Glasgow’s Recoat Gallery is just about to open a solo exhibition from New York painter, Matt Mignanelli, entitled The Paradigm. He has been there since Sunday and the team has been prepping ever since, most of the work is up and the mural is almost done. Recoat Gallery tells us show is looking amazing, the work is very cool, all brush painted, no masking and really tight. Opening on 2nd April the show runs through till 2nd May.
Mignanelli was born in Providence, RI in 1983 and currently lives and works in New York City. He achieved a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and has gone on to forge a highly successful career as an exhibiting artist, designer, mural painter and lecturer. He has exhibited extensively throughout the USA, and in the UK, Berlin and Sydney. His work has been showcased in publications such as Gudberg Magazine (Germany), GQ (UK), Dazed and Confused, Honolulu Magazine and Transworld Skateboarding. In 2010 he will also hold a solo show in San Francisco and guest lecture at the Art Directors Club of Tulsa.
Mignanelli draws inspiration from pattern, light and emotion, while exploring the relationships between structure, nature and energy within his works. His colour choice is informed by the urban environment that surrounds him; each piece a personal narrative of stored memories expressed through organic forms juxtaposed against geometric shapes.
