Just this Friday night, Dutch painter Joram Roukes opened his solo show at the B15 Gallery in Copenhagen entitled Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness. Based thematically on the influential Smashing Pumpkins album of the same name, the series of stunning new paintings features surreal creatures formed with a piecemeal compilation of other scenes and components. This technique enables the former street artist to create pieces that have a dynamic feel to them and when accented with vibrant colors, it results in some of the most refined work we have seen from […]
