The Unearthly Paintings

July 12 – August 9, 2014

In his third solo exhibition with White Walls, Niels Meulman (Shoe) expands on his philosophical musings on existence, outer space and science through a new series of typographical paintings.

These majestic paintings are a continuation of the signature style Shoe is best known for: a medieval style of “Calligraffiti” in which he uses the prefix, “un” as a symbol of reversal and words as images to express abstract ideas. However, in this body of work, Shoe also introduces new aspects such as technologically advanced paint and a non-linear writing order.

Violet Skull

by Jacky Tsai,

The floral skull stems from evil and death, and represents fertility. A Pythagorean emblem of life and peace in a fertile ground which full of flowers, the ground of a rising path with fork roads to Good and Evil of the human society.

This work is a tribute to the legendary fashion designer Alexander McQueen.
