Brigade is pleased to announce the opening of The Shelter of Meaning, the debut European solo exhibition by London-based painter Andrea Villalón.
Villalón’s figurative paintings and stained glass works emerge from a highly personal and transformative exploration of identity, representation and self-reflection in the 21st Century. Every painting is considered a self-portrait and is reflective of Villalón’s personal experience.
“I live for the moments when I feel real, aware, present, part of this world and owner of my skin. I’ve discovered that for me to be able to reach this state of harmony and synchronicity, first I have to know who I am. But whenever I paint, something unexpected and unknown reveals in front of me. It’s my subconscious sublimating.” - Andrea Villalón
