Debut solo show street artist Nouch
On Saturday the 18th of November 2023 the debut solo show, titled 'Not my story', of Amsterdam's street artist Nouch opens at the I Love Illustration Gallery in De Hallen. Her distinctive 'Air Heads' have adorned various walls, buildings, and squares in Amsterdam for years as grotesque and gigantic wondrous clouds, full of contrasts. Location Hannie Dankbaarpassage 5.
The works are interconnected, forming one big family of balloon heads. The artist draws big-eyed heads reminiscent of those seen in Japanese animated films. "But they are not just cute," warns Nouch. "Rather, they are both sweet and eerie at the same time. They attract and repel. I love balloons: they are large volumes, but they weigh nothing. They also symbolize how we behave: empty-headed in the way we interact with our environment." Het roet in de inkt zit nu op de muur in plaats van in de atmosfeer, waar het longziekten veroorzaakt. Zo kan een luchtzuiverende muurschildering van 1 m² met Airlite net zoveel impact hebben op het milieu als het planten van 1 m² bos.
Apart from beautifying the neighborhood and conveying an implicit message, Nouch's 'airheads' also contribute to a cleaner living environment. The paint removes bacteria and fine particles from the air. The soot in the ink now resides on the wall instead of in the atmosphere, where it causes lung diseases. Thus, a 1 m2 air-purifying mural with Airlite can have as much impact on the environment as planting 1 m2 of forest.
