Tomorrow on our Instagram channel and on the 2501 channel there will be the last episode of Art is Resistance, the charity project that we have raised to support the Lombardy region in the health emergency caused by Covid-19.
All proceeds from the auctions, which will remain active until next Friday, May 8th, will be donated to Lombardy for the extraordinary purchase of masks, protective suits, disinfectants and equipment needed by health facilities, doctors, nurses and staff to better treat the sick and limit the opportunities for contagion.
As already mentioned, the last artist to take part in this project will be the Milanese artist 2501 who tomorrow, Thursday 30 April, will show you live the artistic process of the artwork that we will then put up for auction.
While you wait for tomorrow watch HERE all the auctions and make your bid to win one or more.
2501 – live on Collater.al‘s Instagram profile and his profile from 15:00 on 30.04.2020
Milan-born artist 2501 works in a wide variety of mediums, including painting, installation, sculpture, photography, and film. Embarked in a quest for blank spaces, 2501 experiments with lines, shapes and motion in free compositions that show strictness all the while breaking art codes.
At the age of 20, he settled in Sao Paulo to teach painting to shantytown children, after studying Cinema and video editing in Milan and Visual Communication at the New Bahaus University of Weimar, Germany. His multidisciplinary approach led him to take on a documentary approach which evolved toward the Nomadic Experiment project, a series of international exhibitions and a decennial digital archive focused around countercultures, communities, points of views and experiments all over the world. 2501’s site specific and socially committed work in constant dialogue with urban topography, mainly takes the form of murals, among which specific mural project carried on in Los Angeles, Miami, Sao Paulo, Milan, Roma, Detroit, Chicago, Ulan Bator, New York, Atlanta, Kiev. Always on the move due to a career that leads him to answer the calls of various art institutions and fairs around the world, he took part in numerous public art festivals like O.BRA, Living Walls, ALTrove, Art United Us, Artmossphere Biennale, Walk&Talk, Wabash Arts Corridor, Outdoor, Mural, Traffic Design, Painted the Desert Project. His art and process serve as an investigative conduit between an individual who has absorbed a number of principles from classical art and the application of them in a contemporary environment.
Utilizing an approach that can be both primitive and sophisticated, the repetition of exploratory and evaluative line work is highlighted by 2501’s sensitivity to the relationship of the exacting details of surface and applicant. Equally important are the dynamics of open air, empty spaces and established structures or derelict buildings. The symbiotic relationship between positive and negative space is always at play, as each element swaps real estate back and forth.
Thursday 30th, 2501 will be live on our Instagram profile and its staff and will work on an ad hoc artwork that, as soon as finished, will be auctioned on 32auctions where it will remain until May 8th.
