COUP DE FOUET || DIAMOND

Anthony Roth Gallery | Paris, France

From the 1st to the 20th of September 2018

The Anthony Roth gallery is pleased to welcome the Italian artist Diamond with his new solo exhibition titled Coup de Fouet. Coming from the Urban and Roman Street scene, Diamond’s work offers a vision that oscillates between art nouveau and the tradition of rock posters from the ’70s and’ 80s. Graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, the artist uses a series of mixed techniques to provide his personal vision in a mixture of psychedelic, social commitment and a direct line to the history of art.

The exhibition consists of works on paper that pay homage to one of the most famous artistic trends from which it draws inspiration: the Art Nouveau, whose title is also a direct reference. The Whiplash Line is then used to define the curves of the sinuosity of the plants, in the desire to bring the nature, characteristic of the Art Nouveau works and architecture, used for example by Hector Guimard for the design of its mouths in the Paris Metro.

The Whiplash Line is then used to define the curves of the sinuosity of the plants, in the desire to bring the nature, characteristic of the Art Nouveau works and architecture, used for example by Hector Guimard for the design of its mouths in the Paris Metro.

Therefore, Diamond establishes the right in the wake of this characteristic style that represents the phase of artistic transition between the nineteenth and twentieth century. In transforming his abstract arabesques and in the emblematic relationship between illustration, text and the figurative iconography Rock, then he transmits an art that unites the melancholic sensuality with the culture of the tattoo, always keeping his ironic gaze on the society of today.
