The Character Studies Exhibition New York

"McCaig-Welles Gallery in Brooklyn, New York City presents “The Character Studies,�? a group exhibition opening May 8th, 2009 co-curated by Andrea von Bujdoss (�?Queen Andrea�?). The exhibition runs through June 1st, 2009. This diverse and vibrant exhibition showcases the new works of 5 prolific illustrators and urban artists within the context of intensive letter, cartoon and portraiture explorations. The bodies of work on display by the exhibiting artists Ewok 5MH, Cycle, Siloette, Queen Andrea and gmo$ represent their strong personal aesthetics derived from significant experience in the realms of graffiti, street art, skateboard culture, cartooning and illustration. Their works will be complimented by custom art installations on the gallery walls, painted by the artists. Both letter and caricature art have strong roots in graffiti culture, illustration and traditional graphic design. The attempt to master a personal artistic “style�? is a coveted status. The exhibition promises to be an exciting juxtaposition of styles in celebration of this boisterous yet subversive artform, presenting a notable collection of elaborate portraiture, witty cartooning, collage, stencil art, signpainter lettering, graffiti and illustration works. Limited edition signed art prints will be available for sale. “The Character Studies�? is sponsored by Molotow/Belton, the leading brand in superior
quality spray paint"
