Whatever your personal angle on how to define this particular term might be, it definitely happens just once in a blue moon to discover a talent whose vision is so peculiar and overall distinctive at an early stage already, as the one Berlin-based artist Vermibus is bringing to the table.
Since the first collaboration between Vermibus and OPEN WALLS Gallery in 2012, the enigmatic artist certainly has stepped up his game in terms of execution and presence, even though the instruments he’s using remain the very same: solvent, paper and a trusted skeleton key. Within the last four years Vermibus did more than 600 interventions in public spaces worldwide, in which he’s challenging the audience by raising questions about value, significance and the perception of beauty through his signature style - proving that the art of adbusting can easily still imply subversiveness transformed by an intact social conscious, instead of being a simple vanity show.
If there’s a name strongly connected to the attitude and aesthetics OPEN WALLS Gallery is known for, then it certainly must be the one of Vermibus, as the numerous successful collaborations on group shows and art fairs in the past competently proved. Therefore it is kind of surprising all the more that “Unveiling Beauty“ actually presents the first official solo show of Vermibus at OPEN WALLS Gallery, which introduces more than 30 different works - ranging from exclusive pieces produced for this particular show to almost forgotten treasures from their archives - of this outstanding artist to the Berlin audience.
“Unveiling Beauty“ is a visual manifest about removing all these superficial layers life is lulling you with, showing that sometimes the radical act of deconstruction is a necessary one to let true beauty reign supreme again.
The artist will be present at the vernissage.
