| MILAN – Plan X Art Gallery, Viale Bianca Maria 45 |
| from December 1st to January 28th |
Milan, November 2019, – PLAN X Art Gallery is pleased to present OUT OF LINE, the artistic collaboration between the Milanese artist Giampiero Romanò and the young Cuban artist CB Hoyo.
Romanò’s restored and deconstructed antique mirrors meet for the first time CB Hoyo’s “fake” paintings and his caustic reflections on modern society and the world of contemporary art. Two artists, two different ways of observing, mirroring, and reflecting today’s reality. Their styles merge into one, contaminate themselves, and break the mold.
In addition to the 10 works of the two artists, PLAN X focuses the show on two original four-handed made pieces by Romanò and Hoyo, summa and fusion of their creative thinking.
The exhibition OUT OF LINE, open from December 1st to January 28th, can be visited for free by booking an appointment with PLAN X Art Gallery, Viale Bianca Maria 45 in Milan.
GIAMPIERO ROMANÒ, class ’73, forms his craft in his own workshop in Porta Venezia in Milan, between nails, hammers and paints, devoting himself for more than twenty years to the research and restoration of vintage-design pieces. The collaboration with TOILETPAPER Magazine by Maurizio Cattelan brings Romanò and his works under the international spotlight, with his pieces shown in exhibitions at Galerie Perrotin in Paris and Hong Kong.
Ironic, visionary and gifted with great craftsmanship, Giampiero gives voice to his ideas and inspirations, creating an alternative universe made of mirrors – disassembled, reassembled, cut, sewn, lighted, riddled – which perhaps embody his search for an identity, or perhaps they are simply the result of his creative need.
CB HOYO ( 1995, Havana, Cuba) is a Belgium-based artist whose career has been on the steady rise since 2017. After his massive success on Instagram, the self-taught artist is constantly in the public eye with important worldwide exhibitions.
CB Hoyo’s skillfully composed paintings are often spiced with a splash of humor and celebrate life itself in a fresh, colorful, and fun way. In an era shaped by social media and fake news, and where artistic authenticity is highly questionable, CB Hoyo aims to create awareness of the falsity of contemporary society, pointing out that art should always be a way of self expression and joy.
PLAN X is a new generation unconventional art gallery, created by the two founders Marcello Polito and Nicolò Stabile, both under 30, with the aim of overcoming the barriers of elitism and facilitating dialogue between emerging artists and public. Using new technologies and pioneering approaches to digital media, the gallery is recognized for its ability to diversify and broaden the contemporary art public.
