Solo Show

Urban Soule: Portraits,Patterns and Pochoir
-A Solo Show- 
For this Gallery exhibit I created an array of patterns and portraits by incorporating modern and traditional use of paper cutting (Pochoir), hand applied textures, various paints such as aerosol, latex and acrylics to make my colorful, thought provoking artwork. My images will range from Queen Elisabeth to Ancient Buddhist Mandalas along with Graffiti and Endangered Animals. Come see me (and my biggest solo show for 2014) at the Opening Reception April 10th from 5-10pm during the Kirkland art walk.
