Born in Milan in 1969, Loris Cecchini lives and works in Berlin. One of the most prominent Italian artists on the international scene in the last decade, he has shown his work around the world, with solo shows at prestigious museums and galleries.
He has exhibited his works in solo and group shows in prestigious museums and galleries including; Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Musée d’Art Moderne de Saint-Etienne Métropole, MOMA PS1 in New York, Shanghai Duolun MoMA in Shanghai, the Kunstverein in Heidelberg, Galleria Continua, San Gimignano. Cecchini has also participated in various international art events, including the 49th and 51th Venice Biennale, the 6th and 9th Shanghai Biennale, the 13th and the 15th Rome Quadriennale, the Taipei Biennial (Taiwan), the Valencia Biennial and the 12th International Sculpture Biennale of Carrara. He has also contributed to many group shows, including the Ludwig Museum of Cologne, Palazzo Fortuny in Venice and Macro Future in Rome.
Born in León (Spain) in 1968 and at the end of the eighties he studied Fine Arts at the University of Salamanca. Throughout his professional career, Verbis, who has never stopped experimenting and renewing his plastic language, has managed to produce a hybrid work that has been seen in various galleries, fairs and art centers such as the MUSAC of León, the CAB of Burgos, the Drawing Center in New York or the DA2 in Salamanca. At the beginning of the nineties his work was moving away from painting to give way to works with a marked conceptual character. In these works, authorship was annulled by graphically recording linguistic propositions or formulas, which resulted in a series of drawings on the wall or on intervened recycled papers. These works, sometimes ephemeral, constitute the most representative part of his work until the end of that decade. Starting in 2000, Verbis's work became more restless and he began to introduce unusual materials into his painting (cotton threads, plasticine, canvas, buttons…). In an attempt to reconstruct the idea of the painting as an object, I end up deconstructing the idea of what painting could or could not be. It is just at that moment when the frame becomes a characteristic element of his painting. Today Verbis painting has become more introspective, more complex. His work forks into heterogeneous paths that are not always easy to follow: on the one hand, Verbis practices a biomorphic abstract painting in large polyptychs and on the other hand an action painting whose best exponent are his mural works. Nor can we forget his disturbing sculptures or his works on paper: drawings, engravings, photographs and collages in which a certain sui generis figuration makes an appearance.
Ómò Oba (HRH) Adétòmíwá A. Gbadébò
Born Ómò Oba (Prince) Adétòmíwá A. Gbadébò in Abeokuta, Nigeria; into three royal families: the Gbadébò royal family of Egba Kingdom and the Adémilúyì family (Lafogido ruling house) of Ilé-Ifè Kingdom as well as the Oshodi (Tapa) royal family from Lagos; who originally are from the Nupe kingdom (Now Bida). Òmó Oba (Prince) Gbadébò uses his Yorùbá heritage and life experiences to create his pieces based on emotions and the journey that life stitches; he embodies a spiritual trance while he creates. He does not associate himself with any artistic movements; for it is with the guidance of Olódùmarè that he executes his messages. As multiple ideas develop in his conscious and unconscious mind, they evolve into languages of spiritual prowess, guided by Orishas (Yorùbá spiritual ancestors), Olódùmarè (Yorùbá creator of all beings on earth) and Ifá philosophy (Yorùbá religious concept), with the inclusion of his global travels. He also pushes to teach humanity to truly see what they are choosing not to see; question all conscious solutions given, while selflessly aiming for positive progression for all alike and different. Yorùbá spirituality, earth, teachings of communal emphasis, human will, Yorùbá music by greats such as Chief Hubert Ogunde, Duro Ladipo as well activist and musician Fela Anikulapo Kuti have a huge influence on why he creates fierce and conversational works of art today.
