Buff Monster presents “Beyond The Pink”, his fourth solo exhibition taking place at Corey Helford Gallery. For “Beyond The Pink”, Buff Monster creates a new series of acrylic-on-panel works. Presenting his works in a larger and more detailed context than before, the artist revisits his classic ice cream and maraschino cherry imagery with an eyeful of fresh inspiration.
“This new body of work is influenced by the history of Western art that I saw throughout Europe. My time at the Louvre viewing Renaissance paintings was truly inspiring. The National Gallery in London had some amazing pieces as well. And then visiting the Tate Modern was a bit of a shock after seeing nothing but classical paintings, but the pop stars like Lichtenstein and Warhol still get my pulse racing,” Buff Monster adds.
Upstairs in the loft, a vibrant series of flattened metal spray cans customized by Buff Monster will be on display. Open to the public, the reception for “Beyond The Pink” will take place on Saturday, September 4th from 7PM to 10PM, and the show will be on view until September 22nd, 2010.
