'The Lonely Firefly' solo exhibition
The pioneering art toy shop and gallery space was launched towards the end of last year and I was invited to be the first artist to show there - Grazie Ragazzi! It’s a great venue in the centre of town run by the supremely talented Italian design supremo Mauro Gatti of Mutado his wife the equally supreme Giusy (who’s blog is always worth checking), and the just as supreme Piero Degasperi who owns and runs Atom Plastic here in Bassano and to whom i still owe a pizza.
Atom has been pioneering the art toys, comic books, and all round good art market in Italy for several years now and the new site in Milan is testament to the Italians impeccable taste ;)
The show features a selection of some of my favourite pieces i’ve made for the fashion industry over the last 5 years and the images are accompanied by a selection of the garments and accessories made from the designs. The show will also feature the unveiling of the limited edition figure ‘The Lonely Firefly’ commissioned for the show and produced in an edition of 25. A selection of leather accessories i collaborated on with Cailfornia label Tookata People will also be available at the show. Atom were kind enough to interview me earlier in the week.
Be great to see you if you’re in the area - Atom Plastic Milano, Thursday 04th Feb. at 18:00h.
