Vernissage + Exhibition Friday, August 28th starting at 6pm.
Admission free / Eintritt frei
Working tirelessly as a street artist and studio artist, ZORZORZOR is making her rounds across the globe. She began her work and personal study in Paris, adapted it to her hometown streets of Chicago, and since then has quickly grown to bringing it to every city she encounters on her journey. Working with materials she finds along the way, ZORZORZOR loves to compose shapes and lines, creating mask like faces and figures. Without any formal training, her work is intuitive, often expressing hidden emotions she holds within herself. She frequently uses words and phrases to further draw the viewer into her works.
ZORE and ZORZORZOR has previously shown work at the Chicago Cultural Center and the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago, and is working on an anticipated solo exhibition at Elephant Room Gallery in Chicago this May. Last year they also both exhibited at the one-day Lost and Found Exhibition at QL-Gallery Berlin together with Keep Berlin Weird artists Mein Lieber Prost and Rolly.
Artists ZORE as Mario Gonzalez Jr. (a.k.a Zore64) and ZORZORZOR have been working closely for 2 years time, traveling, painting and showing side by side. Coming from different backgrounds, experiences, and skill sets, their work uniquely compliments the others. Mario’s abstract graffiti letter forms and wildstyles are both bold and subtle, while ZORZOR’s figures are delicately powerful. Together they love to play with layers, sometimes going from piece to piece and adding their marks on each others works. In the end, one artist may dominate the piece, however the influence of both is reflected, whether faintly or distinctly.
After working so closely for such amount of time, the two artists will spend a month apart, creating separate individual works in separate locations. Here in Berlin they will meet again, joining their work together, and possibly transforming it completely. Jointly, they will create site specific paintings, collaboratively on location, each bringing what they gained with their time away.
Our friends from Bangkok Street Food Kitchen will have cold Thai beer (Singha und Chang) readily available for you to quench you beer thirst!
