Felipe Pantone, considered one of the greatest figures of street art, is bringing his latest work to China for the very first time. Deeply influenced by the color research of Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz Diez, he integrates geometric patterns with bold and metallic colors to create a mesmerizing new space.

Vice magazine's November 2018 issue noted "the divisions between geometric patterns and gradients are so effortlessly blended that the larger patterns seem created with digitization rather than with two hands." Forbes magazine regarded Pantone's aesthetic as "the intersection of Blade Runner and Photoshop" for its concepts of dynamism, transformation and movement.

In his work, Pantone questions the society in which we live and its propensity to place new technology at the center of our daily lives. "I try to convey the world in which we live: the circulation, the flow of information and the cultural exchanges," the artist said. "I think my job belongs to the present. I'm an internet kid."
