Nero Gallery

Rome - Italy

Nero Gallery presents Wood Veins, the second solo show in Rome of the French artist Veks Van Hillik from September 24 to October 29.

The exhibition represents the consolidation of the connection and evolution between the gallery and the artist. Once again Veks’ work is brought to the eternal city which has now been expanded and enriched because of the evolution and growth of the artists in the past few years due to many international exhibitions and participations in Street Art Festivals of which the latest has been the Grenoble Festival in June.

In Wood Veins, Veks underlines and expresses his strong relationship with nature and animals. The tree trunk is a returning element in the works of the exhibition, emphasizing his animals characters found in their natural habitat.
The environment is the forest with its inhabitants as the protagonists: a little bit of fantasy and a little bit of demonacy. Veks’ animals are the symbol for purity, fertility and rebirth.

The exhibition experiments with the borders between nature and fantasy, moving away from the concept of an imaginary city and making our fantasy closer to a world that we recognize taking us back to a childlike purity and primitivity and escaping from daily metropolitan chaos.
