Streets: Os Gemeos (Milan) – Part II

As previously reported, Os Gemeos recently spent some time in Milan, working on the first intervention in a new program by Pirelli’s HangarBicocca – Outside the Cube. Curated by Cedar Lewisohn, this project is dedicated to street art and related forms of art connected to the urban setting and public contexts, and the twins had the honor to open it with a large mural installation entitled Efêmero (ephemeral). Aside from their undisputed graffiti and fine art world reputation, the Brazilian artists have been steadily confirming their mural art cred with […]

Streets: Os Gemeos (Milan) – Part I

After collaborating with JR (interviewed) in Paris on some meaningful pieces (covered), Os Gemeos traveled to Milan to paint the inaugural mural for the “Outside the Cube” project. Taking advantage of the shape of the Pirelli HangarBicocca building where trains were built in the twentieth century, as well as referencing from the close proximity of railway lines running parallel to the site, the two brothers decided to paint one of their iconic yellow-skinned characters hanging from the back of a subway car. Entitled Efêmero, the almost finished multi-story high […]

Previews: Josh Reames – “Wet & Wild” @ Brand New Gallery

Tomorrow night (April 9th) in Milan, Brand New Gallery will be presenting new works from Josh Reames in a solo entitled Wet & Wild. The Brooklyn-based artist’s paintings are almost collage like in their composition, putting together a stream of consciousness collection of subject matter. He explains – “One thing that I am really interested in is the way that the Internet—browsing, blog rolling, etc.—takes away the hierarchy of image importance, meaning, and connection… I think about painting in a similar way, where images, marks, art historical […]

Showing: Andy Rementer – “The Age Of Innocence” @ Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea

Andy Rementer is currently taking part in a double personal exhibition with Fulvia Mendini at Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea in Milan. The artists joined forces through similar aesthetics of simplified, polished presentation, use of bright colors, and the nostalgia of illustrated children’s stories. Strongly influenced by Milan and its vibe, Rementer produced a body of work that depicts the daily life, routines and the people he met or saw around town. His visual language has been developed through the years from working  as an illustrator and cartoonist for newspapers such […]

Showing: Finok – “Sorrir e Chorar” @ Galleria Patricia Armocida

Galleria Patricia Armocida is currently showing the Italian debut show of young Brazilian artist Raphael Sagarra aka Finok. Sorrir e Chorar looks like his most accomplished exhibition to date, including various styles of works that show his seemingly endless creativity and diversity. Through his previous shows, the São Paulo-based artist was working with different mediums to blend his imagery with different familiar and mostly traditional objects. Rebuilding a traditional Brazilian Botecco bar or reusing children toys such as Pipas and Baloes, he always found a great way to apply his aesthetics with existing concepts. In his […]

Previews: Finok – “Sorrir e Chorar” @ Galleria Patricia Armocida

On Thursday, September 24th, Galleria Patricia Armocida will be presenting a new solo exhibition by the Brazilian artist Finok entitled Sorrir e Chorar. For his Italian debut, Raphael Sagarra aka Finok prepared six medium-scale works on canvas and wood, fifteen drawings, five sculptures, and three site-specific installations based around the idea of duality, or two sides of the same coin. Relying on elements of Brazilian folk culture, the young artist from São Paulo has established himself as one of the more well-known names coming from the epicenter of […]

Showing: “Chained” @ Wunderkammern

Following the theme of this year’s Expo15 in Milan, which is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” Wunderkammern Gallery organized a collateral art project titled Chained.

Entering the final week, the hangar of the Municipality of Milan on Via Amari is currently hosting works by 2501, Atomo, Borondo, BR1, C215, Max Rippo, Sam3, Sten Lex and Edoardo Tresoldi. The lineup for this show is a result of an […]

Openings: James Reka – “Olympvs” @ Avantgarden Gallery

On June 4th, Avantgarden Gallery in Milan opened OLYMPVS, a solo show by James Reka, that will stay on view until THE 10th of July. For this event, the Berlin-based artist created a coherent body of work that mirrors the aesthetics of ancient Greek culture. Showing the typical imagery of that period, through his almost abstract visual language, Reka created an interesting mixture of old and new. Using his strict geo shapes along with spraypaint transparency and solid fill ins, the artist depicts recognizable architectural elements such as arches and […]
