Chashama is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings, sculptures, and functional sculptures by Brazilian artist Tarik Mendes in New York City. This is his first solo exhibition in New York City, focusing mostly on his prominent medium, the net screen.
Mendes’s painting will be shown along with his sculptures, functional sculptures, and a pop-up of wearable art and artsy stationery from both of his self-founded companies, TelaModa & TelaModaPrints. Simultaneously, an EP will also be released on all streaming platforms along with the exhibition.
Mendes will also be premiering his latest new venture “Tarik Functional Living” which consists of functional sculptural design pieces for all lifestyles.
Tarik Mendes (°1992, Belo Horizonte, Brazil) creates paintings, drawings, and sculptures. By emphasizing aesthetics, Mendes seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the good and the ugly of daily life. His works are notable for their textured finish and colorful nature. This is of great importance and bears witness to great craftsmanship. By applying abstraction, he considers making art a craft that is executed using clear formal rules and which should always refer to social reality. His works don’t always reference recognizable forms. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Tarik Mendes currently lives and works in NYC.
