ICONES – Number 1 contains a selection of the kind of ink drawings CONE is well known for. Selfies, tributes and ridiculous confessions are their subjects. The self portraits are a serial work with its conceptual roots in his graffiti background. Instead of styles or tags he spreads his variations of the bearded man with glasses and experiments with that image in a for- mal as well as autobiographical manner. Using his own character enables him to make these works a bit more personal while at the same time exploring the depths of his consciousness and phantasies. The second part of his show contains a number of tribute drawings
focusing on personalities he is impressed by in some way, featuring not only musicians, writers and scientists, but also dubious characters from the shallow waters of tabloid journalism.
OPENING: MAY 22ND 2014, 7PM
THE EXHIBITION WILL RUN UNTIL JUNE 19TH 2014.
