Bio

Felipe Pantone (Argentinian-Spanish, born 1986) is an abstract artist focusing on the themes of dynamism, transformation, and omnipresence. 

Pantone, who describes himself as a "child of the internet era," uses his dual influences of technology and graffiti to create pieces that land at the intersection of the digital world and street art. He works with bold color contrasts, moiré patterns and optical illusions to create Blade Runner-like works that produce the sensation of vibration as the viewer’s position changes in relation to his work. 

Pantone has also experimented with kinetic art, with works such as “SUBSTRAVTIVE VARIABILITY AUTO” that explore “a perpetual flow of active and reactive energy.” Several rotating acrylic discs printed with a gradient of lively colors morph into random tonal variations, exploring the unpredictability of the future. Even within his street art, Pantone creates public works that represent omnipresence, speed, and ephemerality. His graffiti, which can range in size from a smaller tag to an entire side of a building, plays with displacement of the light spectrum, the CMYK family, and repetition. 

Pantone’s foray into creative technological methods of creation translates to glitchy hyperrealism and colorful visuals not frequently seen outside of the digital world. The nature of his work is deeply interactive, from Instagram filters to #LargestQR, one of the world’s largest working QR codes, showing that art doesn’t belong to a physical space – it is a global phenomenon.
