TOMORROW I’ll BE FAMOUS
By Selwyn Senatori
ABOUT THE EXHIBTION
In the exhibition Selwyn portrays famous people - from Notorious B.I.G and Kim Kardashian to Marilyn Monroe and Narco’s actor Wagner ‘Pablo Escobar’ Moura.
People who have an extend involvement with fame and all it’s content.
‘I am not bashing it, but I do think it’s an interesting phenomenon’ explains Selwyn Senatori. ‘It is my vision on our Zeitgeist, my Zeitgeist. The people and the brands that are associated with them- from Netflix to Louis Vuitton and Dom Perignon- have inspired me. I have combined that in this collection.
It’s everybody’s wish to be immortal, or at the very least unmissable. That’s what these works are about. We want to leave something behind; we want to outsmart death.’
‘Tomorrow I’ll be Famous’ is composed as a group of legends, dead or alive, that together shows the complete meaning of desire and consequences of being famous. Welcome to the world of the consuming society where nothing is too much. We all want to leave something behind with or without a talent, with or without a face. Experience how we consume a perfect side of ourselves and other people.
All brands stand for the consumer society, ‘Of which I am a large participant’ thus Senatori. Consuming brands are very determined for the time in which we are living.
‘The pictures in this exhibition show the Zeitgeist of nowadays, it’s my perspective of a world where becoming famous is a leading phenomenon’
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Selwyn Senatori. Neo-Pop Artist. Half Italian, half Dutch. He is awfully stylish and at the same time commonly ‘ Amsterdam’. He is the suit, the pocket chief, and the custom-made show guy with a glass of champagne in his hand.
But he could also be seen as a guy in shorts covert with paint, suited with a pair of flip-flops. Selwyn makes art that generates instant happiness. His art is a melting pot of Italian scoundrels, Amsterdam, food, drinks, expensive cars and parties. However, if you take a closer look you will recognize a deeper layer, another side of the hedonist, the bon vivant.
Senatori’s artwork has been embraced around the globe. From New York, Dubai and Moscow via Hong Kong, Oslo to Paris.
