Chino Amobi (b. 1984, Tuscaloosa, Alabama) lives and works between Richmond, VA and Paris. His work bridges painting, electronic music, literature, film and fashion, as a recent series of neon flowers also move across these fields. Having toured for years as an experimental electronic musician and founder of the record label NON Worldwide, he names his exotic flower still life paintings after the cities where he has performed, as in Tokyo, his print for Art for Black Lives. He approaches painting with the same vernacular as his music compositions, using sound as a means of immersing the listener into the space of a landscape. His paintings frame visions of life bursting forth in a fevered neon dream with sonic vibrations: the exotic bloom a proxy for his entranced audience on the dancefloor. Selected solo presentations include Luma Westbau, Schwarzescafe; Liste Art Fair, Fitzpatrick Gallery; and Endeavor Gallery, Richmond, as well as forthcoming solo presentations with Fitzpatrick Gallery, Paris and June, Berlin and group exhibitions with Sandy Brown, Berlin and Edward Ressle, Shanghai.
