In the Moscow Multimedia Art Museum opened an exhibition of the artist from Ufa UNO Morales, creating the pixel pattern. It works similar to mystical dreams, animated with gif animations. Curator of the exhibition Marina Bobyleva (gallery «Triumph») said in an interview with RIA Novosti on why the author prefers to work under a pseudonym and as a subculture conquers the Museum space.

The technique of pixel art I could compare with a traditional genre: in General, it can be called a digital mosaic. Pixel — the smallest unit of digital images, and UNO Morales collects the image manually, literally pixel by pixel. We wanted to show the complexity and the complexity of its work, therefore, presented some of them in the form of a mosaic of tiles.© provided by the gallery «Triumph»the Work of the artist UNO Morales Les Maitres, 2011 Very scary and intriguing.

One of the main features of the exhibition is storytelling. And for all of UNO Morales it is important to tell stories in a refraction. We have organized the exposition so that the viewer watched these stories in any order and could be your route.

But anyway in the end all come to the Central hall, to the projection of «World government»: at a large round table sat the mythical imaginary creatures. There is a hint of a secret organization that runs the world exists in our imaginations or paranoid fears.© courtesy of the artist and gallery «Triumph»the Work of the artist UNO Morales from the «Blue teeth» 2017Very scary and intriguing.

Key series «Blue teeth» at the beginning of the exhibition. It is based on the pioneer «the Scarecrow», the artist heard as a child. This is a story about how a girl went to a dance, he saw a man with blue teeth and disappeared forever. In this part of the exhibition we wanted to recreate the atmosphere of an underground club, so they used dark lighting and UV lamps.

UNO Morales puts this history in the Soviet entourage. In this case, he uses his own memories and famous stories. The author admits that some of the stories come to him in dreams and do dreams serve as a source of inspiration. In his works there are references to the end of the 1980s, a period of adjustment. Although he always changes the space and place of action, so to determine a specific city or area is impossible.© courtesy of the artist and gallery «Triumph»the Work of the artist UNO Morales from the «Blue teeth» 2017Very scary and intriguing.

The artist works under a pseudonym. Initially, he played under him in the computer game Counter Strike, then automatically under that name registered in LiveJournal and continued to use it. About the personality of the artist is little known: hails from Ufa, worked on television, drawing started in 2008. To hang a label him the «Russian Banksy» I would not — yet it is not a complete incognito, he is known in the professional community. Nevertheless, the author prefers to keep some distance, and the alias gives the opportunity.

I wonder not that UNO Morales chose a technique of pixel graphics. And then, what subjects he treats like combines techniques from the manga, references to surrealism and mystifies the everyday. Of this alloy arises his recognizable style that allows you to go beyond the graphical illustrations.© courtesy of the artist and gallery «Triumph»the Work of the artist UNO Morales from the «Blue teeth» 2017Very scary and intriguing.

The exhibition’s title — «that remember, forget» — we have borrowed from the «Blue teeth». This motto tattoo one mysterious character who arrives from outer space to Earth. He materialized in the image of the dashing biker, meets with the girls on the street, shows them the tattoo and breaks up into the elements. Girls also transformirovalsya and disappear.

It seemed to us that it is very suitable for show — sounds redocumenting, vague, sets a mystical atmosphere. In my opinion, these works are self-explanatory. And if the end of the story for the viewer remains a mystery, it is always possible to give vent to the imagination.
