Auteur : Nemo\'s

€ 15.00

A collection of drawings, but above all of the thoughts of this young Italian street artist that looks at the daily life around him from a critical and informed perspective, translating it into images through his peculiar macabre and cynical humour.

His expressive urge is mainly inspired by the wonder aroused by the human potential and at the same time by the repulsion for the so-called “civilized” society that we have managed to create; a society which oppresses, humiliates us and turns us into mere cannon fodder, imprisoning us inside our bulky materiality and into a spasmodic search for perfection and immortality. It is no accident that the protagonists of his works are mainly naked bodies, misshapen and with flaccid skin, often tied, torn apart and caged, and always defenceless and disoriented victims of their degrading human condition. The contradictions, iniquities and deceptions of the world where we are obliged to live therefore take the shape of nightmares that insinuate in the mind and the soul of the spectators in the hope to awaken their desire for redemption.

The choice of street art as an expressive medium precisely derives from the will to extend the communicative potential of pictures as much as possible, immersing them in the city structure in order to democratically involve the people that avail themselves of it and share sensations and thoughts with them.

NemO's started drawing when he was so young he did not even know how to write yet. When he finished middle school he went to an art high school in his city, “Liceo Artistico”, and then he began to enter the “writing” and street art work. When he began drawing on walls in the streets he needed to find a “Tag” for himself and decided that his name would be Nemo, like the captain from Twenty thousand leagues under the sea, the main character from one of Winsor McKay’s first comic strips, and, last but not least, like the Latin word for “no one” which makes his work even more mysterious. He added ’s, the possessive case, so the translation goes from “no one” to “no one’s” and this complete the paradox of this way to identify himself. He began to write his art name on walls, then he abandoned the writing and calligraphic aspect and started reproducing his drawings on those walls. He began to use his characters and drawings to express himself and to translate his ideas into something visual that he couldn’t express with words. In his artistic career he found interest in colours and recycled paper and found himself figuring out how he could “paint” his drawings. So far he had only used spray paint and acrylic colours but paper had something else to it, it was alive. His work is divided into essential and graphic images, with a social message and made up characters that carry out poetic and surreal actions like characters in who knows which fairy tale. Lately he has been joining the “paper technique” with drawings with social themes.
