Canemorto

CANEMORTO is a trio of anonymous Italian artists. Active since 2007, over the years the trio has produced works all around Europe with a multidisciplinary approach, distinguished by his raw and brutal “six-handed” style. CANEMORTO's imagery mixes the language of graffiti with the cult of an evil deity called Txakurra, who influences the works and choices of the group. CANEMORTO has exhibited his work in solo exhibitions at Studio Cromie (Grottaglie, IT), Kapow (Gent, BE), Altrove Gallery (Catanzaro, IT), Viafarini (Milan, IT) and has participated in group exhibitions, performances and screenings in galleries and institutions including Artmossphere Biennale (Moscow, RU), MARCA (Museum of the Arts of Catanzaro,IT), Museum of Follia (Lucca, IT), Triennale (Milan, IT), Ethnographic Museum of Friuli (Udine, IT), Galleria Varsi (Rome, IT), Palazzo Fazzari (Catanzaro, IT), Encore (Brussels, BE), USF Verftet (Bergen, NO), Ex Dogana (Rome, IT), Above Second Gallery (Hong Kong, HK), V9 Gallery (Warszawa, PL), Urban Spree (Berlin, GE), TOLK Gallery (Nizhny Novgorod, RU) and FIFTY24MX Gallery (Mexico City, MX).  “One in three” is how the group that has taken the name CANEMORTO defines itself. They are a hybrid that is difficult to define, lurking in ambiguity, and from this, they take their force: by being composed of three souls, contrary to every label and classification, constrained by anonymity and always moving between the capitals of Europe and the outer peripheries, they are a creature fought over by gallery owners and law enforcement, positioned halfway between legality and lawlessness, with one foot inside the system of art, and the other well-anchored outside it. Involved in the field of official art, and before that, in the art of the street, they transpose their poetics and iconography from one medium to another, depending on the context, with the knowledge to operate in the larger world of art and not just a subculture.

Servadio

Michele Servadio was born in Italy in 1986. He grew up in a small village in the Veneto countryside. Drawn to painting and drawing from an early age, Servadio attended the Art School in Padua and the University of Visual Arts in Venice. In 2007 he approached the world of tattoos, fascinated by its tradition and cultural phenomenon. He moved to London in 2010.

In his atelier in Hackney Wick, Servadio creates new projects which interconnect the different practices of tattooing, painting, printmaking, photography, and performance art. Merging these diciplines, feeding them back into one another, he creates a unique universe where he is able to explore and describe the human condition and his environment.

The aesthetics of his work is dark and melancholic; it embodies Folklore, expressionism, and the bleakness of a post-industrial scenario.

In 2014 he started to experiment with sound and tattooing. This gave birth to 'Body of Reverbs', a contemporary Ritual combining sound, pain, accupuncture and permanent marks on the body. Body of Reverbs has been presented in the form of live performances and instilations across the UK, Europe, Asia and America.

His artworks have been exhibited in England, Italy, and Germany.
