Medusa by Stephan Doitschinoff (a.k.a. Calma), acrylic on canvas – click for details/larger view
Cryptoreligious Brazilian alchemist Stephan Doitschinoff (a.k.a. Calma, short for “con alma” (lat.) meaning “with soul”) presents new work in an upcoming solo show entitled Novo Mundo opening at the venerable Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC tomorrow evening.
A beautifully designed book published by the ever amazing Gestalten - who also kindly posted an interview with Calma - accompanies the exhibition and Stephan will be signing copies of this new monograph shortly before tomorrow’s reception, between 6 – 7 PM.
Religious iconography has never been so much haptic fun and I’ll promptly sit down to write a letter to the Holy See and ask them to let Calma redecorate the Vatican!
