Thrill-seekers, fairground goers, carnival creatures, theme park nostalgianoughts, art lovers; all know the meaning when Hungarian Neo-Expressionist Orlando Marosini says “that special carnival feeling”. Lovers of the loud, kitsch, extravagant and expressive find freedom of spirit and a detachment of worldly woes in this visual and experiential intensity. We live blissfully in that moment, returning to the childlike exuberance these environments bring. You aspire to return, to relive, to revel and shake the shackles of adulthood. Well return you can…
Marosini lives that thrill of life every waking second, and channels that cumulative effect of colour, freedom, youthful exuberance, energy, music, atmosphere and community through his drawing, painting and street art.
And so, we have arrived, it’s that time of the year for the greatest show on earth: LATE NIGHT LAND-O. Marosini’s first international exhibition. One of the bright and brilliant. An ART-Musement park of purest form – putting visitors into a fantastic place where reality is suspended. Not only bringing his pop culture-riddled multimedia painting to the heart of London, but an evening series of attractions inc. caricatures, fashion, live painting, installations, and discussions with other sensational emerging artists like Marcus Nelson & Dohyun Baek. For his installation, Marosini is creating LATE NIGHT LAND-O as a full gallery mural throughout the show, setting the scene for his paintings & drawings, to be celebrated at the closing event.
Engaging the senses through character-based subjectivity & worldbuilding, layering vivid colours, free materiality, and a penchant for cartoons & animation, goofy characters, video games, sci-fi, architecture & elements of nature, inspired by a lifelong admiration and study of iconic artists like Basquiat, Condo & de Kooning; LATE NIGHT LAND-O channels Marosini’s energetic style and infectious, inherent positivity into a truly experiential celebration of contemporary art and collaboration.
Step over the threshold and lose yourself in London’s hottest ART-traction. Marosini wants to celebrate art and life with us all.
