Rems182 x Fabio Zanino – Collaborative Paintings

This series is the result of the meeting between Rems182’s “Chaos Reign” graffiti series and Fabio Zanino‘s “Decostruzioni” series in which the figurative world of Rems182 is remixed through the kaleidoscopic lens of Fabio Zanino.

In Rems182’s “Chaos Reign” works the animal world, expressing itself in an instinctive and sometimes cruel way, reminds us how rationality is not the only factor which controls life.
In human relations, like among animals, sometimes it is chaos which moves everything, and our intellectual architectures are powerless in front of the mercilessness of life.

Fabio Zanino’s works on original subjects through an epic game of breaking down and synthesis of language and form to alter the message and perception.

It was during his junior year there that he happened upon what would eventually become an entryway to his legacy, the studio of a glass artist that was close to his school where he was producing a phenomenally rare style of glass art work combining lead crystal and dichroic glass using a cold-glass process. The process itself which required weeks and weeks to produce even one completed glass sculpture was incredibly intense and physically challenging, and the number of glass artisans working in this form of fine art could be counted on one hand. Working side by side with the artisan for over a year, Jack learned every component and facet of this incredibly challenging and rare art form and eventually was a strong enough sculptor to branch out on his own in 2004 and open StormWorks Studio.
