HYMN solo exhibition – “VIRTUAL WALL”
2019. 3. 02 Sat. - 2019. 4. 01 Mon.
at H.P.DECO Small Room of Curiosity No.2
We are pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of HYMN, an up-and-coming artist whose work is still fresh in our minds from UNKNOWNA ASIA 2018, at H.P. DECO Curious Little Room.
HYMN pays homage to various icons of art, including Picasso, Matisse, and other masterpieces from the history of art, as well as graffiti sprayed on, and quotes and remixes digital imagery. The artist's unique style, which he calls "virtual spray," incorporates the spray drop as a product of the passage of time into the two-dimensional pixel.
The title of this exhibition, "Virtual Wall," represents the image of playing with imaginary graffiti art on "walls" in a virtual world that does not exist.
Enjoy the pop world that combines the colorful, uninhibited sprays that symbolize "feeling" for HYMN with the "digital" pixel information that has taken over our lives and now symbolizes reality.
