Limited Edition Print – Matheus Chiaratti, Lunch Poems, 2020
Matheus Chiaratti, a Sao Paulo-based artist, explores shared desires, memories, and journeys through his multidisciplinary practice. Working with painting, textiles, photography, ceramics, and literature, he weaves romances, religious artefacts, and ornaments into his unique pictorial frame.
Inspired by US poet Frank O'Hara’s 1964 “Lunch Poems,” Chiaratti's "Southern Poet" delves into a personal and religious journey. This print edition portrays the book's cover, capturing the essence of the artist's experience. With deep scratches and crooked letters, it symbolizes Chiaratti's admiration and timeless understanding. Chiaratti’s notable exhibitions include Quadra, Galerie21, arte_passagem, Mana Contemporary, Palazzo Monti, Galeria Sancovsky, and Convoi.
