- Artist Biography
Gaia is an American street artist, based in Baltimore, whose work shows a sophistication far beyond his years. His works have focused on animal imagery to underscore his interest in bringing nature to the urban landscapes where he lives and works. Gaia often works on a huge scale to depict his subjects, yet always manages to capture great depth of emotion via the delicate tracery of his lino-cut pieces.
Most recently Gaia introduced ‘Open Walls, Baltimore’, a public project, during which renowned street artists came together to produce a series of mural artworks, amid the desolation of the artists’s hometown- blighted by a large concentration of derelict buildings, and uninhabitable homes. Gaia has been identified as a rising star of the street art world, with solo exhibitions in NYC, LA, San Francisco, Miami and Seoul.
- Artwork Analysis
Gaia’s latest offering ‘Hand Holding Rabbit’ appears distinctly non-confrontational. However upon closer inspection, a set of long fingers can be seen wrapped around the belly of the animal, who peers pleadingly out at the viewer.
Gaia’s intense social conscious sees the artist create large-scale mural works within deprived areas in direct opposition to the systems that maintain social divides, and his animal based artworks- such the sold old ‘White Rabbit’ & recently released ‘Black Swan’- can often be interpreted as an expression of this struggle; in this case, between the rabbit and the hand that holds it.
