The Brazilian duo Bicicleta Sem Freio (“Bicycle Without Brake”) , composed by Douglas de Castro and Renato Perreira are preparing for their first solo show in London UK curated by JustKids and Charlotte Dutoit and hosted by RexRomae gallery.
The new pop-up exhibition has been titled ‘FERA’ and will be showcasing a new body of work full of that highly expressive line work and vibrant colour palette that has become their signature style.
From the press release:
‘“FERA”, translates from Portuguese to mean wild or savage, intends to present on canvas and paper their unexpected juxtaposition of imaginary, rock’n’roll and often provocative subjects. Their sophistication is revealed by the layers of ideas they picture and the references they suggest, showcasing an ironic pop iconography. Dream girls, adorned with 80’s jewellery and ethnic fabrics, entranced by hipster looking panthers or troubadour wizards, inexplicably accompanied by exotic bird hidden in lush vegetation.’
The ephemeral exhibition will open to visitors from the on March 5th and will run through the 8th of March 12p.m. to 6p.m. REXROMAE, 9 Kingsland Rd, London E2 8AA
