Pounds of gunpowder, yards of fuse, and piles of ash - and the resulting fire and explosions - have led to this!
The Wisconsin Union Art Directorate will present the explosion art of The American Gunpowder Artist, Stick Vega, at Gallery 1308 (Union South - Madison, WI). The show will include gunpowder paintings, drawings and fine art prints.
WUD art will host an opening reception Friday, June 13th from 6-8pm with food and refreshments. Vega will show about fifteen artworks which represent Vega's "Pop" Expressionism including some of his figurative and abstract work. A facebook link to the event can be found here.
"Gallery 1308 is a great space, run by great people, I am sure this will be a blast!", said Stick Vega.
The show will continue through July 29th.
Here are some updates from WUD:
The American Gunpowder Artist, Stick Vega, uses high speed fuse and gunpowder to produce his "pop expressionism" figurative and abstract paintings. In a blast, his recent explosion work depicts colorful animals, flowers, and explosive shapes. Stick's mission is, "the more gunpowder I use the less there is for killing people."
