"Vide e Morte"

Carmichael Gallery presents Vide e Morte, a group show featuring three of street art capital Brazil’s most talented new voices: Alexandre Anjo, Andre Firmiano, and Pankill. Artwork on display will include works on canvas, wood, fabric, and paper. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 20th, 2008.
All three artists are flying into Los Angeles from São Paulo to create an on-site installation and attend the reception. The exhibition will be open for viewing through Sunday, October 12th, 2008.
In Vida e Morte, Firmiano explores the socio-economic impact of globalization and urbanization in São Paulo. With clean geometric lines and a monochromatic palette, he delineates the chaos, frustration, and despair inherent in the city’s inhabitants.
Pankill’s focus is the duality of good and evil that exists in every human being. Working with a powerful combination of black, white, and red, her artwork is spiked with images of knives, anchors, axes, and snakes that belie the pretty painted faces of her 1920s-inspired characters.
Anjo infuses his artwork with vibrant colors that represent the four elements. His flamboyant, sensual portrayals of people, animals, and nature are inspired by the heady atmosphere of São Paulo and his interest in Eastern art and philosophy.
