'Ghosts again', new exhibition by Nano Abia in Delimbo gallery

'Ghosts Again'is the evocative and intriguing title of the exhibition opened at Delimbo Gallery by the internationally renowned Galician artist, Nano Abia (Vigo, 1978), also known as Nano 4814, which is open to the public until June 22.

The exhibition, the third that this artist does in the Delimbo space, brings together six paintings made with a very special technique of the artist in which he mixes the digital appearance with the finish typical of a painter, in addition to several sculptural installations with pieces made of resin.

Also known as Nano 4814, This painter's work is intuitive and multidisciplinary. (painting, sculpture, installation or mural) sometimes even combines several techniques in the same work.

His dynamic compositions start from figuration and anthropomorphic shapes to almost abstract images. Superimposed or fused bodies mixing in a precarious equilibrium. In his latest works the image is distorted, because it tends to further decompose the human figure and reduce it to basic parts such as noses, mouths or eyes that enhance that sense of abstraction.

His paintings are created in almost dream-like environments, often combined with recurring symbols: brick walls, leaking wire fences, broken wooden palisades… Objects that encourage intrusion and transgression, such as masks. Barriers that suggest and hide a truth, provide clues but avoid the painted (or sculpted) reality. An ambiguity that is perhaps the most defining characteristic of his work.

After graduating in Fine Arts from the University of Pontevedra, Nano Avia made a short training stay in London, where she studied schools such as Saint Martins School of Arts or the London College of Printing. In 2004 he moved to Madrid to develop his artistic work and began exhibiting in galleries and institutions both in Spain and abroad. Among the many projects in which he has participated, we can highlight Planet Prozess in Berlin, the Urbanitas exhibition at the MARCO in Vigo and Street Art at the Tate Modern in London, or more recently, in 2016, at Crossing Borders/Crossing Boundaries in under more the SAM Museum in Saint Petersburg or Venturing Beyond at Sommerset House in London, or his latest public sculpture with its characteristic circle of balloons in Madrid.
