The Superior Bugout would like to extend an invite to you and yours, to join us this Thursday at the Tender Trap for the opening of the internationally recognized street visionary DARKCLOUDS in his show “BIG WORLD.” Opening Thursday February 21, 2013 from 6-10:30pm.
DJ Robbie Drizzle & friends will be spinning. As always, there will be drink specials at the bar.
The Iconic imagery of DARKCLOUDS grey, dripping mass surrounded by vibrant color has been a staple in the street art scene for a decade now. Locally and internationally, the public knows the unmistakeable image hovering overhead, confronting you when you least expect it. Placed dominantly on the busiest of streets or hidden deep in the cuts, far out of the path of foot traffic the cloud evokes a sense of discovery and mystery for the viewer. Representing the angst and turmoil one goes through on a daily basis, it brings levity and light into focus, hopefully leaving the viewer with a sense of clarity for whatever they’re current situation may be. Mass produced, hand painted stickers and signs have been affixed to walls, poles, and countless other surfaces worldwide since 2003, while the home base of the artists remains nestled in Brooklyn, NY.
“If you know my work and have played Super Mario 3 enough to get to level 4 you will understand the conceptual brilliance of this show…All this work was created specifically for the space at the Tender Trap. Limited ed. prints will be available for the first time basically ever.”
