‘Rise and Fall’ – Meggs at StolenSpace Gallery

meggs_jessuis_wood
StolenSpace Gallery presents ‘Rise and Fall’ a satirical solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Meggs. Following his residency and sold-out show at Inner State Gallery in Detroit last September, where he painted his largest mural to date at over 6,000 square feet, Meggs continues his perpetual fascination with dualism, urban decay, and finding beauty in tragedy. ‘Rise and Fall’ toys with current fractures in the social fabric of urban society, such as imploding over-indulgence, fallen idols, and the detriments of pop culture.

“Through all of the manufacturing and consumerism, we have moved away from more genuine, simple ideals such as community… and perhaps things that are better for us,” Meggs explains. “You begin to realize the discontinuity of certain childhood idealisms when you become an adult.”

In ‘Rise and Fall,’ Meggs combines light and colorful imagery with his unique, expressive, and energetic style. His technical use of color and movement fuse clean, bold, illustrative elements with intuitive, textural, and free flowing design. The exhibition will feature comic influences, natural elements, pop icon mash-ups, and abstract collaging on canvas, paper, wood panels, and comic book covers.

Opening February 6 at 6pm. StolenSpace Gallery

Featuring our first ever glitter screenprint, this is a milestone in VNA history and we’re pretty stoked with this collaboration with the Bristolian artist.
