Nemco first popped up on our radar thanks to his concept pieces that drew from influences as diverse as renaissance sculptors, Duchamp’s ready-mades, and Damien Hirst’s installations. His take on graffiti is a fresh illustrative approach to linework, and he manages to breathe new life into a culture that’s nearing five decades of history.
Recently, the Italian-born artist has been experimenting with airbrush works, drawing on his trademark palette of grey-scale offset with bold oranges, reds, and pinks. The collective result is Bad Luck, a visual meditation on the concept of superstition. The group of works explore the concept of luck, contrasting personal introspection with dry humour. It’s an impressive body of work from a young artist who’s taking steps to define himself in the gallery space.
The official opening of the show is tomorrow night at Sydney’s Goodspace, from 6pm. Head down to 115 Regent St, Chippendale to check it out. This is one you don’t want to miss.
