Spoke Art gallery in San Francisco is pleased to present “The Pinks” a new exhibition of original paintings by Florida, USA-based artist Scott Scheidly. “The Pinks” explores the cultural and social implications of color and how the predefined notions that accompany these perceptions can alter one’s identity and subsequent world view. By incorporating either hyper-masculinized or historically infamous figures, Scheidly further drives the point home, making a mockery of his subjects though biting socio/sexual satire.
