RAUL (1980 – )
Born in Pescara (1980) Raul lives and works between USA and Europe. He travels the world, studing different cultures at the constant research of symbolic languages, energy and meanings, that he transmit to his public through his art. He begins to develop his passion for art, painting on any material he finds in his innumerable travel. From walls to paper, from glass to plastic, from newspaper to lined notebook used in schools, anything is possible for Raul if the surface permits it. His exhibits are numerous in Italy and abroad. His first exhibit was in 2011 in Wynwood (Miami) at Gallery 212
Born in Israel, Karen Bystedt grew up between London and California, was educated between Paris and New York, and now she lives in downtown Los Angeles. Original and irreverent, she started her career by combining the objectivity of the photographic medium with her endless creativity, constantly balancing in the middle of communication and provocation. Her photos have appeared in dozens of publications, including Vanity Fair, Vogue, and People, and have been exhibited in countless museums all over the world. Over the years, many celebrities have posed for Bystedt’s camera, from actors to rock stars, to artists: Andy Warhol, photographed for the first time in 1982 in the iconic Factory, was one of her favorite subjects. Images of Warhol, lost and randomly rediscovered, appeared in the exhibition “The Lost Warhols”.
