Christian Rosa: Love's Gonna Save the Day

£25.00

Product description

The first monograph on the compelling young Brazilian painter Christian Rosa features a selection of his most recent work in graphite, oil and spray paint. Born in Rio in 1982 and now living and working in Los Angeles, Rosa studied at the Academy of F ine Arts in Vienna with Daniel Richter. His current pieces on unprimed, rough, beige canvas are minimal with colorful loops, craquelures, erasures, and carelessly painted bubbles and squares. His extremely reduced repertoire is reminiscent of Cy Twombly, one of the most enduring American abstract painters. Rosa also calls on the Empire of Signs, initially determined by Roland Barthes for Twombly. In addition to Oscar Murillo and David Ostrowsky, Christian Rosa is considered a rising star in contemporary art today. An exhibition catalog out of the CFA Berlin with essay by German writer and curator Roberto Ohrt.
