Opening: The Fake History of the World

Pop Life // Monday, June 15, 2015
Part art opening, part performance art: receptions at Daniel Rolnik Gallery stands above the rest in sheer goofiness. Friday's show had paper towel rolls dispensing penis drawings, bags of fake cocaine, and a zine of nude selfies. There was also traditional media -paintings and drawings- but all still tongue in cheek. Stop by and see a light-hearted gallery like none other.

Surreal and Absurd History by Paco Pomet

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 15, 2015
The histories that Paco Pomet paints are absurd, bizarre, surreal, and humorous. Just when you think you are looking at a simple realistic painting, you notice that the man in the background has a woman's legs and is posed a little too sexy for his early 1900's facial hair. The Grenadian artist just posted a bunch of new works that were painted in 2012, and we got a kick out of each one.
