When anthropomorphic figures, representing body and soul, remind of complete beings – it must be MONKEBIRD showing at Pretty Portal gallery. The French duo crew, based in Paris, have progressed hugely in the last couple of years and have brought to the public, some jaw droping, wall creations and installations as well as stunning gallery shows. This Friday (29.11.) we will open the gates for MONKEBIRD´s solo show "Betwewen here and now" and we are pretty excited about it. If you are around, we would be happy to invite you to the opening of the show.
Send me a PM with your mail address, if you would like to receive the collectors preview (pdf) of the show.
On the opening night we will also present MONKEYBIRD´s latest screen print. The print will be released on 5th of December at shop.prettyportal.de
BETWEEN HERE AND NOW
Opening reception 29.11. 7-10 pm Show 02.12.19 – 31.01.20 MO – FR 11am-7pm and by appointment
MONKEYBIRD´s work show a search for balance between dreams and reality. Loaded with symbols and allegries, their pieces are an emotional and rational discussion about human progress. Most MONKEYBIRD artworks incorporate a humanoid monkey and bird, which represent the two faces of humankind, the monkey being the realist, and the bird being a dreamer. The artists try to follow the ancestor’s knowledge and adapt it to reach the modern citizens mind, with symbolic pictures. MONKEYBIRD are inspired by ephemeral monumentality, religious and mythological paintings and art nouveaux.
