AM had the chance to stop by Joshua Liner GalleryÂ to check out two great shows: Unexpected Occurrences by Oliver VernonÂ and Unfinished Business by CrashÂ (previewed). Both of these artists took us by surprise with their unique styles. Crash has long been regarded as one of the pioneers of graffiti art, but we noticed his worksÂ broughtÂ a mix of Lichtenstein meets the streets. His raw yet pop-y imagesÂ leaped out to grabÂ our attention as we passed by each painting.Â
OliverÂ VernonÂ had a very interesting mix of geometric conformity vs. the forces of nature. “Organized Chaos”Â was the term that came to mindÂ as we pondered hisÂ paintings. Using various mediums and techniques, these detailed paintings have an energy that draws your eyes in every direction.Â Both the showsÂ wereÂ definitely worthÂ ourÂ trekÂ up to Chelsea, so we recommend that you hurry and check out the show before it ends this weekend.
All the pictures after the jump.Â
