Tidewater brings the work of visual artists Memo Vithana and Nico Miyakawa to Berlin, at the heart of Europe’s art scene.
Tidewater is a selection of works about the exploration of current cultures and lifestyles. The pieces will be displayed to visually entertain and mentally involve the viewer; to stimulate thinking, reflection and discussion.
Nico’s works – a series of doodle-style drawings – are a visual journal depicting his personal growth and development. Inspired by experiences and feelings – some his own, some of others – Nico places all the elements of a story in a busy composition of minimal line-drawings. In his works there is a recurring exploration of the relationship between past, present and future.
Memo’s work encompasses different styles, due to his belief that experimenting with new methods and mediums allows one to explore the plains of one´s imagination more deeply. this art offers an escape and a world in which he can vent his emotions and challenge his perception of reality. Most of this artworks have a subtle reflection on today´s society and seek to implement a “voice” for those most silenced in our world with the goal of having them echo on the streets, the screen or the gallery walls.
