NICO NUBIOLA – CAMPING CANIBAL
Unfortunately, it´s all over now! I went along with Jill Adams of the Barcelona Review, Farhad Banaeian and Saul Zambia…and was REALLY IMPRESSED!!!!

Using pictoral wooden sculptures, Nico paints a dark scene showing a campsite as a metaphor for modern society as a contemporary tribe. The characteristics on display are cultural, economic, sexual and emotional cannibalism…depicted as food. The people are chopped up and on display like chickens in a supermarket.
Nico uses pine panels and crayon to create the effect of flesh…really fresh-looking and raw. I´m always delighted to find an exhibition that actually makes me FEEL something! And it´s quite rare!! And I was pleased to see that he got plenty of sales…
Like where they put the “sold” spot!!!
Hi Fran! Really cool, eh?! I haven´t been that impressed by an exhibition in a long time…so much “same old, same old” trying to be guaaay out there!!! And Nico is a really nice bloke, too!!!
Un beso to you and your lovely little Ramon!!!!!
