Pokras Lampas: F is for... Fendi

Virtuoso painter Pokras Lampas went big for a project for "F is for… FENDI", painting the largest calligraphy ever created in Italy! 

No less than 500 litres of yellow paint were needed to cover the 1250 square meters of the roof of the magnificent FENDI Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana (Colosseo Quadrato) in Rome. According to the artist, the piece is about the millenials generation and their aspiration to "freedom, being fearless, freaky and having fun".

Congratulations to Pokras Lampas for an impressive and visually striking performance!

David Kim Whittaker at La Fondazione Mudima, Milan

The exhibition 'A Portrait for Human Presence' by David Kim Whittaker and curated by Joseph Clarke opens on 6 June 2017 at La Fondazione Mudima in Milan, Italy. It will run until 7 July 2017.

‘Portrait for Human Presence’ is an exhibition of new works, offering an overview of a number of key themes that feature in David Kim Whittaker's pantheon of imagery. ‘Journeys of Hope and Despair’ illustrates an exodus, where hope is sustained and salvation is sought on the journey from Damascus. The monumental ‘Perpetual Sin’ triptychs illustrate mankind in conflict, our primal urge to tear apart and destroy, where power and greed cast long shadows, and where the sacred is sacrificed and divinity is lost. And finally ‘The Feminine Oppressed’ is a small series of works where one is urged to contemplate that boys and girls are not always born equal depending on where in the world they originate.

The exhibition also coincides with the launch of a 160-page monograph with texts by Joseph Clarke, David Kim Whittaker and David Rosenberg.

Manolo Vald├ęs: solo exhibition at Opera Gallery Paris

A painter, drawer, sculptor and engraver, Manolo Valdés is internationally known and regarded as one major figure of the art scene of the second half of the 21st century. Since the beginning of 2017, Opera Gallery has proudly collaborated with the Spanish artist worldwide; and we are now delighted to formally and officially introduce his work to the Paris art scene. 

From June 2nd to July 2nd, the exhibition "Los Géneros : Pintura e Escultura" will take place at Opera Gallery Paris. Manolo Valdés will revisit the classic theme of female portrait through a collection of sculptures - some monumental - carved out of wood, aluminum or bronze; as well as with paintings created out of rich and diverse materials such as oil, canvas and burlap.

Throughout the exhibition, Manolo Valdés will use his signature “cobalt” blue as the base for a reflexion on his personal history as well as on the history of art; thus transcending forms and revisiting the traditional codes of iconography in visual art. 

"Los Géneros : Pintura e Escultura" is Manolo Valdés’s first great solo exhibition in Paris and 90% of the works exhibited have never been shown to the public before!
