Chromodynamica for Singapore
(b. Argentina, 1986)
Felipe Pantone’s style is easily identifiable with strong contrasts of black and white, interwoven with segments of kaleidoscopic colour. Mentioned in the title, ‘chromodynamica’ is associated with a process where opposing particles interact and bind - as demonstrated by Pantone’s habitual compositions, incorporating solid and fluid forms with shades of black and graphic colours. His work process generally takes form on a computer and, although he typically paints on two-dimensional surfaces of canvas and wood, he has expanded his practice to include sculptures. Pantone has been painting on the streets for almost two decades, and identifies with both street and kinetic art. His exhibitions include Art from the Streets at ArtScience Museum, Singapore (2018), Artifact to Human Communication (2017) at Underdogs Gallery, Portugal; Planned Iridescence (2017) at GR Gallery, New York and Data Somersault (2016) at StolenSpace Gallery, London.
