SatOne Takes Us Behind The Scenes Of Where I Found You

Venezuelan-born and Munich based artist SatOne has stayed crazy busy this year, with murals and graffiti around the world, as well as a massive solo show this past spring at Openspace Gallery in Paris. Pulled from his latest exhibition Key Stimulus SatOne’s second RUN Where I Found You features two of the artist’s personal favorites from the show explore his affinity for light. Read on to take a look at Where I Found You I and Where I Found You II in progress and be sure to grab one (or both! available in a two-print set) right here exclusively on 1xRUN while they last…


1xRUN: Tell us a little bit about these pieces, anything immediate you would like us to highlight?
SatOne: These two pieces were part of my latest solo show Key Stimulus at Openspace Gallery in Paris. Both original works are sold already. These pieces talk about 2 individuals who finally find each other between every days life chaos. The grey/blue parts and structures symbolize chaos and anonymity. In contrast, the red/yellow parts symbolize light sources. One “light” is a bit bigger to create depth. In other words the “light” was traveling a very long time until it finally finds another (left) light in this world.

1x: What materials were used to create these pieces?
SatOne: The original paintings were created using acrylics, crayons, ink and partly spray paint on canvas. Each piece is 120 x 140 cm.



1x: When were these pieces drawn and created?
SatOne: These pieces were part of a 3 month period preparation for the solo show. Each of these were created in February of 2016. Canvases in this size take me about 3-4 days from start to finish.

1x: Tell us how the idea and execution came about?
SatOne: Most of my influences come from reading, music, daily emotion and intuition.




1x: What is unique about this piece compared to your other work?
SatOne: These 2 pieces are probably my favorites from the show, that’s why I chose them for this release with 1xRUN.

1x: Describe these two pieces in one gut reaction word.
SatOne: Confidence.

1x: If you could collaborate with any deceased artists who would it be and why?
SatOne: Recently I went to an exhibition featuring work from Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla and it was one of the most impressive exhibitions I’ve ever seen. I am fascinated by the way he uses colors and lights — as it’s my main focus (next to shapes and forms) in my own work. This exhibition gave me the ability to experiment and also shows me the simple fact that there is still so much to learn.

1x: What was the first piece of art that you bought? Do you still have it? The last?
Sat One: I haven’t bought too much art, most of the pieces in my collection I have gotten for free or in a trade with other artists. The last was a print framed in a train destination hanging (iron) by Deutsche Bahn. (by Taps + Moses 2012)


1x: Any big shows or events coming up that you’d like to share?
SatOne: This summer I will mostly be traveling this summer for different projects and murals. End of the year i prepare for different group shows and a solo show for beginning of 2017.
