24 CARAT DIRT – BOOK LAUNCH – VIDEO PREVIEW
Thursday May 10 2012 – 18.30/22.00
The Don Gallery – Via Cola Montano, 15 – Milano – Italy
24 CARAT DIRT is the first editorial – video monograph project by Rae Martini.
In the book, the author’s fervent determination and his daily study can be summarized in a evolutionary path, a path that began at the end of the 80s and evolved progressively,
allowing us to perceive the evolution of the letters’ early form to the complexity of Wild Style two decades later.
This is a complex process expressed sequentially throughout the sections of the book –
the walls, trains and canvases.
The video part of the project multiplies the contents of the editorial part with live painting and burning sessions shooted at the artist’s studio, a mixture of introspective moments, poetic city-scapes and flashbacks of the earliest works of the author.
The film will be screened exclusively during the official presentation events of the project.
The book has been published by Damiani, will be globally distributed and is sponsored by WeSC: Rae is in fact a proud WeActivist since 2009.
