On Sunday March 13th Punto618 Art Gallery in Turin will be presenting “Mesmerize” a fascinating exhibition that will display the collaborative work of young Italian photographer Livio Ninni and six urban artists; Corn79, Etnik, Fabio Petani, Mrfijodor, Ten and Vesod.
Mesmerize (as the name suggests) is intended to fascinate and mesmerize the viewer when confronted with the meeting of two disciplines, photography and street art and give birth to a new visual language through an exciting experimental artistic collaboration.
The exhibition is comprised of two parts. One displaying the work of Corn79, Etnik, Fabio Petani, Mrfijodor, Ten and Vesod and their unique pictorial language, and a parallel photo exhibition displaying the mural artwork of each artist as a result of close relationship and research of new techniques that give shape to new artistic languages.
The aim of the exhibition and the interesting experimentation behind each piece, is to capture the audience’s gaze and illustrate the power of attraction that urban art has on the viewer. It’s meant to mesmerize you.
“Mesmerize” opens on Sunday March 13th and will be on view until April 24th at the gallery located on Via Cesare Battisti, Venaria Reale, Turin.
