Black and White Paintings

Expanding on the Vinyl works, the first black and white paintings emerged in the early 2010s as artworks on canvas that connect to the texts of Giorno during this period. The series was first exhibited in 2012 in Europe, first in Thanx 4 Nothing at Faux Mouvement Centre d'Art Contemporain, then in Paintings at Galerie Almine Rech.
