Opening Saturday, September 2nd, from 6PM - 10PM

On view through Saturday, September 23rd

Vertical Gallery is proud to present the first USA solo exhibition from Brazilian artist Alex Senna. The exhibition “Anamnesis” is September 2 – 23, 2017, with an opening reception with the artist on Saturday, September 2, 6:00-10:00pm.

Alex Senna (b. 1982) is an artist and illustrator from Sao Paulo. He is widely known for his expressive murals of lanky characters that usually revolve around love, romance and friendship that bring an overwhelming softness to their grey urban surroundings. A self-taught artist inspired by creatives such as Speto, Vitché, Twist, Ziraldo, Walt Disney and Will Eisner, Senna combines illustration, comics, and graffiti from the 1990’s into a playful poetic narrative.

The exhibition Anamnesis features all new paintings and mixed-media work inspired by a romantic, melancholic dialogue with its viewer and surroundings – revealing everyday social and personal stories with grace and humor.

Alex has exhibited and painted murals in Brazil, England, Italy, South Korea, Russia, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, and Spain.
