This Halloween, the City of Angles might as well be renamed the City of Demons in honor of Neck Face’s newest solo, Into Darkness. In what seems to be a perennial affair with Miami-based OHWOW, the notoriously enigmatic street artist will conjure the nightmarish iconography synonymous with the fall holiday – as well as his own art – in his trademarked sinister, satirical fashion. Just last year, the artist terrorized South Beach with his ghoulish imagery in a dramatic exhibit, comprised of works on paper and wood as well as a show-stopping installation of steel sculptures encased in coffins.
It would appear there is no better night to experience Neck Face’s art than when cheap costumes abound, jack-o-lanterns burn bright and debauchery is encouraged. If OHWOW’s previous nomadic pop-up shows are any indication, with a hugely successful Scott Campbell show that shut down the streets of NYC this past summer (covered), Southern California art fans should be shaking in their boots for the LA native’s homecoming. Stay tuned for further coverage of this bone chilling event..and perhaps even more Halloween euphemisms.
