People: American Graffiti

Art Gallery Opening1.jpg

A few weeks ago I attended Roxi Monica Welborn’s art showing which was amazing, you can follow the link ROX(I) to see more of her work. However, in the adjacent gallery space they were featuring veteran artist Bruce Porter.

What I loved most about his work is the obvious bold colors and aggressive nature of his pieces, secondly the paintings felt very familiar and nostalgic as if you had seen the images before, but when you get closer they are abstract and unique. It was like premeditated cartoon graffiti. I am no art expert but I loved it.
