MISTERPIRO Retorn a l’illa
Misterpiro is a visual/urban artist, internationally recognized. He will present his new exhibition under the title “Retorn a l’illa”, composed by 15 works, the largest size ever presented.
“Retorn a l’illa” is a project that has been developed since June at Gerhardt Braun Gallery – Artist in Residence.
In his second residence with Gerhardt Braun Gallery, urban artist Misterpiro returns to what is already one of his places in the world, Mallorca.
“Retorn a l’illa” is a celebration of the island, a tribute in which each painting becomes a photograph of his soul, all the shades of the blue of the sea that embraces its coast, the ochre of the stones of the villages of the Tramuntana mountains, the green that floods everything or the range of roses that blur the sky at sunset.
But it also portrays its form; water in the diluted stains of color or in the drops that dot the canvas, or the rocks that drill the island, represented by the abrupt cuts that cross the painting with its lines that evoke the slanted profiles, drawn by the mountains on the horizon.
That mixture of color and shape, floods the larger-format pictures that the artista has never faced before. Some are excessive, overflowing with stains ,lost between colored threads. Others are calmer and rising in front of us with an enduring elegance.
The same thing happens in Mallorca: Paradise shared by the multitude with crowded beaches or a place known to a few with hideouts full of calm. Dicctomy that is also present in the work of the artist, a work sometimes chaotic, sometimes serene. In “Retorn a l’illa” both styles coexist in harmony and, precisely thanks to this cohabitation,Misterpiro's work today achieves his maturity.
