In TEMPLE OF LIGHT AkaCorleone presents us with the opportunity to witness and participate in the launch of a new cult. Oscillating between the abyss of darkness and the light-driven forces of idealism, the works presented in TEMPLE OF LIGHT materialize an act of performative faith, challenging us to look both out and inside ourselves to reach an ultimate conclusion. Whether or not we find it is up to us.
AkaCorleone is a visual artist of Portuguese and Swiss descent who started out as a graffiti writer in the underworld of his native Lisbon. A compulsive drawer, he is known today for his dexterity in using colours, typography, characters, and refined forms which he blends to achieve eye-catching compositions imbued with originality and an all-pervasive humour.
