Opening Thursday - Oct 7, 2010: The White Train presents "UTOPIA" Gigi Bio Solo Show @ Dis Micro Gallery 68 Jay Street, Suite 221, Brooklyn, NY.
GIGI BIO views the world as a product of the past colliding with the present. She is inspired by the streets, architecture, graffiti, and life. She uses the organic nature of graffiti to drive the flow and mass layering in her work. She aims to expose the emotional side of the city streets pushing the final image to abstraction; juxtaposing a new view of the world.
In her eyes, graffiti exists all around us in reflections, shadows and buildings. Her work is a reflection of life in the streets. Each piece represents a world full of ambition, energy and movements. recreating the world through multiple perspectives captured in various time frames. She encourages the viewer how to fully experience the environment by creating a sense of extreme awareness of the world, to appreciate beauty in the mundane and find order in chaos. Her artwork is greatly inspired by the world, but hidden between the layers is a narrative of life.
