Herbert Baglione | Video Completo "The Run Up"
Texto retirado da Juxtapoz :
Herbert Baglione was recently interviewed in his native São Paulo, Brazil from The Run UP series by Fifty24SF Gallery and Upper Playground. The video is just shy of eight minutes, but this short packs a huge punch in that time, as Baglione talks about his past, his perception of the world, the deeper meaning behind his aesthetic, and why he sees chaos as inherently void.
“When you start to realize the immensity of things and their value, like the relationship between the sand and water, the sea, the ocean itself, you see that everything that you do, your work, are such small things,” the painter muses. “There isn’t a reason why there should be this tension between egos…this thing that exists in the graffiti world.”
Baglione continues, “I have two aims when I work: to prevent conflict on one hand but also seeking to create new ones.” If you’re lucky enough to be in London this weekend, drop any previous plans and hit up Baglione’s solo exhibit Two Broken Knees at Lazarides Gallery on Greek Street, which will remain on view from November 21 - December 20, 2008.
