′′ A Matter of Form ", a matter of form, wants to ironically focus on the diversity of the three proposed styles, a wide and concrete view of urban abstractism. In all exhibited works, specifically made for the exhibition, shapes and geometries are built and reworked according to an abstraction process that can create a dialogue between geometric motifs and the compositional surface of the canvas. In the works of the three artists there is a perfect balance between form compression and minimalism, capable of generating surprising effects of depth and dynamism.

Jan Kal bb (Prague, 1978) is one of the most important authors of geometric and urban international abstractism. In 2018 the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens in Florida dedicated a retrospective entitled ′′ Soul of Graffiti ", with a focus on sculpture. In 2017 in Krakow, Poland, his works are exhibited through the public project Abstract Forum, along with those of other great names such as Nelio, Moneyless and Remi Rough among others, offering a wide look at the current evolution of art abstract urban urban. In the same year Magma gallery presents his first personal in Italy, entitled ′′ Zooom ".

In 2011, after taking part in the first ′′ Biennal de Graffiti Fine Art ′′ at the MUBE Museum in San Paolo, Brazil, he exhibited at the MASP museum in the same city.
