Born in Angola in 1981, Nástio Mosquito spent part of his life in Portugal and Belgium, where he lives now. His first solo exhibition, entitled Daily Lovemaking, is being exhibited on the second floor of the Ikon Gallery until 19th of April.

It's a must-see installation, in which the Angolan artist focuses on political issues, philosophy, the global art market, and his personal views about modern life in his work.

His career is based in the broadcasting industry, and his experience working as a director and cameraman. Video and music performance is what he does best, using the stage as his office and his words as tools.

Nástio is one of the most exciting voices of his generation. In 2014, he was awarded the Future Generation Art Prize. As a renowned multimedia artist, he expresses himself in a cool, cynical, profane, and sometimes even vulgar way.

Daily Lovemaking is an intriguing exhibition that contains adult content, so it may not be suitable for all ages.

Ikon, in collaboration with Nuova Icona, is presenting another project, combining Nástio Mosquito's films and performances at the 56th Biennale di Venezia (May – August 2015) at the Oratorio di San Ludovico, S. Basilio.
