gilbert1_fallingtopieces_punto618_09This Sunday is the opening of Falling Into Pieces an exciting new solo show by French visual artist Gilbert1 at Punto618 Art Gallery in Turin, Italy.
Coming from a graffiti background and having devoted himself to calligraphy and typography for a long time, Gilbert1 is one few artists that have managed the transition from the street to gallery working in a variety of media and developing a unique and genuine style.
Falling to pieces will be presenting a new body of different medium works created for the occasion that will include a series of new black and white drawings on paper, canvases and mixed media assemblies in which the artist represents the falling of abstract and geometric destructured elements, as a metaphor of the human who falls and decomposes in the surrounding society. The materials composing the volume works are often broken, and used by their own history, giving an image of a moving and evolving body composed by elements suddenly exploding in a falling scene.

The exhibition Falling to Pieces will be on view from December 13, 2015 until January 17, 2016 at Punto618 Art gallery located in Venaria Reale, Turin.
