Belin – Post Neo Cubism

Belin 01

Spanish graffiti artist Miguel Angel Belinchon Bujes alias Belin is currently showing his first Parisian Solo Show. Curated by Nicolas Couturieux, ” Post Neo Cubism “ features a series of portraits of icons and persons who captured Belin’s life thus the French symbols who glows from France to Andalucia.

Belin is already famous for his talented way of spreading the codes of hyperrealism among suburban landscapes.  A natural sense for proportions allows Belin to be considered as a reference since he has started his work in 2001. His mural paintings, created only from spray techniques without using stencils, are immediately recognisable among others in the eclectic world of urban art.

Over the past 15 years, Belin has captured human nature through his own quest for perfection in shapes and lines. He is now looking after another kind of aesthetic pleasure. That is the reason why he has started to implement multiple angles in his work around faces and bodies, trying to give a better sense of the diversity in human expressions and feelings. Breaking the rules of proportion is now a great source of inspiration and leads him to explore a more subjective art.

In the process, Belin keeps using vivid colours and a mix in textures. These techniques are combined to some elements of its former hyper realistic draw creating a total new dynamic in his pieces. The distance taken from proportions is making its new style even more unique than before. Belin likes to define this experiment as “Post Neo Cubism”, paying his tribute to the amazing work of the Spanish master Pablo Picasso.

The exhibition is very playful and aims to engage with the inner children within us all.

Invader explains – ‘I have myself often drawn inspiration from the world of childhood. Besides, who other than an adult with a child’s soul could devote his life to invading the world with video game characters? Also, this exhibition is very close to my heart because children represent the future. Education and dialogue with children are the key to a good future for humanity and tomorrow’s world.’

A 40-page book containing games and stickers published by Casterman also accompany the exhibition.

Hello My Game is…
26 Jan – 3 Sept 2017

Felipe Pantone is opening “Data Smog” @ Lebenson Gallery, Paris

felipe-pantone4

From 26th of March through 9th of May 2016 Lebenson gallery in Paris will be showing a solo show by Felipe Pantone. Spanish/Argentinian graffiti artist who successfully transfered his futuristic vibrant hi tech style onto a canvas and paper will be showing a new body of work titled “Data Smog”.
As one of the cutting edge urban / street artists out there, Pantone is fusing graffiti, typography and abstraction into a recognizable visual language bursting with ultra-modern aesthetics. Inspired by the technology and information that is influencing and changing our world and society by the minute, the idea of this show is to present the copious amounts of data that accumulates around the world. Though physically invisible and intangible, the artists depicts this “noxious muck and druck of the Information age” through vivid spectrum, highly evolved geometric shapes and rendered dimensional objects. For this show he produced 8 canvases (mostly square shaped), and 4 black and white pieces on paper.
