Avenue des Arts is honored to present “Sweet Life”, a solo exhibition by the artist PEZ. Opening on April 20th, the exhibition will feature more than 20 works from the artist, including original canvases, sculptures, 1 print release.
« Sweet Life »: a first retrospective that encompasses the four ages of life through my favourite series.
It all starts with the Dream Series which evokes childhood in a satiric way, at the crossroads of black humour and offbeat daydreams. The Distroy Series, with its references to pop culture and video games heroes, is intended as a snapshot of adolescence. The “Green pieces” then take you into adulthood, anticipating a disenchanted world and questioning our ecological legacy. Finally, the Pixel Series concludes this exhibition. The material world disaggregates into a cloud of pixels and becomes abstract, symbolizing the journey to death.
