Berlin-based non-profit art association The Art Union, recently announced „I’ll Bring You Flowers“, a solo exhibition by Vienna based artist Peter Phobia. Opening on September 15th @ Sound of Snow as part of an exchange program between Vienna and Berlin based artists, the exhibition will be coinciding with this year’s Berlin Art Week.
Peter Phobia is an artist who is predominantly focusing on drawing, with works ranging from small pieces on paper to large murals. Using limited color in his work, and mixing text with visual elements, his work is “an open invitation to reflect on current topics in society”. In body of work prepared for this show, Phobia focuses on social media obsessed society and the way these channels become the source for political information and education. By using the aesthetic of 70s and 80s the artist evokes melancholy for “times passed” when the line between the truth or fact and lie or scam was much clearer. Through scribbled notes next to the pictures he is urging the viewer to stop blindly falling for superficial offers and fake attractiveness. For this occasion the artist painted a 400sqm mural and will release an exclusive 3-colour screen print in an edition of 50.
