This Thursday (9th of April) the Canadian-born artist known as ‘TRATE’ will unveil his latest series of works, Technicolour Malaise, via an innovative digital show. Although the show has been physically hung in London’s Soho (at 15 Bateman St, Soho W1D 3AQ) it will be broadcast through an immersive virtual showroom that will allow viewers and buyers to experience the works from anywhere in the world.
Art lovers will be invited to tune in and navigate their way around each painting, as they explore through the collection of 3D interactive images. The artist will also personally host virtual exhibition tours, talking viewers through how his work draws influence from mindfulness, the human experience and the manifestation of emotions.
TRATE’s work has been lauded for unveiling the rawness of the human condition through reimagined physical forms, oil-laden brushstrokes, and a vivid aesthetic – a humane lens in the digital age. The physicality of his pieces can be seen in his use of handmade paints mixed with large ratios of walnut, safflower and linseed oils creating deeply textural works.

“Against the backdrop of social distancing, Technicolour Malaise offers a chance to connect with human emotion through a raw, visually arresting aesthetic. Hopefully opening up my studio will provide some humane distraction and artistic solace during this time of social isolation.” – TRATE
