UNO’s world is a delicate dance of color, proportion, and pattern pushed almost to the limit of excess. The principle point of impact is the wall directly in front of us, a tour de force of the design, pattern, and color that has marked the last several years of UNO’s artistic output. Drawing on a wide range of techniques, from stencil and collage to posters and freehand spray paint, UNO fully embraces the environment presented. At first glance chaotic, yet subtly balanced for harmony, the space draws focus from the rhombus, the geometric fulcrum of the room.

Within these forms the primarily black and white patterns move from subtle depictions of the Kinder face to rain drops that recall the function of this room, with its sink tucked into the corner. Giving life to the space’s soundtrack, the concept of water is omnipresent, with the sink itself transformed into a three dimensional showcase. The calming effect of water in such a dynamic space is echoed by the choice (and non-choice) of color. Bright fluorescent gradients pop around the black and white elements, reflecting subtly off the gold swaths, which are the final touch to what is a 360-degree glimpse into the artistic practice of UNO.
