Ever walk into an art gallery, see something like a pile of beer cans tied together with piano wire floating in a puddle of soup, and wonder what the fuck is so artful about it? Maybe you'd be more into illustration. It's what local monkey proliferator Krave describes as "art that tells a story, that conveys a concept, that is literal and not abstract. Mostly character-based stuff." Basically, if you're into cartoons, graffiti, and surrealism, you'll probably enjoy a new shoe titled "Illustrated."
The show opens this Friday at the Bakehouse Art Complex and features Krave, Hugo Patao, Luis Diaz, Jean Paul Mallozzi, and Mike Rivamonte. It's a sort of illustrative Wu Tang Clan bringing their varying styles together in an aesthetic show of force.
Mondays-Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: Oct. 8. Continues through Nov. 1, 2010
