We are thrilled to announce the latest series by the incomparable RETNA, a master in blending calligraphic artistry with the raw energy of street-style graffiti.
In this groundbreaking collection, RETNA takes his art to uncharted territories. Each piece is a dance between destruction and creation, torn apart only to be reborn stronger. It’s an extraordinary display of vulnerability and resilience, encapsulating the essence of the human spirit.
This isn't just about the aesthetics of juxtaposition. RETNA's works are an allegory of life itself, reflecting our own self-destructive and self-healing nature. His signature script, a fusion of inspirations from Native American, Hebrew, Arabic, and Egyptian cultures, undergoes a transformation through acts of slashing and gouging. But in the end, it’s the delicate act of stitching that brings these artworks back to life, each thread weaving a story of redemption and atonement.
…. tradition meets rebellion, and pain meets beauty. Witness how RETNA redefines the act of creation through each meticulously restored artwork.
