BEYOND THE STREETS presents Felipe Pantone’s second iteration of The Graffiti Collection. Pantone’s continued interest in merging the worlds of block chain and graffiti is rooted in the importance of artistic ownership. Once an impossible capability within the scope of graffiti, through minting on the block chain any artist’s original works are protected and forever cemented in history. Pantone found his creative language originally through graffiti and today his contemporary work sits at the intersection of technology and art.

Based in Spain, Felipe Pantone is a byproduct of the technological age when kids unlocked life’s mysteries through the Internet. As a result of this prolonged screen time, he explores how the displacement of the light spectrum impacts color and repetition. Pantone evokes a spirit in his work that feels like a collision between an analog past and a digitized future, where human beings and machines will inevitably glitch alongside one another in a prism of neon gradients, geometric shapes, optical patterns, and jagged grids. Pantone utilizes modeling software in his practice which allows for 3D insights into projects, which then can be translated into frescoes, murals, paintings, and sculptures which give tactile merit to what is occurring in the digital world.
