Urban Art Exhibition | Yesterday, West Berlin Gallery opened its doors for the opening of the “The Hidden Side” exhibition by French graphic designer, illustrator and fine artist Sebastien Feraut a.k.a Niark1! I joined together with some friends and was impressed by the complexity and explicitly of the paper, canvas and other various mixed media paintings…
With a multitude of inspirations, ranging from all kinds of music to create, to 80s horror films, David Lynch, Hayao Miyazaki animations, Francis Bacon, Basquiat, Constructivism, Cubism, graffiti and street art, subcultures, the list is endless, Niark1’s work reflects the pop surrealism of the Low Brow Movement. Like the roots of a tree on speed his paintings crawl and sprawl, filling up the whole canvas with the vivid creations of his imagination. (westberlingallery.com)
After having some small talk with Niark, who wants to come back to Berlin in Summer, I took for sure some photos. Those of you who now think they missed something, have time to pop up at the show until April 16th!
