Recently opened 1963 Gallery in London proudly presents the first solo exhibition of Italian based artist SKAN. ‘False Memories’ centers around the psychological phenomenon of people recalling memories of events that did not actually occured. SKAN depicts this phenomenon by a distortion of the human form.
Urban artist SKAN started painting on the streets from the early age of 13 years. He studied product and graphic design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. He is influenced by old masters such as Rembrandt, Bacon and Rauschenberg. His work shows that he uses the technique of aerosol; spray combined with acrylic and oil colours. To properly give expression to his concept he prefers to work on big walls but also works on canvas and paper.
‘False Memories’ is inspired by a phenomenon of the human psyche. False memories occur when the mind combines parts of events or dreams resulting in an unrealistic representation of reality. SKAN graciously depicts this phenomenon by a distorted composition of the human form.
