Previews: Delia Brown – Last Exit: Punta Junta @ Martha Otero Gallery

Opening tonight at Martha Otero Gallery is a new show by Delia Brown. Entitled Last Exit: Punta Junta, this exhibition is a continuation of her Guerilla Lounging Project where parties are hosted in the luxuriously pimped out playgrounds of the upper class. The difference is that the ones depicted living it up are those of the middle and lower classes. Delia works during these few hours of decadence and fantasy to capture these unique situations with her brush. The show runs until April 14th, so stop by if […]

Our friends over at the Backwoods Gallery recently sent over this video that they put together as an artist profile for Japanese artist Usugrow. If you remember, we covered the calligrapher and painter’s show at the gallery along with fellow Shinganist artist, Toshikazu Nozaka back in July of last year.
