Imperfections Reflections: Mr. Di Maggio + Twoone (aka Hiroyasu Tsuri) from AVANTGARDEN GALLERY, Milan – Opening Thursday, October 8 18.30 – Runs from 8th October to 28th November 2015
Two different personalities but united by the same introspective approach fraught with psychological references: both make a “trip”, in their unconscious, for a face to face with his dark side, two artists who through the language of street art tell us about them and maybe even a little about us.
From Avantgarden Gallery, Mr. Di Maggio and Twoone, each with their own distinctive mark, will exhibit a series of new works that are a tribute to the concept of beauty.
Hiroyasu Tsuri, aka TWOONE, was born and raised in Japan. At the age of 18 he moved to Melbourne, Australia where he was awarded a Distinguished Talent Visa. He now lives in Berlin with his Australian wife and makes awesome art based around impressionist paintings of animals. His latest show opens alongside Reka’s at Stolenspace on Thursday 11th September. When VNA was in Berlin for the Urban Nation Project M series, we caught up with Hiro at his studio to talk about his journey so far.
Australian film maker Michael Danischewski has teamed up with Japanese born, Berlin-based artist, Hiroyasu Tsuri- aka TWO ONE- to deliver “Cast A Shadow”, A filmic portrait.
Cast a Shadow deliberately eschews a process driven thematic, choosing instead to take the viewer on an intimate exploration of the artist’s many characters and the creative beast that lies within. An investigation into Twoone’s psychological portraiture series, the film delves deep into the artist’s subconscious and demonstrates the physical manifestation of these thoughts as they arise during the creative process.
The resulting film is as innovative as it is insightful as we watch the artistic progression unfold from subconscious thought, to cognition and into its final iteration as a physical object.
