How many exhibition works:
GR gallery is pleased to announce “Silver Screen”, an ingenious duo exhibition of new works by Teiji Hayama and Adam Lister. For their first show together, after previous individual presentations at GR gallery, they have engaged in a close dialogue inspired by the artistic vitality generated by evergreen icons from the golden ages of the cinema industry. The idiosyncratic styles of Hayama and Lister, unified under the Hollywoodian glamour theme, encounter and confront each other in a discussion that resolves in the mutual accentuation of the other one artworks.
“Silver Screen” puts together a total of 16 pieces, appositely created for this occasion, including paintings and works on papers.
The Opening reception will take place Friday March 31st, 6:00pm - 9:00pm (Exhibition Dates: April 1st – 22nd 2023). Members of the press can contact GR gallery in advance to schedule a private viewing and/or an interview with the artists before the exhibition is officially open and visitors who want to attend the opening can RSVP by contacting the gallery.

Adam’s pixelated technique, reminiscent of the classical 8 bit arcade graphic, usually dominated by subtle color tones is now enhanced with brighter nuances and sharper contrast to better depict the subjects and his interpretation of the theme. On the other side Teiji’s signature approach, with his oddly distorted celebrities characterized by bored and exhausted faces and ironically reimagined as vintage social media influencers, illustrates perfectly the allure and fragility of that world.
‘Silver Screen’ aims to exhibit the exclusive artistic output of these two internationally known and unique talents that are bringing to a new level the idea of perception and the virtuosity of their style. Hollywood superstars, cinematic objects, iconic movies references, hybrid emblematic juxtapositions and reimagined super heroes, channel the artists creativity into another form and throw the viewer into a timeless, melancholic and charming realm.
