On November 30th Sarri 12 Gallery will be hosting the first solo show of Naip_N_Grams,«Curving the World». The show will be on view until January 15th. In his first solo exhibition, Dimitris Naiplis (N_Grams) presents a compilation of his twenty-year discourse in the realm of StreetArt. With a body of work that abstractly links the phenomena of urban street art with the vastness of the universe at large, his pieces document the repetitive choreography of deliberate acts, commonly dismissed as chaos.
He has presented his artistic work in numerous group shows within Greece and cultural festivals around the world. N_Grams started with graffiti back in 1993, with his former tag of “Naip” used only in Ptolemaida, when graffiti in Greece was still in a very early stage.
Street art, from now and then, is his main (but not the only one) creative field, where his ideas become reality. Always attracted by the streets, the direct communication and the unlimited possibilities that public space can offer to a creator, he is created public artworks, unstoppable and with awareness. His main purpose as an artist is the continuous creativity and evolution.
In the last years, he experimented with several materials including, newspapers, structure and constraction materials, fabric, spays, wood and the material list always renewed.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The spray can become an identifiable and relatable symbol of the street artist. Dissected, the world within can reveals the pressures that motivate it to explode and transform the world beyond it. A philosophical exploration of a different theme, the morphology of materials and their transformative behaviors are explored: there is an innate connection between all things in the material world, regardless of scale and form. All matter is quintessentially of the same matter, and so the identity of materials are not bound to the current state of their existence. Fluidities in interpretation and context suggest a freedom to reshape the path ahead: curving the world away from where it may be headed.
