The exhibition is on display from July 2nd to July 31st. In honor of PaperMonster’s solo exhibition, Vincent Michael Gallery will be hosting an opening reception Friday, July 2nd from 6pm to 9pm.
To highlight PaperMonster’s personal and artistic growth over the past few years, it was only fitting his solo exhibition with Vincent Michael Gallery be titled ‘PaperMonster Ate That Little Boy.’ PaperMonster’s current oeuvre has taken his signature female images and infused each piece with greater depth, meaning and emotive expression. Each piece is a beautiful combination of layered imagery, textures and colors conveying themes of love, anger, fear, passion and mystery. Several portraits are layered images of women and powerful animals; speaking to the strength, ferocity and power that each women carries within. By continually developing his distinct use of collage, PaperMonster has taken his striking ability to explore facial expressions to new levels.
Overall there is a delicate precision and balance in PaperMonster’s work between what is beautiful and his exploration of the internal struggles of women. PaperMonster invites his viewers to immerse themselves in each piece, “I want my viewer to explore, connect and diver deeper into what they are seeing. Each painting contains fragments that are personal, nostalgic and will lure you in. It is what you do when you are at that moment that is left up to you.” PaperMonster continues to be a leader in demonstrating the potential for stencil graffiti and the use of stencils as a powerful means of creating something beautiful and captivating. His work as been showcased in numerous exhibitions across the states, Art Basel Miami and has been featured in Juxtapoz Magazine, Abztract and Art Nouveau Magazine. We invite you to experience PaperMonster’s work at Vincent Michael Gallery on display from July 2nd – July 31st.
