Group show “LOVELY PEOPLE” Natalia Rak, Pixelpancho, Sokar Uno.Düsseldorf

April 08, 2016 to May 06, 2016

Pretty Portal presents a collective show with works that focus on human behaviour. On display are paintings and drawings by Natalia Rak, Pixelpancho and Sokar Uno.
In the show, the artists look behind the facade of human being and present us “Lovely people”.

Pixelpancho´s topic is the incarnation of machines, or vice versa, the transformation from human to robot-like creatures. Puppet like people baring their interior mechanics.
Natalia Rak takes us on a rollercoaster of emotions. With bright colors, she tells stories of precipices, ecstasy, fear and romance.
In Sokar Uno’s works solid contours blur. He shows his protagonists in states of confusion and alienation.

Natalia Rak’s beautiful murals show up all around the world. The Polish artist’s colours glow with an intensity that’s a fresh breath to the streetart scene. Her artworks combine a focus on female imagery and wonderful compositions.
Born in 1986, this young female artist is fast being recognized in Polish contemporary art circles. She has been featured at „Walk and Talk Festival“ on Madeira Island, „No Name Festival“ in France, „Stroke Art Fair“ and „Art Whino“ just to name a few.
Last year she won the „Artbattles” in New York. Her mural „The legend of giants“ was voted as one of the Top5 urban art pieces created in 2013, next to artworks from Banksy and JR.

Berlin based artist Sokar Uno is one of the great talents of the East German graffiti scene.
We noticed the sensitive work by the illustrator and restorer, who grew up with the spray can, already a while ago. At least since his solo show “Depth Off Loneliness” in New York, he has now impressively entered international territory.
In his work, Sokar Uno concerns with propagating loneliness of our urban existence – Together alone! Socially acceptable individualists scourged by the city in which we live and certainly hangoverish left in the role of our lives. Sokar Uno provokes the deceleration with the usual surreal representation of his protagonists in familiar situations.

Opening reception : 08.04.2016, 7 – 10pm
