Valencian urban artist Vinz is going to open his first solo show in Austria in two days! Vinz, whose life-sized wheatpastes can be found in the streets around the globe, was recently part of a group show currated by the founders of Wooster Collective, and exhibited at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York.
In his works he usually combines humor and politically charged messages and uses nude male and female figures as a symbol of freedom, which is why they normally attract much attention…
This taboo imagery causes even more issues when working in the streets where the public is forced to view them. Clearly Vinz is not a big fan of the police either, choosing to portray them as lizards or other reptiles. (show announcement)
Now, Inoperable Gallery in Vienna shows his latest works and series in a nice solo-exhibition, starting March 30th, 2012! So if you’re in Vienna, check this out and don’t forget the urban art festival Escape the Golden Cage neither!
