RGB Murals that Transform under Different Colored Lights

Written by


Carnovsky is a Milan based artist/designer duo comprised of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla. In their ongoing series entitled RGB, the duo create incredible artworks that completely transform when viewed through different colored filters. Carnvosky explains:

“RGB is a work about the exploration of the ‘surface’s deepness’. RGB designs create surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus. RGB is an ongoing project that experiments with the interaction between printed and light colours. The resulting images are unexpected and disorienting.
The colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear. Through a colored filter (a light or a transparent material) it is possible to see clearly the layers in which the image is composed. The filter’s colors are red, green and blue, each one of them serves to reveal one of the three layers. [Source: carnvosky.com]


Carnovsky have not only exhibited the RGB series at solo shows around the world, but they have experimented on different surfaces and canvases such as scarves, wallpapers, skins and framed prints. You can see their complete body of work at their official site, carnovsky.com

Johanssen Gallery, Direktorenhaus, Berlin

5th November 2010 – 5th March 2011: Carnovsky’s exhibition at Direktorenhaus, Berlin, is structured in three different scales, from the large to the small, from an architectonic scale, to an object one, passing through the prints.
In the architectonic level one of the gallery’s rooms has been set up with a large installation made of wallpapers and colored lights: It is a sort of “fresco” made with contemporary technologies, “frescos”, but instead of being static, they are in mutable and fluctuating, capable of creating an ambient in continuous movement.

Fondazione Pini, Milano, Milan Design Week 2013

For Milan Design Week 2013, Carnovsky continues the RGB project experimenting new designs, new materials and new technologies, continuing the journey begun in 2010 on the interaction between printed and light colours. The main theme is the landscape in its different meanings.
Atmospheric landscapes, architectonic and perspective landscapes, emotional landscapes, ephemeral landscapes in continuous movement. In the colonnaded courtyard the Atmospherics series is presented for the first time, a series of sky landscapes and meteorological phenomena. The whole series comprises more than 20 pieces.

DreamBags – JaguarShoes, London

28th July 2011 – 30th October 2011: We have always wanted to explore the concept of “Jungle” or really tangled, intricate and dense tropical forest. The jungle subject, with its exuberant, twisted and redundant vegetation that hides bizarre creatures, lends us to the exploration of another theme: the night. For the first time in fact we are presenting some pieces from a new series that represents an evolution of our RGB project: RGB – The black series. They follow the same original RGB principles but inverted, so it works over a black background and, looking through the filters, lights or transparent materials in the three colors, the worlds appear on negative.
