Bradley Pitt is an American actor and film producer. He has received various accolades, including an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, two Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and a Primetime Emmy Award.
Brad Pitt isn’t just a stud in the movie world, the dude is also doing big things in the art space, exhibiting his latest works in a land far, far away.
According business thread, the Sara Hildén Art Museum in Tampere, Finland is proud to present Thomas Houseago’s first exhibition in the Nordic countries. Thomas Houseago is a world renowned artist. In the Tampere exhibition, Houseago presents his own sculptures and paintings alongside a series of ceramics by Nick Cave and sculptures by Brad Pitt. Cave and Pitt are already renowned in their respective fields of music and film, but this is the first time they have exhibited their artwork created during an ongoing dialogue with Houseago.
“I am very happy and proud that Thomas Houseago has decided to bring WE to Tampere. It’s also exciting to discover a new and different artistic side to Nick Cave and Brad Pitt. WE delivers a strong message of working together, creating something new and a sense of community compatible with Tampere, as the city is known for its ability to change and make bold decisions together. The message of doing together and relying on each other is very powerful in these turbulent times,” says Anna-Kaisa Ikonen, Mayor of Tampere.
In addition to the WE exhibition at Sara Hildén, the autumn and winter of Tampere art are many and bright. The Tampere Art Museum is offering rarities from Finnish art foundations from October 8. The exhibition includes works by artists such as Helene Schjerfbeck, Ellen Thesleff, Fanny Churberg, Akseli Gallen-Kallela and Tyko Sallinen. The other museums in Tampere, for example Vapriikki, offer experiences for the whole family. Especially the Moomin Museum is a favorite with children.
The Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra plays beloved classics and new pieces. The brand new Nokia Arena will host exciting international concerts. Tampere is also Finland’s theater capital, and Tampere’s theaters are packed with great musicals, dramas, comedies, and crime stories.
Tampere offers direct flights to many European destinations, for example to Amsterdam, Oslo, Malaga, Riga and Munich. It is also easily accessible from the Finnish capital Helsinki, for example, the train journey from Helsinki to Tampere takes about 1.5 hours.
According TMZ, The actor/producer has apparently submitted a number of pieces he has created for gallery exhibition in Tampere, Finland. The event took place at a well-known museum, and it was dubbed “Thomas Houseago’s WE with Nick Cave & Brad Pitt.”
It looks like Brad had 9 different items to show, ranging from large creations (like the bronze casing, the Han Solo-style carbon gel) to smaller ones such as the booby-trap bullets he crystallized in platinum silicon and the modest miniature house he made from tree bark. .
Photos of Brad’s artwork were captured by artist/designer DeBranne Treu, who says Brad is her husband’s friend. She had nothing but praise for BP, writing, “To say his work is brilliant is an understatement as he is a true artist who creates with extreme passion and drive. The dedication to his craft is humbling and inspiring.”
“Last night we celebrated our dear friend Brad Pitt’s first art exhibition and everyone was blown away. To say his work is awesome is an understatement as he is a true artist who creates with passion and extreme dynamism. Dedication to one’s craft is humbling and inspiring. A night filled with genuine artists and collectors with a deep appreciation for the arts, the night bubbling with love in every room. I cannot express how much I am proud of my husband’s best friend.As they have created long days and nights together over the years, I hope this helps encourage my husband to find time for his FIRST ART SHOW!! can’t you see Jarred’s work? @instajarred #art #creativity #artshow #sculpture #paintings #bradpitt @sarahildenart Thank you for putting on such an amazing show and giving Brad the opportunity to exhibit his amazing works of art ❤️ Really a magical evening!!”
There are titles attached to some of Brad’s artwork, and they’re interesting. Lots of bullet blocks seem to go through variations of this “Self Inflicted Bullet Wound at Home”, plus one that says, “I saw you, I saw me but it was too late this time”.
Other titles for his art include “Buried Needs”, “Slave to Our Vices”, “House-A-Go-Go” and “Candle Holders for Loved Ones”. BP himself was not there in person for the screening.
