TONIGHT: FADO: the last man The artwork of GG (Gabriel Gimenez)
7-10 PM – Thursday, Jan 23, 2014 Castle Fitzjohns Gallery -98 Orchard St, Ny, Ny 10002
Castle Fitzjohns Gallery is pleased to announce the latest exhibition from
international pop-artist, Gabriel Gimenez (b 1991), or GG, ‘Fado: the last man‘.
Born in Venezuela, based in Miami, but exhibiting from Milan to Berlin, Los
Angeles to New York, this 23-year-old sensation redefines the role of the cultural
icon with his own. Warhol, Basquiat, Wonder woman, and Batman: at the end of
history, GG uses an original caricature, Fado, to explore at the intersection of
personal memoir, popular culture, and a rugged street aesthetic, exemplifying a
playful, but at times dark ethos of ‘confusion and curiosity’—by an artist not
emerging, but ever emergent—at the forefront of art and design.
