Style Bombing: New works by Mario Gonzalez Jr.

January 19, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 12:00 am

Free

33 Contemporary Gallery in Chicago presents and extraordinary solo exhibition by Mario Gonzalez Jr. in concurrence with his curatorial project Has Beens and Wannabes opening simultaneously at the Zhou B Art Center. STYLE BOMBING features a range of new works created specific for this exhibition. Known for his unique street “styles” that incorporate a fusion of colorful letter forms, line drawing, paint drips and abstract monochromatic surfaces, Mario Gonzalez Jr. continues to expand the boundaries of his visual vocabulary. STYLE BOMBING denotes a well orchestrated yet spontaneous freestyle approach to art making in the manner of the graffiti writers. Using raw and reclaimed materials such as wood panels, old furniture pieces, crates, and door scraps, Mario Gonzalez Jr. tags each painting with confident strokes mastered through years of perfecting hand styles and letterforms.
