Pigalle Gallery is pleased to announce the inaugural exhibition of visionary New York artist entrepreneur Gus Fink and award- wining Argentinian artist Humberto Poidomani in a one-of-a-kind, highly anticipated art exhibition. 'The Hall of Wonders' opens with a reception on Thursday, May 16th from 6-9pm. The exhibit is curated by DAM, The Directed Art Modern, and runs through June 30, 2019 featuring the latest small and large-scale paintings by Gus Fink and Humberto Poidomani.
Poidomani’s work explores the journey of Dante through inferno followed by Purgatorio guided by the ancient Roman poet Virgil and Paradiso guided by Beatriz whom the artist in this case symbolizes as the Virtue itself. The rendition of this journey is displayed over the city of Florence. “Sometimes when I open my eyes, I see Hell, I quickly take my brushes and paints and I start painting… slowly I start to calm down. At times I see people walking, but they are just bodies floating. We live in a world of transparent lies and if we have lost the paradise, why should we pay the debt for having lost it if perhaps never existed?”, explained artist Humberto Poidomani.
Poidomani has presented his works in numerous museums, galleries and art fairs. His solo shows include a retrospective in the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo of Salta Province, Argentina; E.C.A. Contemporary Spaces of Art in Mendoza, Argentina, and Scope New York.
Artist Gus Fink is recognized from his Art Loop exhibitions, The Oddball Art Hall at Oddity Bar, his collaboration with Spaceboy Clothing GUS FINK: Don’t Let Go. Mickey in Chaos land, Mr. Cuddless or his creepy toy brand Dr. Krinkles. His style is bizarre and unsettling, yet magnetically appealing, sometimes even cute.
“What gives us joy and inspiration can be more than words or money can ever buy. I find joy on taking what is and isn’t important and turning it into something fresh. Something new and inspiring for people to wonder on about and bring new purpose. To me good art is a good idea. It’s bringing out something that didn’t exist before into our reality. This is why I’ll rip pages from an old dictionary or comic book. Or paint on currency. From pictures that were once the most valuable thing of old families to chunks of cardboard from an Amazon box. I let the paint pour out from my soul and onto any canvas that gets tossed in my line of vision,” explained artist Gus Fink.
