As written by curator Loretta Di Tuccio in the critical text that accompanies the exhibition, in the series of works on paper, wich premiere in Italy, the precise line of Boyd proceeds to search for a correlation between the human identity and the elements that surround it. Alternating the abstract and the reality, his figures emerge from labyrinths where the sign, as in a topographic work, outlines hypothetical landscapes drawing a human geography.
In Boyd’s works the origin is the nature, which is the source generating repeatable and pure forms in that ambiguous and infinite theme that is the identity.
During the Preview, Brandon Boyd will sign copies of his latest book ‘So the echo’ presented for the first time in Italy.
Brandon Boyd was born in 1976 in Calabasas, California. In 1991 he began singing and writing song lyrics for what become an internationally recognized rock band, Incubus. The band is currently in the studio with plans to release new music and tour in 2015. In parallel to the music Boyd is interested in art since he was young and has published three books containing works, photographs and texts he has written: "White Fluffy Clouds" 2003, "From the Murks of the Sultry Abyss" 2007, and "So the Echo”, in 2013, when also recorded his second solo album, 'Sons of the Sea". His works have been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions and he has also created several partnerships with various brands like TOMS Shoes and Hurley for which he created a mural at their Space Gallery; some parts of the mural have been exposed at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Monterey (CA) and in Cape Town, South Africa. The first exhibition of his works in Europe took place last March in Zurich at Grafik 14, with book signings also in Paris and London.
