After establishing himself as an innovator within the graffiti world, with a career spanning the past decade, Felipe Pantone has abandoned letterforms, embracing abstraction, and drawing influence from various disciplines such as kinetic and op art. Felipe Pantone has anchored himself as one to watch within the contemporary field.
“W3-Dimensional” takes inspiration from Teilhard de Chardin's 1950's theories, which postulated the existence of "an enveloping sphere of thought, a living tissue of consciousness, enclosing the earth and growing ever more dense." this controversial idea, known as the "noosphere," was largely forgotten until the advent of cyberspace. the internet, in its ever-growing exponential race of speed, pervasiveness, capacity, intelligence and durability, may well become the mechanical framework for the noosphere, this sphere of thought, that may bring about the evolution of human consciousness.
Pantone's quest to explore and compound all aspects of dynamism continues with “W3-Dimensional.” 3-Dimensional works on wood feature his signature ultra vibrant colors and high contrast motifs, stretching boldly beyond the boundaries of the canvas.
These will be his most refined works to date, and his mastery of his unique painting process is evident. He continues to explore new mediums and forms, with a large format installation, and sculpture pieces on display as seen at Scope Miami Beach and Delimbo, Seville.
