Gola Hundun a.k.a. Göla (1982, Cesena Italy).
Gola Hundun’s work shows the relationship between human beings and the biosphere. This consideration combined with the conscious decision to live as a vegetarian since the age of 16 positions the artist and his work closer to the animal sphere to the human sphere.
He explores themes such as collaboration vs. domination, shamanism, a return to the earth, vegetarianism, energies and mysticism.
Gola’s first foray into the world of art began with a classical artistic training at Ravenna´s high school of arts in Italy, not even it was at the early age of 12 years old when he did his first steps related with the Street Art doing the traditional graffiti’s lettering styles, but at the age of 14 he returned at the home’s privacy to create his first illustrations and paintings.
Gola Hundun continues his studies at Bologna’s Academy where he got a degree in Fine Arts. In 2004 he moved to Barcelona, where he still living and working. Is Barcelona where his work has been influenced by the local graffiti making him decides to bring his creations back to the street’s walls.
The late 2000’s has been a period of growing and sporadic activity while he travel between Italy, Spain and around Europe. In 2010 he spent a residency semester in Quebec, Canada, where began his artistic career in terms of a global scale. From the completion of his art residency in 2010 until our days his work made him to visit many countries around the world with rather collective and solo shows including places such as Sao Paulo Brazil (2011), Jenin Palestine (2011), Moscow Russia (2012), Tokyo Japan (2012) and recently Almaty in Kazakhstan (2013).
The universe he creates has always an allegoric interpretation and is enhance by many influences such post human culture, sacred art, zoology, psychedelic art and by the many cultures he found and still finding during his travels around the world.
