About Felipe Pantone
Throughout his paintings and sculptures, Felipe Pantone gives Op art a contemporary update as he uses 3D-modeling software to evoke the glitches and grids of the digital landscape. Like his aesthetic predecessors Victor Vasarely and Carlos Diez-Cruz, Pantone uses bold color and a mathematical appreciation of shade and shape as he generates optical illusions. He combines his prismatic, digitized forms with bold, graffiti-esque gestures to generate a visual language that embraces both the analog and virtual worlds—and critiques our dependence on the latter. Pantone studied fine art in Valencia, where his studio is still based today. He has exhibited in New York, London, Paris, Brussels, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Madrid, and has produced a number of murals around the world. In 2017, he constructed a 17-story façade for a Lisbon building.
