A solo exhibition of photography works by German artist Peter Bialobrzeski. The "Neon Paradise" exhibition showcases for the first time in Shanghai works from Bialobrzeski's award-winning "Neon Tigers" series, as well as works from his most recent "Paradise Now" series. Bialobrzeski's photographs depict the urban landscape and concrete jungles in metropolises across Southeast Asia. Spanning nearly a decade, these two bodies of work are the perfect juxtapositions and bookends to Bialobrzeski's work in Asia. "Neon Tigers" illustrates the infrastructure boom and high rises of Asia's megacities, while "Paradise Now" shows the intermingling of nature and the man-made neon luminescence in a subtle and startling balance of lush greenery and neon phosphorescence.
Peter Bialobrzeski's works have been exhibited around the world from New York to Hamburg to Mumbai and are in numerous public and private collections. "Neon Paradise" at m97 Gallery will be Bialobrzeski's first exhibition in Shanghai. The exhibition is supported in part by the Goethe Institute in Shanghai.
