Alex Senna - The Nada
DATE: 06/04/17 to 23/04/17
LOCATION: Unit 5 Gallery, The Yard, Yorkton Street, E2 8NH London
Unit 5 Gallery is proud to present 'The Nada' the debut UK solo exhibition from Brazilian artist, Alex Senna.
Living in a vibrant, multicultural country full of contradictions, Senna reduced his visual language to black and white silhouette-like characters in order to depict the much needed unity of his countrymen.
Focused on the most neglected part of society; the poor, the minorities and the needy, Senna's work often talks about solitude, love, friendship, passion, conformity and family. 'The Nada' is a phonetic play on the Portuguese expression for "you're welcome" with Nada meaning nothing, in reference to to his subjects who are often invisible in the eyes of society.
The themes covered within this body of work are the simplest yet most important in life - family, solitude and love. 18 new canvases and sculptures will be on display alongside a series of street interventions in the lead up to the opening night, 6th of April 2017.
