Juan Francisco Casas "(HE)ARTBROKEN"
Juan Francisco Casas recreates photographs he’s taken as large scale, hyperreal ballpoint pen drawings. While compositions of this size have traditionally been used in art to commemorate royalty and historical events, Casas utilizes the medium to memorialize his personal and provocative exploits. Described as “art for the selfie generation,” his seductive portraits transform viewers into voyeurs, intrigued by what happened prior and after the snapshot was taken.August 31, 2016

The Kaleidoscopic World of Erika Mugglin
