Shooting Gallery presents Reflexive by Poesia

Country:

Categories:

Shooting Gallery is pleased to present the new work of Poesia in his latest exhibition titled, Reflexive, featuring large-scale works on canvas and collage. The opening reception will be Saturday, August 16 from 7 pm to 11 pm. The exhibit will be on view through September 6,  2014 and is free and open to the public.

San Francisco-based and self taught “graffuturist” artist, Poesia, was born in 1975 and has been making his mark on wall and canvas for the past 25 years. Whether he is mirroring the work of old masters, composing collages, or creating gestural abstract paintings, Poesia’s work consistently carries the same sense of immediacy as seen in contemporary street art. With this concept in mind, Poesia created “Graffuturism,” a league of street artists that value the urgency and directness of graffiti, as well as fast paced and physical aspects involved with street art, but have evolved beyond their initial roots.

Poesia’s work is always eye catching. Whether it’s a sense of urgency or excitement found within his expressive paintings, his work continually directs an instant involvement with the members of his audience. These crucial qualities are seen in graffiti, and are also what Graffuturism was founded on.
