30th July 2012, in Prints (7 Comments)
I was honored when Gallery1988 asked me to do a small-group show with Jeff Boyes and Jay Shaw. The show opened at G1988′s Venice location, Thursday, August 2, from 7-10pm PST, and the art will be on display through August 25.
My theme is an attempt to marry my study and love of the classical Renaissance masters (personal fav Michelangelo), with all my childhood obsessions and influences from pop-culture/toys, etc. So, I placed bigger-than-life characters within the Sistine Chapel environment, elevating them to an even grander iconic stature. Similar to the way Michelangelo did with the biblical Prophets and Sybils.
I created 6 new pieces for the show. All of them are 18″x18″, 6-color screenprints; signed & numbered, limited-editions of 75 prints each (50 of each available now at Gallery1988). Join my mailing list for more information.
