Previews: Francesco Igory Deiana x Atelier Pica Pica – “Meeting On The Shore” @ Park Life

San Francisco’s Park Life will be hosting a July 15th opening for a collaborative exhibition between Francesco Igory Deiana and Atelier Pica Pica entitled Meeting On The Shore. Aside from showing together, the Italian born artist and Belgian art collective actually created the entire body of work together, which resulted in a coherent show. The title was a result of the fact that the artists never really met in person before they decided to collaborate and do this experimental project together. For this show, the artists shared Francesco’s new studio space in the city and created everything together from scratch. They […]

Curated by Alice Wu, the solo from the Oakland-based artist features gouache paintings on wood panels and paper, new prints, zines, and multiples.
