MARBLES AND BRONZES
Exhibition dates: 09.10.20 – 01.11.20
StolenSpace Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition of new work by PichiAvo. The show, ‘Marbles and Bronzes’ will explore classical sculpture, with the artists’ signature contemporary twist.
PichiAvo is a duo of street artists, Juan Antonio and Álvaro, both hailing from Valencia in Spain. Both trained in Fine Art and Design before they met on the graffiti scene in Valencia, which led to their formation of PichiAvo in 2007. Pursuing joint projects, they focused on skills and techniques to develop their recognisable style and showcase what defines them: graffiti and classical art.
They have achieved global recognition for their skills at uniting the connection between painting and sculpture in urban settings. Their innovative approach at creating these fusions reveals the beautiful balance that can be achieved between classical and contemporary art.
Working both outside and inside the studio, PichiAvo’s work experiments across all mediums – including painting, sculpture, and installation. ‘Marbles and Bronzes’ is a study of sculptures from the classical period, with specific focus on marble and bronze pieces. PichiAvo pay tribute to these classical masterpieces by re-representing them with a modern twist for a contemporary audience. The artists’ pay homage to original techniques and materials, which have allowed these sculptures to be preserved.
