Eden Fine Art held the first UK exhibition for Angelo Accardi entitled MISPLACED, which opened in Mayfair on Thursday 25th October 2018.
Accardi’s latest collection continued to explore the unconscious mind in colourful, symbolic, and layered artworks, presenting a viewpoint that is full of humour, wit, and great beauty. His complex, neo-surrealist paintings and austere neoclassical sculptures connect artists, characters, and artistic styles across centuries of Art in a collection that references history while remaining contemporary.
Using contrasting references to create “opposite poles” his images use repeated presences such as the minion, the rhino, and the ostrich, to highlight the material nature and contradiction of the man who creates with so much passion, and destroys with malice and ease.
The launch event was attended by over 450 people with DJ Will Best providing the music, while aerial performers and costume characters entertained the guests.
