    On the 7th of August Christiaan Nagel will launch a major solo exhibition in London at the Hoxton Gallery.

    It promises to be a very special event given that Christiaan, who has risen to prominence as one of the few sculptural-street artists, with his iconic mushroom sculptures, has been working on a brand new concept entitled “The Fi Of The Underworld”. Fi being the plural for these metaphysical fish. Works are made from his signature material,  Polyurethane.

    The Fi Of The Underworld

    It’s an exciting, but unknown and bizarrely strange time for mankind. The Fi of the underworld is the first sign that we are entering the spiritual world. The Fi are shoals of fish that appear in great numbers, hundreds of thousands. They swim vertically from deep below the ground and trust their way through the earth’s surface. Gravity and natural laws have long surpassed us now. This is where we get deeper and deeper into our own subconscious minds. This is where rational takes a back step and the self is being played out in a harmonious and automatic fashion. This world is accessed by consuming a type of Psilocybin with the nickname, Manna.  This is not a bio-chemical reaction but a spiritual merging of the person and nature.
