"People" Solo Show
On November 29th the exhibition People by Nico189 opened at Wallness Gallery in Bari (It), a foray into the visual world of the Milan based designer and illustrator Nico189.
The work of Nico189 is mainly based on people and the way they live the streets and his visual research reveals two themes: expressing the illegality of mural art with a pinch of irony and the attempt of interacting with the viewer through the gestures of the characters.
People by Nico189 explores author’s identity and the places he lived the most through the creation of an entire scenario of the streets and the people who experienced them, including street artist.
His peculiar style is essential, fun and influenced by graphic design with a recurrent use of patterns and flat colors with the absence of gradients. Specifically, the use of “verde teal” which is a bright green color used for the entire collection has been selected by the artist from the limited range of colors available using the Risograph printing technique. He created a series of limited edition screen prints and limited edition Risograph using Favini Shiro Echo 250gr paper, all signed and numbered. Also 5 unique hand painted wood sculptures all available for sale on request.
