amsterdam: you will die today

© andenken

broken fingaz is a graffiti collective with global renown based in tel aviv. one of its four members, named unga, is currently having his first solo show at andenken gallery in amsterdam. ominously entitled you will die today, the artist presents a new body of work on both paper and textile. the first series of large-scale black and white paintings features his well-known fat man character, exploring new scenarios that emphasise the pathos, loneliness and humour in the search for happy death. in the second chapter, Unga experiments with a new medium: a series of meticulously hand-embroidered works made in collab with mayan artisans. these combine pop and folk art aesthetics, suggesting a comment on indigenous style with an invasion of corporate waste and urban animals on the traditional landscape.[on through nov 15]. location: pazzanistraat 17 [staatsliedenbuurt].
