As part of the ongoing C H R O M A T I C I T Y group show at Can’s Gallery, Abell Octovan has been busy creating up a perfect storm of delight that has definitely caught our interest, and we hope yours too. Check out his New Religion!
We grabbed some words from Abell yesterday on his New Religion art piece, which you can check out below…
This work illustrates the current state of culture. Where social media is very important. eople really want to be part of the condition. For some people to be famous or be known on social media is a desire that must be lived for survival. For some people that I met it seems they have forgotten to pray to the creator to be given health, to be given a fortune and others. Now people are more hopeful of having many followers, getting lots of likes and comments. I have captured that phenomenon.Abell Octovan, September 2019
We really love New Religion, not because it speaks volumes but because it also looks fucking cool AF.
New Religion comes in two designs. The original colourway, featured below, has the OG Mickey hands with the original Instagram icon colours. The second version is the concrete effect of New Religion (seen above). Both are available for purchase directly through the Can’s Gallery. Prices are around $1300 each, we understand. You can reach Can’s Gallery via Instagram HERE to purchase.
Abell also has two other pieces in the Chromaticity group show. Noxious Heart #1 and #2 which you can check out below. We love the yellow accents on the left hand side design! L O V E ! ! These are also available from the Can’s Gallery, which you can reach out to them on Instagram HERE.
Also, prepare yourself for more Abell news as his latest Anti Supremacy release will be dropping with Mighty Jaxx this coming weekend. More details on that this week, but know this – it’s SUPER limited and it is NOT a pre-order! Stay tuned for more!
