Inspired by S. Dali, J. M. Basquiat, J. Pollock and Banksy, Lebedef blends multiple elements through new and refreshing street-art style called: “glitch-surrealism”, demonstrating the flexible and multifaceted nature of modern artistic styles.
Antonio Lebedef is particularly focused on exploring the mergence of two styles- “glitch” and surrealism. Whereas surrealism expresses the fantasy world well beyond reality, the “glitch” adds elements of naturally occurring malfunctions and errors. The combination of bright color pallets and vivid imagery of “distorted worlds” oversaturates the paintings, creating a feeling of sensory overload, particularly- an informational one.
Through visually demonstrating the surplus of information in the modern world, the author invites the audience to question the upcoming chaos, even though it has seemingly already arrived.
Bright canvases with the author’s fantasies, full of meticulous technique and considerations, born under the influence of modern informational chaos. LEBEDEF’s works often consist of a variety of mediums such as oil, acrylics,markers, and spray paint.
Upon studying the informational overload in modern society,Antonio got particularly interested in understanding the methods of calculation amongst the chaos. Particularly- entropy of informational layers and the order within which it reigns.
