CLAUDIO ETHOS – Nostalgia
Hosted By 19 KAREN
March 30th - April 27th, 2013
Nostalgia is an exhibition about an abundant and melancholic atmosphere associated with women in the early 20th century. In this new series of portraits Claudio Ethos submerges himself in this by-gone era, exploring the notion of nostalgia. With a contemporary vision of urban art, Ethos transports us to a universe of female sensibility; a place full of dreams, desires, sensuality and some moments of madness.
Throughout Claudio’s career he has followed a trajectory of monochromatic paintings with touches of surrealism and melancholia. The results are a study on the feminine world, whilst staying true to his urban and edgy style. This show comes from years of experience of painting wall murals and research into vintage photographs, resulting in a series of canvases created with delicate and meticulous techniques, using spray paint and mixed media.
