Opening reception: Friday, June 9th, 2023
Mirus Gallery is pleased to present “GLITSHN AROUND” a solo exhibition by Gera1. Emerging street artist hailing from Athens, Greece, this is Gera1’s first solo exhibition in the United States. For this exhibit, Gera1 has created ‘glitch’ paintings on cut aluminum with colorful overlays expressing multiple actions within each piece. Opening Friday, June 9th from 7-10pm.
About the Artist: Gera is a Visual Artist who lives and works in Athens, Greece. He started as a graffiti writer and he has also graduated from the School of Fine Arts. His practice focuses on reinterpreting reality through the visualization of recurring color contrasts.
Getting his influence from the glitch art aesthetic, he attempts to intercommunicate parallel stories narrated through multiple layers of movement, form, and texture. His figurative expression becomes part of an abstract language where malfunction, error, and deformation coexist in an environment of harmonic deconstruction.
As a graffiti artist, he aims to work on different surfaces using spray paint as his primary material. Through distortion and visual glitches, he creates fragmented structures that redefine the limits of the real and the illusion of perfection. In his latest work, big-scale compositions are conveyed into abstract-shaped canvases, optimizing the application of antithetic materials.
