It's been almost 8 years since I lived in Chicago...this will be my first major exhibit of works in this town except for a few small group shows since.
I will be featuring my Latest EYEZ series along with works by two other Stencils artists from Chicago and Seattle!
Stencil art has a long, long history....like ancient. The history spans from pre-historic times (where the hand may have been the very first stencil pattern) through Edo period Japan, into Europe where Picasso, Matisse and many others experimented with "pochoir" (French for stencil) and onto the streets around the globe in more modern times.
For our next exhibit we take a look at three artists working with stencils today. St. Louis -based Peat Wollaeger brings us a character-rich cartoon-inspired style with a graffiti edge and will be featuring his latest stencil series "EYEZ," Chicago artist David Soukup explores the use of stencils to create intricate architecture-inspired works and Seattle-based Jonathan Wakuda Fischer mixes Japanese themes with modern culture and vibrant colors.
The opening reception is scheduled for Friday, February 27, 2009 from 6 until 10pm. All three artists will be in attendance.
