Starting March 10th and until May 7th, Galleria Patricia Armocida will be showing Transitions, an exhibition by Mode 2 (interviewed). Coming back to Italy after taking part in Bridges of Graffiti collateral event of the 56th International Venice Biennale Arte (covered), this is the British artist’s first solo show in the country.
For this showing, the internationally acclaimed artist will present twelve large and medium-scale canvases and a site-specific wall painting featuring his refined technique and translucent brush strokes. By depicting sensual female figures, clubbers and couples dancing, his works rely on the power of light and shadows. This effect further emphasizes the legendary writer’s focus on movement and rhythm, which is the key element of his work. This inspiration comes from Mode 2 connection with hip hop culture in the 80s and the social interaction and physical expressiveness of people at parties in London clubs.
