Painting in the street allowed me to take my future more seriously as an “artist”, it was a turning point in my life. Ever since I laid hands on my first spray can, my road changed direction.  –  Dulk from Street Art United States Interview

Opening Reception of “Flourish” at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum

Last weekend FLOURISH  at Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum curated by Thinkspace Gallery opened to a positive reception. We’d like to thank all that came to the exhibition from all over Arizona and beyond to support the opening night. We were so thrilled to see over 1,200 art lovers come through the doors of the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum in the beautiful Mesa Arts Center located in the heart of downtown Mesa, Arizona.

The site-specific ephemeral murals from Esao Andrews and Nosego along with the site-specific installation from Felipe Pantone are reason enough to visit, if not for the incredible group show featuring close to 100 artists from around the globe. A great introduction to the burgeoning New Contemporary Art Movement for those new to this scene and an incredible survey of some of the hottest artists out there for those that are in the know and already familiar. This landmark exhibition remains on view through August 6th, so please be sure to pay it a visit this summer.

For more information on the exhibition and to view the available pieces from the show visit the Thinkspace Gallery website.

How would you describe your work?

My work is an appropriation of different styles and techniques that brings my compositions and color together. How I do this is I use my computer as a tool to create compositions that don’t physically exists in the world and through that I am able to open windows into virtual or digital spaces and create possibilities that are endless.
