StolenSpace Gallery is proud to present ‘Echoes’ a new solo show from Von.
Von’s artwork is both detailed and abstract, being able to flawlessly walk the line between surrealism and documentary portraiture capturing a mood in what appears to be a fleeting moment in time. Having worked primarily as an award winning illustrator, Von’s work has featured in publications across the globe. His work has been used in international brand campaigns, such as Nike, and been featured in gallery shows worldwide.
What began as just a small section of studies titled ‘Elsewhere’ has now blossomed into a body of work in it’s own right. In ‘Echoes’ we see Von push his obsessive exploration into contemporary portraiture and mark making even further. With his multi faceted use of graphite, each development of this body of work blurs the line between what is considered a drawing, and what is a painting.
