The new Felipe Pantone’s kinetic sculpture Substractive Variability Manipulable 3 is the symbiosis of both theory of color and the search of the oeuvre’s manipulable essence, namely, the viewer’s intervention in the final artwork. Being these, the two major paths of Pantone’s investigation at the moment.
Felipe Pantone´s artwork is not based on color, on the contrary, it is driven to explore color in its pure essence; to be color itself. By consistently touring every nook of substractive colors and their behavior when affected by dynamism, Pantone creates this sculpture, which emerges as the delicate and balanced playground of substractive variability and transformation and which he exposes to the mercy of the viewer’s intervention.
The sculpture, limited to just 50 copies, is signed and numbered by Felipe Pantone himself. The edition has been completely created and produced at Felipe Pantone’ Studio in Valencia, Spain after a long break due to the current situation.
Felipe Pantone (1986), is an Argentinian-born contemporary and graffiti artist who grew up in Spain. Active in the fields of kinetic art, installations, graffiti and design, his style is characterised by the use of bold colours, geometric patterns and Op art elements. Straddling conventional graffiti, typography and abstraction, his work fuses bold elements of graphic design with highly-evolved geometric shapes to create an ultra-modern aesthetic which complements and reacts to the stark modernity of our cityscapes. Besides painting walls, he has been showcasing his work in galleries and institutions around the world since 2006.
