“Love, Lust & Desire” is a solo art exhibit that expresses socially conscious and self-educating views on pop culture. The art show takes place in Chicago at Elephant Room Gallery. People have been fooling themselves into thinking money equals happiness for thousands of years. This body of work will capitalize on the statement. This show will expose the true meaning how art controls the mind, displaying mainstream images in a new light.
Money is something we all want and work for but sometimes praised beyond what it should, when it’s generally accepted as payments for goods and services. The empowerment of finances cripples the mind to believing weird ideologies. This body of work addresses issues that people are afraid to talk about. I want each piece of work to express what many people feel but not confidant enough to address. The work speaks volume by mixing images of popular culture and raising the awareness of materialism, capitalism producing social conscious and self-educating art.
My past works show graffiti art and I wanted to create a body of work to reach the masses. This collection of ideas and paintings permeates the everyday lives of the society. In the current climate of our economy I wanted to express my visual voice by showing Americas success story. As I show my work to fellow artists and critics I get the feeling my paintings will become an epidemic.
