Art Shows 19th November

RareKind presents the first London solo show by Italian graffiti artist, Hunto.
Best known for his cubist influenced canvases and delicate line drawings, Hunto introduces a unique quality to the graffiti art scene, marrying non-conformist 20th century art characteristics to the equally non-conformist medium of graffiti art.
The London show, hosted by RareKind, is a culmination of his canvas, sketch, screen print and sculptural work, with a strong theme based around the human figure and that most beguiling of subjects, sex.
Born in Brindisi, South Italy in 1982, Hunto started his career as a graffiti artist in 1996 and explored many themes and painting genres. Massively inspired by the work of Picasso and Braque, he honed his style to give a retro twist to graffiti art and thus, his characters and designs became well known and loved on the streets of Italy.
Now for the first time in London, Hunto demonstrates with this stunning new show that Graffiti art has a validity and adaptability, which never ceases to surprise and delight.
