WYNWOOD ART LAB ORGANIZES THE FIRST EXHIBITION OF ARTIST XRAICH AT THE AXEL
The exhibition "Heads" is composed of concrete sculptures in the form of heades and subliminal messages.
Wynwood Art Lab, with the sponsorship of Wynwood Point of By Bossy Group, organizes the first exhibition of the artist XRAICH in the exclusive AXEL hotel in Barcelona. The exhibition opens on March 15, 2018, and will last one month. It is expected that the show will then travel to other hotels in the chain in Madrid and Ibiza.
They are classicist works produced in the most used material of civilized society today, but with a baroque golden and rusty patina that the artist achieves by mixing dyes directly with the cement. The final pieces appear sculpted in the cement, especially in the "semi-finished" You are here of the series Blokoj.
These materials, hard and cold, combine with his passion for texts and typography, engraving his works of classical aesthetics with contemporary messages that seek to take us a step beyond their mere contemplation as artistic objects and that make us participants in the game of the confrontation of the ancient and the modern.
In the exclusive exhibition "Heads" that is presented at the AXEL hotel, you can see works of the series KAPOJ (2013), BLOKOJ (2017), CORPORIS (2017), and ART IS...(2018).
