press release

fette's gallery is delighted to present Bad Couples, the first solo exhibition in Los Angeles by Italian artist Nicola Pecoraro.

The show consists of large and small works on paper alternating between whimsical and intricate lines, and vibrant, grim and ample strokes. The artist employs a consistent palette of bold colors and dense blacks using ink, spray paint and acrylic, with some elements of collage appearing here and there. Recurrent symbols and narratives are diffused within Pecoraro's views of disfigured landscapes, futuristic aesthetics and romantic hallucinations.

Nicola Pecoraro has participated in several exhibitions in galleries across the US and Europe. He has recently shown at the new Chinatown Barbershop Gallery in Los Angeles, at Fuse Gallery in New York and Monitor Arte Contemporanea in Rome. He was part of the touring group exhibition Tinyvices curated by Tim Barber which stopped at colette in Paris and Studio Bee in Tokyo among other spaces. Pecoraro's work has appeared in Arkitip, Dazed and Confused, This Is A Magazine, Paperback, Nero and Mousse Magazine. The artist received his BA from Central St Martins College and his MA from Middlesex University. The artist lives and works in London and Rome.

On the occasion of the exhibition Bad Couples, Nieves and fette's gallery will publish a book which will be released the evening of the opening.
