Asja Nastasijevic is an Art Historian with the major in Modern Art, involved in art writing and criticism for several years now. Art is her passion and writing about it is both work and pleasure.

Parisian gallery Itinerrance begins its 2014 exhibition season with the EXODUS exhibition by Portuguese street artist PANTONIO. Pantonio is one of the most fruitful artists of Lisabon’s street art scene with a distinctive visual style easily recognizable. It wasn’t until ‘90s when he began his unique street art.

Pantonio’s style of painting is deeply influenced by the Azores features where he comes from. It can be seen in his palette and subject matters he chooses. Dominant blue and black colors as well as expressive lightning and shading bring to mind the depths of surrounding ocean and wave motion. Various sea creatures, often half animal half human, seem to be in constant movement too, as if they are running from or after something.

Exodus

As a street artist, Pantonio enjoys playing with the urban surroundings, it is more than obvious. At the same time, the walls adorned with his designs send messages with social meaning. The exhibition at Itinerrance goes over waters carrying an indicative title Exodus, which suggests the social content of Pantonio’s new works and evokes the lyrics of one of the greatest music albums of all time. Open your eyes and look within…
