For a couple of years now we’ve been in thrall to the brilliance of Barcelona-based Hey studio but in the main our focus has been on their fun, colourful approach to print. How nice then to get word of a new string to their bow – namely the ability to render god-like figures as geometric characters. Yeah, you heard us. For their new show at the Mitte-Barcelona space, appropriately entitled Oh My God, the Hey trio have created this sublime series of deities.
“In ancient Greece they had something better than superheroes,” the show’s organisers say. “They had gods – each with their own powers, weaknesses, history and followers. Jupiter and Mars came, Jesus and Mohammed, Buddha and Elvis. 2,500 years later, they return to claim their place and remind us that there is nothing more dangerous than believed immortality.”
Stirring stuff I’m are you’ll agree, and the visuals are pretty ruddy splendid too.
