Rementer's fascination with drawing, color and story-telling is shown through a collection of specially curated zines, sculptures and illustrations from the last 10 years of his career, including original sketchbooks which reveal his process as an artist. An explosion of colors, stories and characters that, thanks to the brilliant and often ironic visual language of Rementer, immerses the visitor in a lively and surreal imagery.
On September 20th at 6:30pm, Rementer will be at Fabrica for a lecture open to the public where he will discuss how his formative years at the research centre shaped his critical thinking, and sparked a prolific career. He will explain how his fascination for drawing has lead him to generate highly regarded works, including: global campaigns, magazine covers, two stamp series for the Republic of San Marino, sculptures and original paintings that have been exhibited in galleries around the world. The artist will also share rare insights into his creative process for both personal and commercial projects.
