MION: Point of View at Pasila Urban Art Center 5.12.2019 – 18.1.2020
MION is a graffiti artist who started graffiti painting in the early 90s. His paintings are made on canvas and include views to an imaginary world, in which his visions consist of organic shapes and materials.
In MION’s paintings, the original graphic shape of the letters has lost their meaning over time, but the viewer can detect features and references to the language of the letters.
MION’s art is inspired by the experience of nature and everything living, which often leads to lengthy contemplations during the painting process. Colors and shapes begin to live their own lives on the surface, creating symbiosis with it and blurring the boundaries of reality.
The works of the Point of view exhibition were made between 2012 and 2019. As a whole, they present the evolution and branches of the artist’s style and idiom.
