Through his exploration of identity, the art of Gabriel Pitcher focuses expressive figurative portraits both as original works of art and on street interventions.
Contradictions of the classically beautiful or socially uncomfortable feature prominently in his pieces, with the medium of raw
steel mirroring these cold misconceptions.
In illuminating and reimagining these characteristics,
Gabriel forces the gaze of the viewer to look intently where in reality they
may ignore or avoid an interaction. A psychological intrigue arises in recognising that like a mirror,
these portraits reflect only our own prejudices.
On the street, Gabriels’s work tends to be more playful and looks to enagage both with the cultural community and the surrounding
urban landscape.
