Imagine: you are a pizza maker who loves skating so much that you decide that the world cannot do without pizzas that can also be used as skateboards. Once you’ve done that, you decide that you can make anything out of pizza: chairs, key rings, bicycles, anything you can think of. That makes you an artist, despite the fact that you may not have had official art training. That’s why we decided Saman Khoshgbari (Flourb0y) from Maastricht absolutely deserved a show, in which he exhibited his pizza skateboards and other pizza sculptures for the first time in Amsterdam.
Flourb0y’s work was complemented by pizza art from both “insider” and “outsider” artists from various day care studios in Almere (De Witte Olifant), Goes (Galerie de Kaai) and Rotterdam (Atelier Herenplaats). Also for sale were plates and mugs with work by Duran Lantink and Jan Hoek. The Pizza Show – My Teenage Fantasy could be seen from 19 August to 19 September 2021 in No Limits! Art Castle in Amsterdam.
