Hunto At Rarekind Gallery

RareKind presents the first London solo show by Italian Graffiti artist, Hunto. Best known for his cubist influenced canvases and delicate line drawings, Hunto introduces a unique quality to the graffiti art scene, marrying non-conformist 20th century art characteristics to the equally non-conformist medium of graffiti art.

The London show, hosted by RareKind opens tonight 19th at the Rag Factory, is a culmination of his canvas, sketch, screen print and sculptural work, with a strong theme based around the human figure and that most beguiling of subjects, sex.

Born in Brindisi, South Italy in 1982, Hunto started his career as a graffiti artist in 1996 and explored many themes and painting genres. Massively inspired by the work of Picasso and Braque, he honed his style to give a retro twist to graffiti art and thus, his characters and designs became well known and loved on the streets of Italy.

Private view Thursday 19th November – RSVP bex@rarekind.co.uk
The artist will be painting live at the Rag Factory on Sunday 22nd November.
