Friends // Miaz Brothers
Italian duo who create large-format canvases using spray paint.
The Antimatter Series, as their body of work is known, incorporates a diverse and refreshing range of subjects. While they employ aerosol paints, the Miaz Brothers have never been street artists nor are they ever likely to start. "We use it to represent the fact that we are composed of infinite particles in continuous evolution," they say, "which change in tandem with the complex reality that surrounds us." The spray paint produces the blurred effect that defines the duo’s work: "dematerialising the lines, we gain a substantial indetermination of the picture. This skips any immediate reaction and provokes the viewer to use mnemonic associations instead for their own personal visual information encoding."
