Featuring William Brakke

May 18 - July 14, 2018
*Opening Gallery Gala:
Friday, June 1st from 5-7pm

Join Brakke for an Aerosol Art Demoing Workshop at the CVA on Friday, June 1st from 10-2pm

Brakke uses aerosol paint and a series of intricate and original stencils to create deeply layered images. His fascination with personal human moments is reflected in each small decision in any given painting: from arranging the image, to creating the stencil, to choosing the color composition. At the core of his work is the belief that art is most engaging when it lives in the conflict of opposing ideas and engages the viewer
in an idea that was not previously understood.

Brakke draws inspiration from street artists, traditional artists, and writers. He believes beauty is a human calling; a richer, fuller concept than surface-level glamour or attractive form. Beauty is the
way to engage the drama of life.
