About the Exhibition: “Ethereal Icons”  aims to showcase the unique creativity of Teiji Hayama by unveiling a new body of ground breaking works. Hayama's mainly greyscale paintings depict oddly distorted portraits with bored exhausted faces and iconic motley objects, inspired by old celebrities and other vintage symbols, always unified by the highest level of popularity. These glamorous models are ironically reimagined in an extra contemporary, but suspended, time frame by setting them in a sort of Social media mannerism and turning them into vintage influencers, confusing the visitor on his mass culture knowledge. With these premise the viewer is now ready to be thrown in a timeless and unique journey across  the development of Pop imagery, accompanied by a multicolor Marylin Monroe, holding a Spalding basketball.
