Continuing to advance the notion of spray paint as a fine art medium, Brooklyn-based artist Stickymonger will curate the second in a series of exhibitions exploring the beauty, range and messaging of spray paint as an art form. Spray Painterly 2 will open at Allouche Gallery on October 13th.
Feelings of loneliness, fear and the unknown have engrossed the globe since the outbreak of COVID-19 back in March 2020. The pandemic can take its toll, pushing people further from others and leaving many feeling like they are living in a surreal world. Stickymonger conveys these difficult emotions across her latest body of work, but also incorporates the unpredictable, magical moments of everyday life to instill hope and positivity amid the difficult circumstances posed by the pandemic. These otherworldly pieces will fill New York City’s Allouche Gallery as part of a solo exhibition entitled “Still Smiling.”……Keith Estiler
