It is our privilege to invite you to attend “ÉTRANGERS” an art exhibition by Gareth Maguire and Ugo Nonis at the Chungking Studio in Chinatown, LA.
This show is a rare opportunity to see the collision of artistic styles of two internationally recognized artists bringing their latest creations
together for your pleasure at a one night only event at the Chungking Studio.
French artist Nonis’s passion for curves and shapes are highlighted throughout this body of work. Mostly inspired by early 90’s video games visuals, Ugo’s work is based on the simplification of form to connect with his emotions and the world. At times depicted in soft monotones and other times vivid colors, the current compositions are layered with stories. The curves, abstracted shapes, layers of color and symbols combine together to create a truly unforgettable finished product.
Irish artist Maguire works primarily in neo-expressionist style paintings and prints with a focus on social dichotomies that range from simple and humorous to insightful and highly provocative. The work is punctuated with phrases and doodles from his daughters, to poetry and words from his favorite authors. Colorful yet blacker than black, unique yet familiar Maguire’s work is truly a unification of the obscure and the obvious.
