Benjamin Lozovsky at WG Gallery

Brooklyn-Street-Art-Lozovsky-feb-2011

Let’s hear it for supporting your local talents, like photographer Ben Lozovsky, who’s been developing his own distinctive style and has his first show tonight. We love it when he does street art, but he’s also got an eye for architecture as sculpture.

WG Gallery is very proud to present the first solo exhibition of the photographic works by Benjamin Lozovsky.

Friday, February 11
6-9pm
WG Gallery
50-52 Dobbin Street (bet. Nassau + Norman)

“Casual Encounters”

“Drawing conveys the artist’s id and deepest subconscious” – That’s what the press release says. I’m thinking it’s mainly about everybody’s favorite topic. Check it out because it is cold outside peeps and you might find an instant valentine.

Mighty Tanaka present Casual Encounters, as we take a look at the humorous and otherwise ridiculous illustrations of what make us human. Featuring the artwork of Lauren Asta, Jac Atkinson, Abe Lincoln Jr., Rick Midler, Reginald Péan and RTTP, this show provides an off kilter version of life.

RETNA Killed it Last Night. Just Sayin’

Bad cell phone pic – I’m sure there will be more online. Martha Cooper said he is shooting into the stratosphere and if you saw all the canvasses, the huge R-E-T-N-A sculpture and the hundreds of people there, you might be inclined to agree. Plus he’s going to be painting a jet.

Mighty Tanaka presents:

Casual Encounters

A Journey Through the Ridiculous, the Absurd and the Extreme.

Applying pen to paper is one of the simplest forms of art one can produce. However, to do it well is a true feat No matter how simple or complex, the drawing conveys the artist’s id and deepest subconscious. In our next show at Mighty Tanaka, we present Casual Encounters, as we take a look at the humorous and otherwise ridiculous illustrations of what make us human. Featuring the artwork of Lauren Asta, Jac Atkinson, Abe Lincoln Jr., Rick Midler, Reginald Péan and RTTP, this show provides an off kilter version of life.

This modern storybook show exemplifies the extremes and absurdities that one may encounter and the interpretations behind it. From lesbian orgies to cartoony and graphic introspections, the work of Casual Encounters is both fun and enticing, with a style of illustration for everyone.

Ranging from the highly detailed to the sublimely minimal, Casual Encounters offers the viewer an escape from reality, if only for a night.

OPENING RECEPTION:
Friday, February 11th, 2011
6:00PM – 9:00PM

Street Artist Cake: A Collection of Drawings

Brewer’s Mansion is happy to present A Collection of Drawings, a show by Brooklyn street artist Cake, opening Saturday the 12th at this little known place where artists hang out.

brooklyn-street-art-WEB-brewers-mansion-cake-11-10

From the artist, “I use anatomy to describe the intricate relationship structures humans have with themselves and others. I frequently take from the pool of human suffering for subject matter and inspiration. When people disconnect from themselves in any way, it will somehow show up in their faces, bodies and gestures. I prefer to make drawings describing those results.”
