Exposito’s seamless painting style takes its lineage from 60s minimalism, where forms and materials were pared down to their bare essence. Exposito’s bold motifs draw from the aesthetic styles of this period, combining associations to hippy aspiration and retronostalgia with their contemporary revival as design elegance, suburban chic, and commodity glamour. In Cyclo, Exposito’s curved pattern beacons with the simplified and understated power of a type-font, referencing both the subtle beauty of calligraphic contour, and the indistinction between – and complete conjugation of – form and content.
