Laser 3.14 Show - March 20th - May 1st
Our friend and comrade Laser 3.14 (Featured in LSD Magazine) is doing a great show for later this month...Please Find Details Below...
Art exhibition ‘Can I please finish my sentence for…’
Laser 3.14, March 20th - May 1st 2010
On Saturday March 20th at 17.00 the gallery RADAR Architecture & Art will start the exhibition ‘Can Iplease finish my sentence for…’
which will show artwork from the well-known streetpoet Laser 3.14. Radar
Architecture & Art invites all interested to the opening of the show and for some drinks at the Eerste Rozendwarsstraat at 17hs.
Laser's artwork, just like his poems on the street, is cerebral. He is asking the city dweller questions about living in the urban area. He lets his cartoon style clash with the expressionistic painters touch, words dripping from canvas and wall. His words search for the comical and the quizzical: Who are you, who am I, who are we who live in this world of concrete and brick, artifice and glass. One of the most intriguing aspects of Laser's art is his interest in everyday life, a need to wake up the commuter and the housewife alike and show them that everything grows and not all graffiti are senseless ego, not all that seems dirty is dirt.
The short poems that one can find disseminated through the cities, produce a double effect: on one hand they frame and enrich in a poetic sense anonymous points of the city. On the other, they capture the attention of random passer-by's, stimulating a reflection that hardly could take place along those crowded and chaotic streets. In other words, the obsessive rhythm of the citizen is being transformed into a dreamy
and reflective dimension. The exhibition tries to reflect the essence of the street work of Laser 3.14 and to accompany the visitor, this time conscious and no longer accidental, on a journey along graffiti-based paintings, graphic styled drawings and 3D artwork. A great variety of different styles, techniques and materials, meticulously used, can be expected to be seen.
About the artist:
Laser 3.14 is an artist, cartoonist and poet, but is mostly known for his unique style of streetart/graffiti in the streets of Amsterdam, London and other European cities. Short poems like: 'Today I hired a detective to track me down', 'Binary code be my name' or 'He cut out both his eyes so he could finally see' are his trademark next to his tag. For Laser 3.14 the city is his canvas. His poetry appears on ‘temporary’ materials, like fences, containers, port cabins and scaffolding. Laser 3.14 is also known for his gallery artwork. He has had multiple expositions in galleries in
Amsterdam and London.
