Street Art: POPular GGT exhibition 10 – 25 May 2013
Salad Days

Subway Gallery is delighted to host POPular, GGT’s first solo exhibition in the UK, an Italian treat not to be missed.

GGT artistic journey begins in 1990 as an underground cartoonist in Milan, his colourful and ironically subversive work embraces all areas of the visual arts: painting, drawing, printing, 3D, filmaking, animation, comics, murals, design and VJing.

Rather than simplify, thanks to technology and innovative communication formats, our lives are marked by unnecessary superstructures and excessive facets from a myriad of signs and information. The most simple things become complex and are experienced with less pleasure and awareness.

GGT comments and reacts to this, his style is simple and direct, based on the use of solid colours, outlined by bold sharp lines. Equally clear are the elements of his imagery, universal icons like hearts, monsters, crowns, bombs, televisions and halos. This deliberate formal simplicity conveys underlying messages through a greater complexity of content. Each artwork by GGT can be read at different levels, allowing it to be approached by anyone, regardless of age, gender, background, so realizing GGT‘s main goal.
