P.O.P : Perceptions of Population

My first time curating an exhibition! I feel very fortunate and lucky to have been able to bring international artists to Chicago’s 33 Contemporary Gallery.

 

The internet has made it possible for global interaction to exist on a massive scale. Through this, we are able to witness cultural occurrences and differentiations that may not have been possible to witness otherwise.

P.O.P (Perceptions of Population) is an avenue of joining a group of artists together and offering a visual consciousness of how our geographical locations directly impact our impressions of the human population. These works on paper, offer a range of thematics from satirical, political, philosophical, spiritual or emotional and represent the locals of the United States, Germany, Austria, Indonesia and Greece.

Collaborative #13 Issue iARTistas Magazine

Photo Collage work I did for the #13 Issue of iARTistas magazine. I really liked working on this collaboration with selected poem by Nin Andrews. I would like to do more projects like this.

Slideshow @ Roman Susan Annex

I was so happy to be able to be a part of this wonderful group exhibition at Roman Susan Annex. It was an innovative exhibition, unlike any I had seen (around my area) before. Here’s to more challenging exhibitions and exhibition spaces that are breaking new grounds!

New Work for 2015

Been a busy time around the studio, working intently on a new series of works on paper. I’m hitting heavy with my fascination for line and the interconnections between exactness and bold color. This is the first time I am delving into the world of gouache paint and i’m enjoying it so far!  It’s taken me a long time to find a paint that I actually like working with, I believe this is it.

Looking forward to the new year!
