Latitude – David de la Mano

Poetic works, tales of travel, odysseys and exiles at Wunderkammern Milano

Lovers of Urban Art are in for a treat. From 16 November until 21 January, the Wunderkammern Milano will display Latitude, the first Italian exhibit from the Spanish artist David de la Mano, curated by Giuseppe Pizzuto.

Working as a painter, sculptor and illustrator, David de la Mano is one of the most important representatives of Urban Art. Beginning his career in the early 90s with works of Land Art (installations and sculptures in public space) before dedicating himself to Urban Art, participating in numerous international events.

Since 2008, de la Mano’s art has graced the streets of Europe in the form of evocative monochromatic depictions of journeys, movement and transformations. His murals have been focused on the idea of quests, tales of travel, odysseys, exiles, treks and collective migration.

Much of de la Mano’s work concerns man’s deepest fears, dreams and ambitions. This exhibit explores the concept of the endless pursuit of one intent, and attempts to capture the moment of its exposition, and its dissipation through repetition.

Latitude can be understood as the condition of the body on the verge of acting, the very essence of its existential force. Going beyond the geographical meaning, David de la Mano expands the concept from a specific point to an undetermined one, the transitional stage between the active and the passive.

Despite using a variety of techniques and materials, including acrylic paints, watercolours, ink and collage, the artist’s work is characterised by a minimalist style, reinforced by the monochromatic use of the colour black. A selection of medium- and large-sized canvas paintings will be put on display in the exhibit, as well as some paper sketches. This is one exhibit not to be missed!

Please note: A mural workshop for students, Within the Wall, will be run by the artist in collaboration with the Milan Cervantes Institute before the exhibit.
