CALL AHEAD - In these times of concern, Soul Of Miami recommends that you call ahead before attending any event to confirm it is still happening. Many events are being canceled with very little notice. Most of all, be safe, we love you!
Spinello Gallery is proud to present the much-anticipated solo exhibition by TYPOE, “BANG BANG.” The multimedia exhibition features works on paper and sculpture. This will be TYPOE’s second solo exhibition with Spinello Gallery.
Cast between worlds of opposing values, at once an anonymous prestidigitator and high-ranking glitterati, TYPOE straddles an unseen fence. His handiwork, which swaths billboards, public arenas, and buildings literally rotting with neglect, has expanded from the crumbling edifice of a cultural misnomer into the social spotlight. By nature a commenter, a heckler, his self-referential styling’s are violent and poetic in equal measure. Illuminating parodies between gang relations and organized religion, corporations and the massacre of war, TYPOE’s mixed media creations range from factory finished luxury items and graphics to vandalized found objects that flaunt a punk-like disregard for beauty. Simmering for the moment under the lid of ‘the gallery’, “BANG BANG.” is where these fetishistic, narcissistic articles resonate with devastating potential and beget insurgent thoughts.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 11th, 2010 / Exhibition through October 2nd, 2010.
