RETNA on MoCAtv ‘Art in the Streets’ Series

RETNA rappresenta senza dubbio uno degli artisti più importanti a livello internazionale grazie ad un incredibile stile personale costituito da un lettering moderno in netto contrasto con la scrittura tipica che caratterizza il movimento.

RETNA is a valiant and innovative unifier of culture. Through his uniquely curated alphabet of old english, hebrew, arab, asian and other calligraphy Retna has created his own universal text by which to translate his emotions, dreams, and poetry. He is also a kind and generous artist whose utmost goal is to share his work and put a smile on the face of those who enjoy and understand his dense rhythmic structures. As gallery owner Michael Kohn notes Retna is “Frans Kline meets Keith Haring,” sophisticated yet deeply rooted in the traditions of the street art crews Retna either ran or became member to from the late 1980’s til today. He has been featured in numerous museum exhibitions including MOCA’s own Art in The Streets, which in 2011 was well attended and lauded as a great testament to how far Graffiti and Street Art have come in the last 40 years.

Le telecamere di MoCATV per la serie ‘Art in the Streets’, composta da una serie di video sui migliori esponenti artisti a livello internazionale, ci danno la possibilità di capire meglio l’artista e soprattutto l’uomo che si nasconde dietro lo psedudonimo RETNA.
Un racconto nel quale verranno toccati diversi ed importanti concetti come il suo background, l’origine del suo nome e l’evoluzione che nel corso degli anni ha attraversato lo stile dell’artista portandolo dalla strada alla galleria.
Da vedere assolutamente.
