OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY 1 OCTOBER 2018 6-9 PM
EXHIBITION RUNS TILL 14 OCTOBER
Returning from Sydney, fine artist Jason Howe conducts his 2nd solo show at At Large Gallery Melbourne, bringing down his large portfolio of over 200 sketches/drawings/doodles/characters/abstractions/ideas & designs for his paintings.
As you ponder his bold, fluid and flowing marker line drawings you will see through to the ballpoint pen scribbles, which are the origins, ideas and lines that spark a sketch. Influenced by cartoons & animation, hip hop, the graffiti art characters of Vaughn Bode & Kenny Scharf and contemporary American pop surrealists Greg Simpkins, Jeff Soto, Joe Ledbetter and Alex Pardee his work will delight, humor, mess with your head & make your mind wonder.
Drawn on a patchwork of recycled stickers, Jason breaks the boundaries of the portrait/landscape style of his sketchbooks to bring you a peak behind the scenes and behind the eyes of a practicing, prolific post-pop hip-hop doodling surrealist. As well as all original drawings being for sale, Jason will be selling prints, hand painted shirts and caps and will also have a showing of his experimental, colourful animated music clips.
