East End Studio Gallery opening reception: "Tastes Like Candy, Kicks Like Whiskey" by Blue130


"Tastes like Candy, Kicks like Whiskey" is a solo exhibition that features the recent work of multimedia artist Blue130. Inspired by her illustrative and graffiti background, Blue's whimsical works present a pop explosion of lush vibrant colors that comprise strong female characters. Her tongue in cheek creations are fun, quirky and capture a balance between femininity, playfulness and power.

Heavily referenced are her obsessions with comics, pin up art, horror movies, story books, metal music, tattoos, make-up and high heels. Blue's creations feature captivating textile backgrounds and charming details that come to life with ribbon, metals, paper cut-outs, aerosol paint and lively fabrics. Throughout her work are these layered elements that entice and beckon the viewer for a closer look.

On view through May 30.
