The Campana Brothers return to London for their first solo show at Carpenters Workshop Gallery. ‘Hybridism’, a collection of 13 recent furniture objects and sculptures, opens March 22nd.
Furniture art pieces created by the iconic brothers known as the Campana Brothers, made of cast bronze and animal-shaped aluminum will soon be unveiled at the art gallery with worldwide recognition, Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
Inspired by the biblical story, Noah’s ark, these 13 peculiar and contemporary art pieces were named the Noah series. The intention behind all of this is to portray the story of Noah’s Ark and to share the idea of how that place originated all species.
This art exhibition is called Hybridism, and mark the twin Campana Brothers, Humberto and Fernando Campana’s first solo show at this modern art gallery.

Over the past few decades, the studio said that it has heavily committed to research into materials, means of production, specialized techniques, and traditional craftsmanship while always working closely with Brazilian artisans to preserve local traditions.
Some of their decorative art looks like a giant fish’s scale, reminiscing the days where it was believed the existence of mermaids and some other mythological creatures. This fish scale looking furniture art is actually made of Pirarucu leather, which is the discarded skin of a giant fish found in Amazonian rivers and lakes.
The using of this material leaves the observer admiring a mix of art and design, and both brothers love to explore peculiar materials that were not that explored before.
Hybridism by the Campana Brothers will be displayed at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London, from 22 March to 17 May 2019.
