KNOCKING YOU OUT WITH “SUMMER LOVIN” AT PARLOR GALLERY
 THE COMBINED FORCES OF CONTEMPORARY POP & STREET ARTISTS Asbury Park, NJ (JULY 1, 2015) Parlor Gallery is pleased to announce their upcoming curated Summer Group Exhibition “Summer Lovin” which features an explosive array of artists for whom the landscape of Pop Culture feeds their artistic drive and by doing so reflects the multi-layered visual experience we all live in. Parlor Gallery and the artists have curated a colorful, witty and contemplative collection of new works for this exhibit. Although working in different media and environments, all of the featured artists have been deeply inspired by the urban landscape. The work of the artist Indie184 is quickly becoming one of the most recognized both on the streets and in galleries and museums worldwide. Influenced by abstract expressionism and pop art, her paintings are raptures of colors and textures fused with her original graffiti, street art imagery and designs, juxtaposed with personal messages. In conjunction with her debut at Parlor, Indie184 will be painting a mural on the historic Asbury Park Boardwalk as part of the arts and mural initiative “Sea Change AP” which is co-curated by Parlor gallery and funded and sponsored by Madison Marquette.

Collaboration with Marvel + Netflix

I recently teamed up with the legendary MARVEL and NETFLIX for their upcoming series premiere of DAREDEVIL . A dream come true to have transformed the world of Daredevil with my own style.

For the #daredevilart piece, my theme is "Word on the Streets", capturing the essence of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil as a duel icon in the streets of Hell's Kitchen.  I used  my mixed media style, working  with graffiti, street art and pop art elements.  Utilizing the tags to communicate empowering messages to Daredevil in continuing his pursuit in destroying evil in the city.

Creating the graffiti tags and elements on paper, the final digital artwork was then printed for a billboard in the streets of Chicago.

Painting in the 'Reykjavik Hall of Fame'

Going to Reykjavik, my friend Sigrun already hooked me up to paint with another female artist there (more on my collaboration with her later). One of the great things about the graffiti culture and social media is that once you publicize that you are traveling anywhere in the world - other writers come forward and usually make their way to paint or organize a wall. Thanks to Dan from Montana Colors who hooked me up with CLONE and CASIO - Icelandic graffiti writers.The were really no graffiti supply shops in Reykjavik, I only heard of one which only sold limited belton black and white spraypaint, thats because they were going out of business. So the only source was to go to an art suppply store who only sold German Montana. The price of spraypaint was almost double of that in New York. Luckily for some discounts I was able to load up in vast array of colors for my first piece in Iceland! I went for the gold...
