Oil on canvas / 80×60 inches

Knife.

AxelVoid presents his new series of works called “Knife”. The Spanish/American artist opens a dialogue about how art and its duality influences people using knifes as a referential metaphor. Knives serve the purpose of a tool or a weapon, its this ambivalence that the artist underlines. Art, particularly in Wynwood, shares this dichotomy. From the economical development of the neighborhood to the gentrification that it brought. Is this hectic and frivolous mix that brings together artist, collectors, users, homeless people, the fashion industry and the consumers in this particularly confederacy of dunces.
