Conceptual paintings and sculptures in an art show filled with symbolism.

After wowing the LA art crowd with a successful exhibition of his artworks, Joseph Klibansky comes to London for the first time. Opening at the HOFA Gallery in Mayfair, the ‘All I Ever Wanted Was Everything’ exhibition is the emerging Dutch artist’s first solo show in London. Visitors will be able to see both the artist’s large-scale paintings and his bold bronze sculptures. Throughout his work, Joseph Klibansky explores philosophical concepts as well as the relationship between an object and its essence. Phenomenology, a sense of belonging, and the duality of utopian and dystopian concepts also define some of his artworks.

In the ‘All I Ever Wanted Was Everything’ show, the artist offers a glimpse into his creative world. The exhibition features mixed media, collage-like paintings that appear joyous and melancholy at the same time. Examining the relationship between images and their meaning, the artist uses classical and pop culture imagery in digital compositions. He then enriches them with acrylic paint, cotton paper, and liquid resin. The gallery will also show the artist’s bronze sculptures. Blending symbolism and playful elements in thought-provoking compositions, the sculptures feature several layers of meaning which the viewers will no doubt enjoy to uncover.

The ‘All I Ever Wanted Was Everything’ show opens on May 9 and runs until May 31, 2019. Open from 10am-7pm, the exhibition is free to attend. If you happen to miss it and have a summer trip planned for Greece, you’ll still have the chance to admire the artworks in person at the Nammos Village in Mykonos in July.
