INTERCEPTION BERLIN EPISODE 02 | LUGOSIS & STRATO

Dear art lovers,

the city of Milan was literally the cradle from where, in the 1990s, twin brothers LUGOSIS & STRATOS began their remarkable career, already drawing and painting as toddlers before they’d even learned to speak. Inspired by their father himself tattooed from head to toe, they quickly took to the cans and needles that have seen their infectious style spread across trains, walls and skin far beyond their home city, into the galleries
and halls of fame of Europe’s graffiti scene.

Today, Berlin is their new home ground. LUGOSIS & STRATOS’ work is a perfect combination of letters and illustration, transforming thoughts, ideas, and social criticism into mind-blowing graffiti, illustrations and tattoos. They’ve already collaborated with several streetwear brands as the big players of the business recognize their talent. It’s only a question of time for the twins to lift their work to another level.
Watch the new episode of INTERCEPTION HERE.

All the best,
your Golden Hands Team!

ABOUT MURMURATION MAN

A vision is at the origin of this new visual approach of Sozyone, designed for the exhibition “MURMURATION MAN” at the Golden Hands Gallery.
“I grew up downtown and have always been intrigued by birdwatching. I find birds’ aesthetics and behavior often hilarious. I have seen sparrows steal chips and crumbs, pigeons with broken legs fight over a bite of plastic between two cars. Proud crows howl at swans in the large fountain to defend their little island.
When observing birds we often come across people, some, usually alone, walking in a park with a bag of stale bread and suddenly find themselves surrounded by the hundreds of hungry birds who have recognised the bag.
One evening, I saw a man feeding all the pigeons and sparrows of the aera, he was standing in the middle of a circle, his bag appeared to contain an entire bakery. Then I saw a dog also watching the scene from afar make up his mind and walk towards the carpet of doves. His belly touched the ground as slowly, step by step he approached until he launched at the feast. The man was unaware until it was too late. In a second he was lost among the chaotic flailing of wings, feathers, sand and bread.
The band of pigeons flew into a whirlwind slapping at their provider in an impressive airborne ballet. Then a sublime phenomenon happened. The birds flying freely danced to compose a surreal murmuration creating the portrait of Marius Jacob, the greatest of anarchists. A second, it only lasted an instant but he was there in front of me.
And then, nothing, just the old man shaking his lousy jacket.”

ABOUT PABLO SOZYONE GONZALEZ

Pablo Sozyone Gonzalez has been working on the line, the form and the rhythm for over 25 years.

Growing up in modest circumstances, fleeing Franco’s dictatorship, his autonomous thinking developed to do what he wants and where he wants – in his hometown of Brussels. In 1988, at the age of 15, Sozyone meets his artistic partner Smimooz, they start tagging everything and everyone, rhyming and launching the hip-hop trio “De Puta Madre”. In 2004, Sozyone ventures into the galleries and presents “One Million Murders” (Alice Gallery). Between 2003 and 2013, he focuses on a single concept: ‘La Voyoucratie’ (the gangstacracy), portraying the most beautiful specimens of the ‘milieu’: the French anarchists on bicycles or in BMW’s, the German terrorists of the 70’s, the old hangovers on the docks of Marseille, the red Spaniards, the street gangs of New York, the thieves in white gloves of Place Vendôme….
A romantic universe flavored with poppies and gunpowder, where the profile would have a broken nose and grim eyes. In 2013, Sozyone and Jaba Mathieu embark on a 2-year adventure. Between Singapore, Los Angeles and Valencia, they will develop, write and finish “ENEMIES,” an intergalactic graphic novel with 142 pages of hardcover. (Ankama Editions, oct. 2015)
In 2015, Sozyone opens a new chapter: ‘The End of Times’ A reckless universe where peaceful characters wander en masse, aimless but alive in the center of a cold city, awaiting a terrorist attack or a destructive wave, phone in hand, hoping to immortalize the moment, whatever it may be. The series “The End” describes these pre-apocalypse moments.

“When I was 9 years old, I thought about death all the time, I waited for the catastrophe, the accident, the atomic bomb that would blow up the city, I imagined a lava flow, I saw myself walking through the ruins of the Rue Royale and the mangled bodies of my schoolmates. I had seen a documentary about Hiroshima and told myself that they must have seen the end of the world, the end of humanity, the end of the universe…. But they hadn’t seen it coming. I paint those few moments before the end, the last second, that precise moment when man, man is in harmony with the cosmos.” Interview between Sozyone Gonzalez and Arturo Tortura

Sozyone finds inspiration for his works in the urban, the streets of the big city and the crook milieu. Thus, masculine portraits of a somber character are often the subject of his works, as well as bird motifs, as a reference to the thieving magpie. In the course of his creative process has crystallized its own technique, with which he gives his subtle art the appropriate expression. For the works on canvas, he uses acrylic paints that are sprayed or applied with a brush in a layering process. Drawings, collages of cut-outs and prints, and sculptures in bronze and wood complement his exhibitions. His works all follow their own rhythm, which is key to his flow. The result is intense works full of contrasts that harmonize within themselves.
