Studio Visit with Spanish artist Borondo
Hookedblog have been huge fans of the work of London based Spanish artist Gonzalo Borondo, who has been wowing us all here in London over the last year and half with his varied body of impressive street works from his haunting images scratched into glass windows of empty shop fronts (covered here) to his reflective water murals in Hackney Wick on walls (covered here) and narrowboats along the canals of the city (covered here).
Following a conversation with the artist late last year we were invited to visit Borondo's London studio and a few weeks ago we took the artist up on his offer and stopped by the space to check in and capture some images to share with you all. Working across three large spaces, the studio was a hive of activity on our visit, with Borondo working on one the many large scale pieces to go on show. Borondo's exhibition is set to include video installations and painting animations in collaboration with Carmen Maín (ES), sculptural installations, created together with Edoardo Tresoldi (IT) and Despina Charitonidi (GR). All four artists were in the studio spaces, each busy putting the finishing touches to work for the show. We have shared a small collection of images here, giving us a glimpse of what we can expect to find at his eagerly awaited exhibition 'Animal'.
Curated by Rom Levy, of RexRomae, and Charlotte Dutoit of Justkids, the exhibition is set to be Borondo’s most ambitious display to date with the artist creating an immersive experience for the show attendees. The exhibition will bring you on a sensory path where you will discover the various predicaments of the relationship between human beings and nature across eight thematic spaces in the cavernous London Newcastle space.
To celebrate the upcoming opening of "Animal", Borondo and RexRomae will be releasing a limited edition screen-print on the evening entitled "Fake Paradise", based on a street piece painted by the artist in Shoreditch last year (covered here). The ANIMAL show will take place at the London Newcastle Project Space in Shoreditch and will be open to the public from the 5th through to 28th of February 2015.
