RUN at Galleria Varsi: L'Uomo con la Coda

May 31, 2015

New body of work by the Italian artist RUN will be presented at Galleria Varsi in Rome. L'Uomo con la Coda aka The Man with the Tail exhibition is inspired by RUN’s recent return to Italy after having lived in London for several years. The central motif of the exhibition is the evolution of man kind and the artist, known for his anthropological approach, tries to answer the question how we became what we are today. The skillfulness of the artist is presented by the masterful application of bright colors and numerous details in the artworks created with the use of many different artistic styles and techniques.

Primitive Energy of L'Uomo con la Coda

L'Uomo con la Coda exhibition deals with the origin of the world and human beings. The artworks that will be presented at Galleria Varsi in Rome are vivid and complex. Main  characters are archaic individuals that preform ancient rituals often by creating symbolic poses with their interlocking bodies. The artworks are glowing with primal energy and feed on the strength brought to them by nature. Every artwork in the exhibition, whether on small canvases or on huge walls, epitomizes different parts of RUN’s personality and the artist proclaims that he is the Man with the Tail. There’s a primitive atmosphere in his images but they also portray the evolution from the prehistoric to the modern man indicating perhaps that the two are not so different after all. Although ancient the characters appear emotional and easy to relate to so the visitor can feel incredibly comfortable among all those atavistic beings.
