ARTmonday: Photographer Filippo Minelli

I’ve featured the work of Filippo Minelli in the past, having discovered his colored smoke images on Pinterest. This Saturday, January 10, 2015, marks the opening of his first solo exhibition in the U.S., at 886 Geary Gallery in San Francisco.

Minelli initiated his series of work titled Silence/Shapes in 2009 inspired by political demonstrations, with the aim of visualizing silence as a physical shape in the landscape by decontextualizing the violent media of smoke grenades and juxtaposing it to the beauty of nature.
