Art Show time!




I've been lucky to be chosen to submit work for an upcoming show at the Nucleus gallery based on Harajuku culture and dress. I'm super humbled to be part of such a fun show and to have work on the walls with other great artists and some of my colleagues. The show isn't until August so I got these done pretty early but I couldn't wait! I based them on puns on the word Fruits (from the book about Harajuku culture) so here we have paintings done on the puns " Canned Fruits", "Rotten Fruits" and "Fruits Tray". Come check out the show if you are in town! I'll have more updates as we get closer to the date of the actual show.

Yo Kristen, you use color good and I like your style. Like; if Jamie Hewlett and Gustav Klimt did it, then had a blond baby what got stuck in the sixties and made cartoons. Peace

It was neat seeing all three of these at Nucleus! I especially like the dudes with the bat wings in Fruits Tray and Rotten Fruits ... congrats on getting them sold!

I made a little video of the opening reception which shows all three pieces. Please enjoy!
