bn+BRINANOVARA is a duo composed by Giorgio Brina (1993) and Simone Novara (1994).
Giorgio Brina graduated in sculpture at the Academy of Brera in Milan and Simone Novara studied painting at the University of the Arts London and graduated in Architecture at Politecnico of Milan.
They live and work in Milan.
The pigmy seahorse is a highly-territorial mini-animal, which lives in complete symbiosis with its own environment.
The seahorse painted disguises itself as the environment, and it is made by the erosion of several thin layers of different colours, painted one over the other.
Somehow the painting metamorphoses in accordance with the sensible instability that characterise the contemporaneity, alike a glitch.
