Remio, a renowned graffiti artist originally from Norway. His infamous tags and throw-ups can be found all over the world, led with his trademark anthropomorphic, angular, and true character in all senses of the word, “R.” Remio comes from a special lineage of hard-hitting all-out graffiti artists, with a very old school ethic of getting up everywhere, but he has recently shown work inside galleries in San Francisco, Paris and Venice, Italy. This new exhibit features canvas paintings with his strong graphic lexicon of characters, symbols and shapes amongst a bright colorful background of patterns, while keeping his distinct and brilliant style of line and fluid form intact. The paintings are consistent with the genuine spirit of his graffiti, retaining his unique faces and playful mood, while living inside the very specific form of the canvas.
