Awer uses the "styluses" of Op Art, psychedelic art, and computer graphics to create surrealistic visual paracosms. His artistic productions investigate the boundaries of perception and capture the spectator's view in a sensory experience.
AW Awer was born in Polignano, Italy, in 1986. He started to work as a graffiti artist around 2000. In 2005 he moved to Milan, there to graduate as a graphic designer and art director at the New Academy of Fine Arts. Currently he is based in Berlin and works as a freelance artist and tattooist. Inspired by nature’s abundant creations, the sea and anatomy, Awer’s line-based work feels as if it is in continuous motion. His world is one in which landscapes and oneiric creatures hypnotize the viewer with their fluid, vibrant movement. His work is driven by irregular streams of parallel lines which, like magma, advance and propagate chaotically, taking shape from the flow of ideas they encounter.
Tribal Moovin is a live painting piece from Ozora festival 2018, and part of the artists' “new anatomy research”, a study in abstract form that represents for Awer a view of the human mind in micro detail. This artwork is a stereoscopic depth experiment, and can also be viewed with old school red/blue 3D glasses.
