VITOR DOS SANTOS – Yelling at Letters

Hosted By 19 Karen

September 26th - October 17th, 2009

Vitor Dos Santos was born in Portugal, raised in Sydney and is now based in Brisbane. A bilingual artist who travelled throughout childhood, Vitor’s new series explore his curiosities with language, travel, imagination and exploration, as well as his disenchantment with languages, communication and social hierarchies. For instance, Vitor says, the “burst word bubbles, floating letters and clumsy figures with strange hats, subtly mock their own existence.  The loose line work, rapid application of paint and child-like irreverence to formal etiquette only adds to the ironic disposition of the work.”
