More information about the show: The formal imagery is composed by floral and herbal filigree patterns reminding traditional Chinese paintings or Japanese woodblock prints (“Kacho-e“). Adding abstracted forms of power animals, originated from the ancient shamanic traditions, the visitor is lead to a mystical and visionary dream of a nonexistent world. Sticking to the roots of Graffiti SupaKitch’s works contain calligraphic elements resembling encoded Egyptian Hieroglyphs or secret Runic writings. Both, visual vocabulary and calligraphic features, are very precise and delicate yet vigorous. New working materials come along with the recent exhibition. Layers of fiberglass cloth, polyester resin with pigments and acrylic paint topped by golden flakes are components of the innovative canvases. The result is a multiple layered depth adding a wet and marbled surface, that makes the paintings appear as they were still floating under water. SupaKitch’s artworks captivate its viewer with a penetrating and hypnotic force. The exhibition witnesses a mature, self-contained and grounded artistic development. Living by the ocean does not only indicate a location. From SupaKitch’s perspective it means moreover a harmonic and balanced lifestyle including; painting, tattooing, surfing and traveling.
“On My Wave Home” will be opening January 19, 2017 at 6PM and will run until February 18. For more information about the show, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
