Fauze Hassen: Yellow Street Light Madness
May 12 @ 2:00 pm - May 29 @ 3:00 pm
Fauze Hassen is an emerging Brazilian visual artist and poet based in Auckland since 2011. His work arises from the invisible chaos and the marginal aspects that go unnoticed in today’s society.
The subjects are fuelled with a restless countercultural appetite and shaped by childhood memories of his upbringing in the outskirts of São Paulo, one of the largest cities in the world.
In his debut show Fauze will explore the connection between different mediums and ways in which poems and paintings are able to translate his cultural background and experiences, allowing the audience to connect with his creative process.
This exhibition will present a unique body of paintings plus an audiovisual work, in response to Fauze’s recently published collection of poems Yellow Street Light Madness (ISBN-13:978- 1977915030). Yellow Street Light Madness will be available to purchase at Depot Artspace.
