Mickael Broth and Ryan De La Hoz @ Double Break, San DiegoJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 15 Feb 2012
Opening Friday, February 17th is a two-person show at San Diego's Double Break Gallery with Mickael Broth and Ryan De La Hoz. During a recent studio visit with Ryan De La Hoz, we mentioned this show coming up. Together the two artists bring together a collection of paintings, drawings, and collages that provide a graphic and illustrative stylistic conversation. Broth comes from a background in graffiti and skateboarding, both having a strong presence in his work. Broth will be presenting a variety pieces on paper from the last two years as well as two new zines, one cataloguing the works on paper and the other being a complete alphabet of intricately drawn lettering. Ryan De La Hoz, who we've noted more than once as one of our favorites, will be presenting works investigating themes of loss, hope, isolation, myth, magic, and the pursuit of happiness through simplified yet powerfully symbolic imagery. Come by Double Break on Friday and look at the art and hang out with some people.
