C215 and Eelus are in Brooklyn This Weekend
Brooklynite Gallery, deep in Bedstuy, creates a certain lively tension with two Street Art tricksters in this duo Euro show.
Parisian C215 continues to exceed expectations, which isn’t easy because he has already set them pretty high as a world class urban stencillist with portraits that glow from within uncannily, summoning more empathy than a Jerry Lewis telethon. The vastly more light-hearted Eelus guards the class impudent role – combining youthful humor, technologic fantasy, and a bit of antsy-lad sexual tension in his starkly popish compositions. A rewarding and rich show, “Paradise Lost” is another solid and smashing Street Art /gallery show that doesn’t compromise either one.
