The acclaimed Brazilian artist duo warm up the London winter with
their tropical wonderland ‘FERA’.
JustKids are holding a pop-up exhibition in London showcasing the artworks of internationally famed Brazilian duo of illustrators Bicicleta Sem Freio (‘Bicycle Without Brakes’). Curated by Charlotte Dutoit from JUSTKIDS, the ephemeral exhibition will be open to visitors from the 5th through the 8th of March at RexRomae.
Following their recent international large-scale public artworks across Europe and America in major cities likes London, Berlin, Miami, Las Vegas or Los Angeles (where they painted the largest building ever in DownTown LA), Bicicleta Sem Freio, aka Douglas de Castro and Renato Perreira, are preparing for their first ever solo show in London UK, where they will translate their signature style of highly expressive line work and vibrant color palette writing into bold fine art work.
‘FERA’, translates from Portuguese to mean wild or savage, the duo plan to present on canvas and paper their unexpected juxtaposition of imaginary, rock’n’roll and often provocative subjects. Their sophistication is revealed by the layers of ideas they picture and the references they suggest, showcasing an ironic pop iconography.
Dream girls, adorned with 80’s jewellery and ethnic fabrics, entranced by hipster looking panthers or troubadour wizards, inexplicably accompanied by exotic bird hidden in lush vegetation. More than enough to keep your eyes wide open and to ensure you are mesmerized by Bicicleta’s ‘Fera’ without brakes!
Exhibition dates: Opening March 5th 6-9pm, the exhibition runs until March 8th, 2015 12p.m. to 6p.m. at REXROMAE, 9 Kingsland Rd, London E2 8AA
