"Artificial Paradise" a solo exhibition by SPEEDY GRAPHITO

Fabien Castanier Gallery

2919 La Cienega Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232

6:00pm to 9:00pm

Fabien Castanier Gallery is proud to present Artificial Paradise, a solo exhibition by Speedy Graphito. This will be the third solo exhibition for the artist in the U.S. and at the gallery.
Speedy Graphito returns to Los Angeles for his first solo exhibition of 2015, presenting new work which takes a critical look at contemporary consumer culture. Commercialism coupled with images of pop cultural icons have remained constant themes throughout Speedy Graphito’s artistic repertoire, however in his new body of work, the artist shifts his creative focus to representations of advertising. By deconstructing and collaging familiar images, Speedy confronts advertising’s unfiltered philosophy.
From the artist: “Presented as the temple of consumerism, this exhibition reveals the hidden faces of advertising and highlights their manipulative power. Hypnotic and powerful brands are decrypted to give us the freedom to break this addiction.” Beautiful women paired with Coke cans, iPods, and designer logos all work in tandem to reflect the multitude of ways in which advertisers have a hold on our subconscious – various fragmented reflections of what and whom we desire based on our consumer impulses.
For this exhibition, Speedy Graphito, as a classically trained painter, uses his skills to create a consumerist utopia. Presenting a simulacrum of artificial images, canonical in our modern society, he re-contextualizes these motifs into a veritable explosion of logos, mascots, slogans, and contemporary paraphernalia. This newest visual landscape presents the most striking exploration of “image overdose”. He proposes, “If the world is a self-representation, we are what we think we see.” His new work will include multimedia pieces, paintings, film, sculpture and large-scale installations.
Artificial Paradise will be Speedy Graphito’s first solo show in the gallery’s new Culver City space and will coincide with the anniversary of the gallery’s relocation. To commemorate the past 4 years that Speedy has spent working in the U.S., the gallery has published a book entitled “Speedy Graphito: Made in America.” The comprehensive volume chronicles the artwork, exhibitions and special projects the artist completed up through 2014, featuring an essay by Los Angeles art critic Shana Nys Dambrot. Since his first solo exhibition at the gallery in 2011, Speedy Graphito has developed a strong presence in the U.S., from his exhibitions to major art fairs. His paintings and sculptures, as well as large-scale installations and murals, have been acquired by private collections across the country and his influence on the American art market continues to grow.
This exhibition is presented in partnership with SANDOW, a diverse portfolio of multiplatform brands across consumer and business media, retail and e-commerce, licensing and marketing services. The company and its Chairman and CEO Adam I. Sandow have long supported the contemporary art and design communities and have been instrumental in helping to introduce Speedy Graphito’s work in the United States.
