I will have several new paintings available at this group show, including the one above "Pure Magic", 24 x 30 inches, mixed media on cotton, 2015.

 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.

Here are the rest of the photos of my day painting with Swoon. The images she chose for our wall, in the Bronx, are portraits of girls from the 160 Girls Project in Kenya and the artwork within them are actual drawings by the young girls. The 160 Girls project is a legal initiative that aims to achieve justice and protect against rape for all girls in Kenya. I had the honor to paint my colorful bubble letter with these powerful and meaningful images by Swoon. It is really inspiring to work with an artist who always projects human rights so beautifully into her work.
