“Art for Savages” is a project realized by Hube in collaboration with Varsi Art & Lab.
This project is born from a sign, a throw-up realized by Hube: it becomes the outline which will be fielded by others: musicians, artists, photographers will be able to put their hand to the initial, primordial trace.
A four-handed work, in which those who take part welcome the alien gesture and make it their own, in a game of contamination, research, and collective experimentation that is typical of Hube’s background.
It is a project that moves over time, evolves and transforms itself, and finds its focus and raison d’être in this perpetual movement.
The production phase of this project was born from the collaboration with the HB Studio in Rome, which screen printed Hube’s throw-ups; Luca Mamone, Scarful, Leonardo Crudi, and Lucamaleonte, the artists chosen for this first experiment, have used their styles to filled the original sign, giving life to unique works that were subsequently reproduced in a series of 10 Giclée prints produced by Varsi Art & Lab.
