Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1986.
Graffiti is the medium from which Pantone begins his creative production in his childhood; after studying Fine Arts in Valencia, the artist started to consolidate a work that fuses the concerns of the street art, kinetic art and the change in technological media. Pantone's work evokes a spirit of collision between an analog past and a digitalized future, where humans and machines inevitably confuse each other in a prism of neon gradients, geometric shapes, optical patterns and irregular grids.
The creator explores how the shifting of the light spectrum affects color and repetition. In his own words: "Light and color are the very essence of visual art. Thanks to television, computers and modern lighting, our perception of light and color has changed completely." For Pantone, his works is a meditation on the ways in which we consume visual information.
Some of his more important public projects are: the murals commissioned by the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France; the mural produced for Lisbonweek in Lisbon, Portugal; the mural that deresses de facade of the Daelim Museum in Seoul, South Korea; the mural made for the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, USA; his more recent mural composed by mosaics of the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Spain; or the murals realized in two of the Tecnológico de Monterrey buildings, in Monterrey, México.
Felipe Pantone currently lives and works in Valencia, Spain.
