All in Painting

Conor Harrington: Head of State / State of Head

Hungry Boy Books and legendary painter, Conor Harrington have teamed up for an exciting new painting and print project; Head of State/ State of Head.

This new series of paintings and prints are bit different that the large scale oil paintings and outdoor murals that we are used to seeing from Conor. The series is divided in half, with five blue paintings and five red, the traditional colors of opposing political parties, gang culture, and the corners of boxing rings. From the 10 original paintings a series of 10 prints have been made into a boxset. Each boxset comes a hardback book of the series. Visit Hungry Boy Books to learn more about the project and how to get it.

Jillian Evelyn: 'Solitary' at Artists Republic Gallery

Artists Republic just opened Jillian Evelyn's first solo exhibition with the gallery, Solitary. In this exhibition Jillian created balanced and poppy compositions with the man subjecting being contorted female figures, forcing them to fit within the constraints of her canvas. Perhaps a commentary on trying to fit into the norms of society. The exhibition will run through October 1, 2017.
