Presenting for the first time in Asia the famous artist SWOON ? aka Caledonia Curry ? the Danysz gallery is deploying the artist?s humanistic and philanthropic vision of our world. Considered these days as one of the major Street artist, SWOON has pasted her first artworks on the Brooklyn walls. From the beginning her cutout shapes and figures made of paper and mylar stick out for their extreme delicacy.

 

Raised in Florida, SWOON arrived in New York at the age of 19 to study art at the Pratt Institute. She took over the Brooklyn walls and her art soon unfolded around the world. She loves the ephemeral and immediate side of street art and the fragility of the work that makes it so vulnerable and poetic. SWOON has been exhibited at the MoMa in New York, the Tate Modern in London, the MoCa in Los Angeles, and recently at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, which has hosted a superb "mid-carreer retrospective" dedicated to the work of this prolific artist since 1999
