KATSU “DOT” The Hole NYC Exhibition

Published

on

Graffiti artist and creative technologist KATSU is displaying a series of machine-based abstract paintings at The Hole in New York City. Titled “DOT,” the presentation features vivid artworks made using drones. The gallery room housing the works initially served as an installation space where the artist flew a drone to spray a programmable random pattern of dots on seven blank white canvas. KATSU developed the drone technology in Russia with programmers and engineers.

“The installation was completely laid out by drone including the composition of each painting. Extracted from their enameled environment, as is the work on the rear wall, the paintings can be considered like a traditional work of abstraction, perhaps part of the lineage ofWarhol’s mediated and mechanized practice,” expressed the gallery in a statement.

KATSU started painting with drones in 2015, since then he has researched and developed various methods to create work using this futuristic medium. He built a fully autonomous painting drone last year in collaboration with Tsuru robotics in Moscow. Check out the complete series of paintings in the slideshow above and then check out the drone process below. You can also visit The Hole’s website to learn more about the presentation. “DOT” is on view until August 23.

Elsewhere in art, Jean Jullien is displaying a series of playful sculptures at Paris’ Jardin des Plantes.

With its inaugural Museum capsule collection, Hood by Air is reflecting on its years-long legacy in fashion. 

The first capsule collection from the Museum arm of the brand, which Shayne Oliver announced earlier this summer was returning as a four-piece experience, is titled H13A. Per WWD, pieces included in the first of a two-part capsule collection include sweatshirts, denim, and art, not to mention the presence of the 2013 spiral logo and the Rihanna-boosted cookie logo from 2007. Prices range from $55 to $295.

As detailed in a news release, the Museum sector will serve as the home for archives dating back to the brand’s “first incarnation.” Selected pieces will be “elevated” in future collections as part of an effort to “re-introduce ideas to new audiences and re-interpret them for the old.”

Back in July, Oliver elaborated on his vision for how the iconic brand would return to the spotlight in 2020. The fashion house is now divided into four separate but complementary entities: Hood by Air, HBA, Museum, and Anonymous Club. The latter will see Oliver’s team working with independent artists, musicians, and institutions “of all forms.”
