Thad Kellstadt‘s acrylic paintings possess a sort of hipster-esque aesthetic. I find his Tit Mullet (as seen above) in particular to be very amusing. Girl is stylin’!
Brecht Vandenbroucke creates beautiful drawings and paintings filled with endless narrative and a dash of humor.
English artist Tom Hovey creates beautiful raw illustrations with watercolor.
San Francisco based painter David Bayus creates beautiful mixed media collages.
In their inaugural unveiling, Dethkills will display 21 pieces that have been meticulously crafted over the past year. Each piece demonstrates their intricate and unconventional uses of “wet-in-wet” washes and dry brush technique, in conjunction with latex and acrylic paints.
This collection will display a group of works entitled “The 27 Club,” featuring iconic images of musicians and artists, such as Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, who were taken well before their time. Painted in the stark contrast of black and white, these legends are given new life.
The exhibition also includes a series of smaller works that illuminate the intricacies of everyday items, like a phone booth that you pass on your daily route or a box of your grandfather’s medals in the attic; relics of a not so distant, yet highly divergent, past.
The first 100 people at the exhibit will receive a handmade one-of-a-kind Dethkills photozine, with silk-screened cover and silk-screened insert, that showcases the process and progression of each piece in the show from beginning to end.
Opening Saturday November 13th 7-11pm

Massachusetts based artist Sydney Hardin’s work questions the relationship between the female gender and the media and asks the viewer why over simplified representations of female sexuality are aimed at male and female consumers alike. I am really enjoying her work, not to mention the name of her website! ( http://www.giantvagina.com/ )
Brendan Flanagan paints twisting, twisted landscapes and figures that are at once growing and decaying.
Danish painter Peter Ravn successfully utilizes depth and color in his paintings. I am especially intrigued by his series of business men contorted in obscure positions.
