PRESS RELEASE

MASSIMODECARLO Pièce Unique is pleased to present Walking Together by Ferrari Sheppard.

This three-day-only presentation from Thursday November 17th to Saturday 19th is an echo to the artist’s first solo exhibition in Europe, Tremendous, opening at MASSIMODECARLO London on the same day.

Both exhibitions expand on Sheppard’s ongoing exploration into memorialising and honouring the beauty and delicacy of the human experience.

Through poetic brushstrokes and brilliant gold accents, the work presented at Pièce Unique quietly yet defiantly radiates within the space. Walking Together shows the artist’s exploration of the natural world as a background for his trademark organic figures, rendered in acrylic and charcoal and elaborated with 24-karat gold leaf.

Anchored in intimacy and domesticity, Walking Together depicts a moment of love and leisure, scanning the human condition through the lens of the subconscious to share moments of sublime contemplation with the viewer.

法拉利·谢波特1983年生于芝加哥,现工作居住在洛杉矶。谢波特塑造的人物从线条的张力中浮现,其画面像是抽象与具象的不断拉扯。谢波特画中的人物形象是对美国及世界上所有黑人人种的赞美和致敬。艺术家往往会象征性地在作品中加入金箔,并参考早期文艺复兴和街头文化的符号。


法拉利·谢波特曾在非洲生活多年,将坦桑尼亚、埃塞俄比亚和南非部分地区视为家乡。谢波特除了作为画家,也是作家、摄影师、活动家和唱片制作人。尽管谢波特已在音乐行业取得成功,他仍首先将自己称为视觉艺术家。


谢波特在芝加哥艺术学院获得优异奖和总统奖学金毕业后,曾担任记者,采访过M.I.A., Little Dragon, Earl Sweatshirt, 和 Erykah Badu等艺术家。其艺术创作在许多方面取得进步,从具象现实主义到混合抽象,常使用金箔以丰富作品的视觉效果,捕捉光线并突出它在作品中的存在感。自此以后,谢波特的作品经常在洛杉矶、巴黎、纽约、伦敦和布鲁塞尔等城市展出。
