Justin Lovato’s work is heavily influenced by video games and comic books, so many of his paintings have a dark fantasy quality. Lovatos time as a graffiti artist influenced him to incorporate the current political climate and urban life into his art. Many of the creatures he paints are animal hybrids that seem to be at peace or in some sort of distress. Texture and collage also play a large part in his work; this gives his pieces a rich, antique feel.
As if that wasn’t enough, Aphrodizia (Yoko K.) will be performing in the front gallery on the day of the opening!
The exhibit opening is on December 14, 2007 at the Art Whino Gallery. For more info. Visit Art Whino online.
