"In Finale Bass, the abstract geometries that characterize my work are always the result of the visual interpretation of the music that motivates my creative action: techno, and more specifically Detroit techno. An abstract, fascinating techno which originates and evolves... Detroit.This musical style, made from textures, makes my interpretations compose music through gesture, the very act of painting.

Each of them is the launching of an accurate, final line which arises in a visceral way. Composing a piece of work in which no line has privilege over the others, any colour prevails over others. The achievement is thereby to generate harmonic and coherent work from the purely expressive. The surface isn't divided into coordinates, there isn't a foreseen composition. It is the piece of work itself that takes its own rhythm, its own voice. Every gesture builds a line, each set of lines forms a sound, a rhythm. And it is the rhythm of each work what I listen to and paint. It tells me what line follows, what colour is needed." - Kenor


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Not many graffiti artists like to paint the streets in the nude. But Kenor is not just any graffiti artist. A self-confessed extraterrestrial, a born performer, Kenor’s organic, kaleidoscopic productions are geometric representations of sound and movement, visual interpretations of music and dance in two-dimensional form. Whilst the production of art must always be understood as a performative act then, Kenor’s images are saturated with this corporeal trace, artefactual remnants of his burning energy. Their multicolored, effervescent hues, their fluid, protean contours, mean we are forced to enter into, to travel into his paintings, to travel within his “abstract architecture”, his architecture “floating in the cosmos

ABOUT Kenor:
"Not many graffiti artists like to paint the streets in the nude. But Kenor is not just any graffiti artist. A self-confessed extraterrestrial, a born performer, Kenor’s organic, kaleidoscopic productions are geometric representations of sound and movement, visual interpretations of music and dance in two-dimensional form. Whilst the production of art must always be understood as a performative act then, Kenor’s images are saturated with this corporeal trace, artefactual remnants of his burning energy. Their multicolored, effervescent hues, their fluid, protean contours, mean we are forced to enter into, to travel into his paintings, to travel within his “abstract architecture”, his architecture “floating in the cosmos”.

Up until 2000, Kenor was focussed on more traditional urban art, obsessed with typography, logos, and textual experimentation. Yet as the Barcelona movement gathered pace, Kenor found himself wrapped up within the changes, forming designs which functioned as “parallel worlds, dreams, hopes, illusions, questions, options and exits”. His urge to transform the city, to counteract the ever encroaching grey with a wealth of colour, has been one which connects these two phases in his career however, an irrepressible urge to “decorate the dead cities”, to make the street a “gallery for everyone”. What thus moves him is the texture of the city, the “boundaries”, the “abandoned, damaged, worn” parts of the street. These sites call him, seduce him, they necessitate repair, resuscitation, reanimation. Kenor has thus become something of a spokesperson (through both his words and images) against the increasing commodification, the greyification of Barcelona, a spokesperson against the new laws which have come to repress so much of the cities previously active street-life. From skateboarding to performance art, break-dancing to busking, street practices have been curtailed whilst the city still attempts to market itself through its liberal, cultural heritage: “They made their own city, and their evolution goes the way they choose, yet it also contaminates the future, keeping marks for another kind of culture in our streets…They want to promote only for their interest. They support for a day the same people they punish to win the sympathy of the young people”.

Despite this, Kenor has continued to produce, to revivify the city, his works increasing to a now monumental size, covering walls all over the world. Yet he has also moved into new realms, not only installatory and sculptural, but a deeper progression into video and performance art. Films such as “Floating Points”, “Dentro de mi”, and in particular "Cualquier lugar, un dia cualquiera", more readily display the connection between dance and inscription, the choreography of the image. Like a living organism, Kenor thus simply wants his work to keep constantly evolving, to “re-create spaces of freedom”, submitting the viewer to “endless options”. Whatever medium he works within then, he wants the recipient of the image to be a “free player”, a player “able to choose and imagine a new dimension that allows it to grow”, one unrestricted by the image, captured by infinite possibilities of the line." - Mapping The City: Kenor Artist Profile
