MondoPop Loves Wood
After a successful 2D show, featuring icons and characters from new currents in contemporary art like Jeremy Fish or Camilla d’Errico, MondoPop goes 3D with wood. Painted, modified, customized and recycled, wood tells us the stories and thoughts of the inviting leading artists of the Lowbrow, Pop Surrealist and Urban Art movement.
Wood has long been used as an artistic medium. It has been used to make sculptures and carvings for millennia, like the totem poles carved by North American indigenous people from conifer trunks and the Millennium clock tower, now housed in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. It is also used in woodcut printmaking, and for engraving. Wood, primordial material, offers the possibility to expand an artistic conversation -typically on paper- in order to renew the covenant with our origins.
December 15th MondoPop invites you to Rome find the quiet Xmas atmosphere assuming creepy colors, becoming tinged in Tim Burton’s style, that entertain us thanks to the wonderful contribution of many international artists of the movement: Jeremy Fish, Paul Chatem, Shag, Catalina Estrada, Bigfoot, Camilla D’ Errico.
