Avani Rio Novo Venice Hotel presents "ENDLESS VENEZIA", a journey through the contemporary iconography of Endless, one of the world’s most celebrated street artists. The exhibition, curated by renowned London gallery, Cris Contini Contemporary, is now on display until 3 November 2024. Guests are invited to explore the creative world of Endless, the first street artist in history to exhibit at the Venice Art Biennale, as well as enjoy the vibrant atmosphere as the city celebrates the 60th edition of its world-famous International Art Exhibition.

Endless, a London-based artist celebrated for challenging boundaries, blends contemporary and street art techniques to redefine his genre. His works provide unbiased observations, exploring themes such as humanity’s relationship with fashion, advertising, brand-worship, consumerism and celebrity culture. In addition to collaborations with international artists such as Gilbert & George and fashion brands including Karl Lagerfeld and Fiorucci, Endless has also been recognised by the Uffizi Galleries and is the first street artist to be featured in the prestigious Medici collection.

In his latest exhibition at Avani Rio Novo, Endless will showcase a series of digital reinterpretations of his iconic “Chapel” perfume bottle, inspired by Chanel N°5, and a futuristic collaged magazine cover entitled "The Endless Transfiguration”. In addition, one of Endless’ most iconic pieces, “Lizzy Vuitton”, a portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II in bronze and silver with a British punk twist, will also be on display, coupled with “Platinum Queen”, a play on the cover of Vogue magazine depicting the late Queen of England.  

Commenting on the exhibition, gallerist Cristian Contini said: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Avani Hotels & Resorts to present Endless' works in a dynamic and stimulating environment. The exhibition celebrates urban creativity, integrating art, society and culture for a young and attentive audience."
