Andrey Kasay – Silkscreen print€150.00
VACATION Alarm goes off at 8 am, a splash of cold water in the face to wake up. Breakfast, the subway, work. Colleagues, the wife, kids, the home. Need to sleep. A loan, a mortgage, a debt delinquency, a new smartphone. It was wise that I didn’t let them to get a dog. A traffic jam, nasty weather, don’t forget to get to the supermarket. Just let Saturday come. The shopping mall, an old friend, a couple of beers, the kitchen, Monday. It’s just a month before my vacation. I’ll be lying on a chaise, going for breakfast and getting suntan near a pool. All inclusive. An excursion, pyramids or castles—actually it doesn’t matter. A gift shop. Lunch and a couple of free cocktails. The sun is glistening on the sea just as in the travel agency poster. All inclusive. It's so nice that it’s possible to buy a sunset! But do you really need it when you have a TV? Andrey Kasay is a Russian visual artist based in Moscow. His metaphoric, surreal and crazy illustrations and animated videos are based on a satiric look at contemporary society. Since 2010 he took part in various group exhibitions and had solo shows in Europe, Asia, North and South America. He worked with brands like MTV, Nike, Red Bull, CNN, Washington Post, New Yorker, Adidas; and was featured by VICE, WIRED, Juxtapoz and It's Nice That.
ZZZZZZZZZZ – André Ruivo€20.00
In these fifty-two drawings, all but the cover one in black, a continuous outline defines the characters that are, in the majority of cases, the only elements of the composition. If, on the one hand, the almost geometrical linearity of these drawings draws them closer to cartoons; on the other hand, this simplification shows the interior dispositions of the figures and their bodies movements. Absorbed, closed in on themselves, asleep or enraptured, the figures represent the singularity of the states of mind. It is during these moments they escape the world and, simultaneously, sometimes fall into sleep; on other occasions, they are held, intertwined by their peers, in a mutual drifting dance.
