Tune In Toon Out Exhibition BSIDE Gallery

TUNE IN TOON OUT

Kicking off BSIDE Gallery‘s 2019 program we have our studio resident and homie Evil Keanevil joining forces with Caper for a collaborative exhibition filled with colour and nostalgia.

Take a trip down memory lane and see iconic cartoon characters recreated in the contemporary styles that both artists have honed over the years, from acrylic paintings and stencils, to intricate woodcuts.

Join us for the opening of Tune In Toon Out from 6-9pm this Friday 18th January, proudly supported by Young Henrys!

The exhibition runs from Tuesday 15th – Sunday 20th January 2019, for all enquiries please contact the Gallery Manager Ariana – info@bsidegallery.com

Caper

Caper has been an active street artist for over 12 years, creating illustrations and paintings that parody mass media and popular culture. His use of multi-layered imagery in his works at times appear idiosyncratic and quirky, whilst acting as typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing.
Caper’s works are saturated with mental inertia, cliches and bad jokes, and by their nature question the coerciveness of the superficial.

Evil Keanevil

Evil Keanevil’s work is a dynamic and bold exploration of entropy and deconstruction of reality. Pop culture icons, as well as original characters are deconstructed to reveal their core components, usually by liquefying or melting the subject.
Questions and themes have risen through the meltingly matter, bubbling through the muck and surfacing in the paintings themselves – which components can be stripped away, and by what measure before the subject becomes unrecognisable? When the subject is melted down, is it their perception of reality being manipulated, or the viewer’s?

Upside Down Mural in Marijampolė

New York-based artist Ray Bartkus has created a beautiful mural in the Lithuanian city of Marijampolė designed to use the surface of the water as its true canvas. Bartkus intentionally painted it upside-down so that the swimmers, rowers and swans he depicted would be reflected right-side-up onto the river Šešupė, which flows through the city’s center.

5 Pointz NYC In Danger of Demolition

The 5 Pointz Aerosol Art Center of Long Island City, Queens is under threat of demolition.

5 Pointz

In 2002, Jonathan “Meres One” Cohen began curating the 5 Pointz Aerosol Art Center in an effort to provide a place where artists from around the city could come together to exhibit their work outdoors for the public—and to do it legally.

5 Pointz, an old abandoned warehouse just off the 7 subway line, the “Institute of Higher Burning,” has been an epicenter of graffiti, street art, and Hip Hop culture since its establishment by Cohen over 10 years ago. Owner of the building Jerry Wolkoff and his son David Walkoff have expressed plans to demolish the structure and erect high-rise residential towers.

45 Drug Induced Self Portraits

For several weeks artist Bryan Lewis Saunders conducted a bizarre but very interesting experiment. He took a different drug every day and made a portrait of himself under the influence.

One of my favourites, Psilocybin Mushrooms below.
