Selected events

Miami, 2022
In 2022 Gastini created an artwork for FLOATING PIXELS for Miami Beach Art Exhibition curated by ART INNOVATION GALLERY.

One man, one eye and the world crisis. Freedom, abuses of power, and social issues are woven behind the back of a man who can be comforted or trapped. Modern conflicts, hopes and fears are represented.

New York, 2023
“TEMPORE” IN TIMES SQUARE DURING “FRIEZE”

Curated by ART INNOVATION GALLERY for the exhibition "The Pixels Show" during Frieze NY.
The conflict between humans and money, the two faces of power wielded by individuals: freedom and imprisonment. The constant pursuit of consumption and the transformation of wealth from a medium to a sole purpose, indicate a period of time where humans and nature are interconnected in a cycle where individuals control and depend on their needs: human beings will dominate and survive the impact of money.

Dubai, 2023 at @kanvas_dubai

Bellum, derived from Latin for 'war,' portrays a future denied, where the world slips away from the grasp of a young girl, and time flows in a distorted manner amidst conflict. It serves as a poignant reminder of the tragic impact of war on the lives of innocent youth, shattered and warped by the madness of adults trapped in their own temporal realities.
