The Cañada College Art Gallery presents “64/72”, a large scale vinyl mural installation by the artistic duo t.w.five, Brazilian artist, Paula Pereira, and Swedish artist, Pernilla Andersson. The exhibit runs from Tuesday, Feb. 4 throughThursday, March 6. There will be an artist’s reception open to the public on Tuesday, Feb. 4 from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm. Exhibition and gallery events are free and open to the public.

While exploring their cultural sensibilities, t.w.five creates new ideas, thoughts and dialogues resulting in massively sized vinyl installations challenging the viewer to question his perception of reality.  Each vinyl art piece of a recognizable subject matter such as transportation, gadgets or text, is painstakingly cut and pieces layered onto vinyl boards or directly onto windows, walls, ceilings and floors. As expressed by the artist duo, “Our work most often investigates the experience of culture shock and the impact of technology on relationships by using images that appear very graphic from a distance but are abstract and complex up close.”  Paula Pereira and Pernilla Andersson have exhibited in galleries locally as well as internationally and occasionally in unexpected outdoor spaces.

The Cañada College Art Gallery presents exhibitions to the public, focuses on an interdisciplinary interpretation of art and culture, and serves the public of San Mateo County, the college community, and beyond.
