This RUN comes signed by Mateo and with a Letter of Provenance from 1XRUN.
Mateo is a French artist based in Montreal. He is best known for his baroque street art inspired by ornaments from around the world, as well as for his striking oriental carpet paintings, resulting in a mix of urban art with the heritage of ancient cultures.
The art of Mateo questions the perception and impact of traditional and ancient wisdom in our western societies nowadays. His humanistic approach proposes to reconnect with fundamental inspirations, a bridge to our deep origins as well as a romanticism erased in our contemporary society.
His iconic painted traditional carpets featuring striking feminine features adorned with ancient motifs as well as spiritual metaphors, forces us to question our cultural identity and universal consciousness in a relentless system that pushes for uniformity in contemporary mass culture.
