This is kind of a part two of the Saatchi blog post we did last week (click here). The Hermès Wanderland was installed on the second floor of the gallery, leaving the first and the third floor for Pangaea II. We had previously been to the first Pangaea series last summer (found here) which showed art from Africa and Latin America. If you don't remember it was the exhibition with the giant ant sculptures on the wall. So if my favourite was Casa Tomadad by Rafael Gómezbarros last time, this time I LOVED Jorge Mayet and Diego Mendoza Imbachi's works on landscape.
Maybe some of you will know that I love to use landscape especially trees as my subject when creating art. That's part of the reason why I love artists like Bae Byung Woo and now, Diego Mendoza Imbachi as well. The two images below with me and Ashley in them are works by a Cuban artist, Jorge Mayet and the graphite work on canvas are by Imbachi.
Before I end this post, I had to put a couple of pictures I took from Gallery Mess because what is a visit to the Saatchi without some tea and scones? I'd recommend sitting outside (weather permitting) and chill to talk about all the amazing work you've just seen. The afternoon cakes and sandwiches are good too but just not as good as the scones!
