Ernesto Caivano

Ernesto Caivano is known for his fantastical, narrative-based ink drawings. A natural storyteller, the artist conceives of his work as part of an ongoing illustrated epic, titled "After the Woods." Taking cues from classical myth, medieval folklore, romantic poetry, fantasy, and science fiction, Caivano's meandering, sweeping fairytale centers on star-crossed lovers. Over the course of 1,000 years, the prince matures into a knight in shining armor, while his paramour transforms into a spaceship. Stylistically, Caivano's intricate drawings borrow from art nouveau, modernist abstraction, Japanese prints, and fractal geometry.

Caivano's work has been the subject of solo shows at White Cube in London and at MoMA PS1, where his site-specific mural In the Woods (2004) is permanently installed in one of the building's stairwells. He has also been included in notable group exhibitions such as No New Thing Under the Sun (2010) at the Royal Academy in London, The Compulsive Line: Etching 1900 to Now at the Museum of Modern Art (2006), Greater New York 2005 at MoMA PS1, and the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
