The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.
"The pieces are part of my upcoming show, "Liberdade Abstrata" or in English, Abstract Freedom. The show is composed of birds and geometric designs.
The whole idea is based on my childhood when my house in Brazil was full of birds in cages, a common thing in Brazil. My father had several types of birds and he kept them all in cages that he built with his own hands. I was never able to understand why these beautiful creatures with wings made to fly should be locked up in a cage." - Arlin
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
is Brazilian, based in Detroit, Michigan. He is 30 years old and was born in the city of Tatui, in the countryside of Sao Paulo. As a child, he loved to play with wood blocks, putting things together and then dismantling them again in a small woodshed where his father passed his time making birdcages and other small objects with wood.
As a teenager, specifically at the end of 1999, Arlin began with graffiti, painting trains in his neighborhood. In 2007, he graduated with a degree in industrial design. In 2008, when he moved to Sao Paulo, he combined this passion for art with design, while he worked as an art director in various advertising agencies.
Quickly, Arlin began to piece together a type of deconstructionism, inspired by his childhood in the little woodshed. He created a very distinct style, giving life to his abstract creations that seem to be emerging from a digital work.
Beyond just painting in the streets, the artist moved toward fine arts and began to study new possibilities. Each time in a more elaborate form, animals are Arlin’s principal theme, creating a species of synthetic nature fragmented by the influence of the modern technological world.
Today, in addition to canvasses, his elaborate paintings are executed in large scale around the entire world, bringing a little more of color to city walls.
