Komorebi Eterno Opening warmly welcomed!
APRIL 26th 2023
WE´RE THANKFUL FOR THE GREAT WELCOME OF KOMOREBI ETERNO OPENING EXHIBITION AT LABERINTO GRIS
It´s been a few days since we opened our doors for you all to see our newest exhibition Komorebi Eterno and we´re still in awe for all the warmth and thoughfulness we received. Thank you all very much for coming once again to our space and special thanks to PhD. and Professor David Almazán who shared with us not only his beautiful private collection of Ukiyo-e prints but also some wise words about oriental influences in western art. Of course, big thanks to artists Luis Royo and Romulo Royo who shared with us their amazing journey through fantasy art, Dead Moon, Malefic Time and other personal projects in which they have poured their asian and pop influences amongst their personal style.
Last Wednesday 26 we could enjoy the exhibition which central axis is oriental influences in Luis Royo and Romulo Royo´s works, wether they´re made separate on their solo careers or together through projects like Dead Moon or Malefic Time. The gallery became a beautiful environment for not only collectors, but also fans and curious ones to come and gather around these marvelous paintings and illustrations. Of course, Komorebi Eterno featured gorgeous Ukiyo-e prints loaned by PhD. in Art History and Anthropologist David Almazán.
The calming tones on the originals exhibited matched perfectly between each other, giving the evening a zen tint amongts all the people that passed by to see the exhibition. History and fantasy have been united since the begining, and learning about ancient asian culture, how it shaped us and vice versa in such a warm environment made the evening a very special one.
We were also pleased to participate a week earlier on the XXI Japanese Culture Week alongside PhD. in Art History and Anthropologist David Almazán and PhD. in Philosophy Jaime Romero with artists Luis Royo and Romulo Royo who talked about Neojapanisms in contemporary art and illustration at the University of Zaragoza. Students and professors could understand the importance of art and mix media in pop culture and how it shapes our society. Even the importance of Fantasy Art was brought up, as history has always looked for fantasy to scape reality, no matter what the cultural influences may be.
Once again, thank you very much for coming and participating on this great reception Komorebi Eterno has had. It is a pleasure for us seeing you enjoy our space and the works from Luis Royo and Romulo Royo, that transports us to new different worlds, and takes us to fantastic and imaginary scenarios...
Until next one, very soon!
