This Friday, December 10th, Martin Wittfooth will be bringing a new body of work entitled Gardens to the Roq la Rue Gallery.

We recently saw a painting from Martin Wittfooth for his upcoming show at Roq La Rue and our jaws dropped – the phrase “next level” comes to mind. This beautiful new piece, “The Devil’s Playground”, will be part of a new body of work entitled “Gardens’ for the Seattle gallery in December. We’ll have more to follow but take a look at the show card after the jump and you may see a theme developing as hinted at by the title of the show.
Last weekend, the Laguna Art Museum opened their doors to crowds of art fans anxious to check out the newest exhibition – Art Shack. The group show included installations by artists like Mike Shine (featured), Martin Wittfooth, Kenny Scharf, Clayton Brothers (featured), and Jeff Gillette (who showed recently in LA) with a fantastic three-dimensional representation of his signature “slum” imagery. More photos after the jump but be sure to check out Hi-Fructose’s full photoset here.

We love his palette and choice of color – see for yourself first hand this weekend if you are in the area. Wittfooth will be showing alongside Chris Ryniak. […]
