Spanish artist Gonzalo Borondo, also known as just Borondo, will be opening next Thursday “Animal” his most ambitious solo show to date at Rex Romae gallery in London.
Borondo is renowned for his very particular style characterized by an unusual mix of genres; classic portraiture and street art describes his work as follows:
“The biggest part of my work [is to] try to reflect our dramatic nature. I use the universal body-language to show the issues of the human condition.” – Borondo
In his upcoming exhibition ‘Animal’, the artist aims to explore the conflict between our innate animal instincts and our present lives, which are coated with the dependence of technology and our fear for the unknown.
The exhibition will consist of eight thematic spaces including video installations and painting animations in collaboration with Carmen Maín (Spain), and sculpture installations, created together with Edoardo Tresoldi (Italy) and Despina Charitonidi (Greece).
This epic show will take place in LondonNewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch, and will be open to visitors from the 5th through the 26th of February. If you are lucky enough to be in London during this time, do not miss it. The new body of work is stunning!
