Know Hope – There Is Nothing Dear (There Is Too Much Dear)
Show & Tell Gallery is pleased to welcome the Israeli artist known as Know Hope to his first solo exhibition in Canada.
Know Hope is best known for his street art, in which he depicts characters through several different story lines. The predominant theme within his work is the need for momentary connection in daily reality. Or, in other words, the everyday human struggle.
This exhibition examines the idea of the collective memory in comparison to the personal memory. Through the growing but steady vocabulary of imagery in his work, Know Hope attempts to research how and why we tend to hang on to memory, despite it having an inevitable ephemeral nature.
Know Hope has exhibited his art interenationally in galleries, art fairs, and on the streets of cities such as Los Angeles, New York, London, Vienna, Rome, Toronto, and Tel Aviv.
