Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 08, 2012
René Garcia, Jr. returns to Project One with a new collection of sensational glitter works that celebrate the iconography of awesomeness. Badass is an unmistakable state of being defined by attitude, audacity, and authenticity. It is a title hard- earned, reserved for the strong. Don’t be fooled by poseurs. The exhibition opens on November 14 in San Francisco.
