About the artist: 

Sickboy is one of the leading artists to emerge from Bristol's infamous graffiti scene to worldwide recognition. Exploring form, shape and colour collide, humorous character based interventions create abstract and absurd realities in various media. In recent years, his work has migrated to digital space, challenging the bounds of our comprehension as concepts transition through physical space, medium and time.

With a legacy that reaches back to 1995, Sickboy was first recognised for his symbology and text based work on the streets of Bristol. The iconic red and yellow street logo 'The Temple’ as well as his ‘Save the Youth’ slogan have featured on walls and wheelie bins across the world. From these crude canvases, Sickboy has developed a fine studio practice exploring paint on canvas, sculpture and layered digital labyrinths. His groundbreaking London solo exhibition in 2008 was followed by an appearance in the Oscar nominated ‘Exit Through the Gift Shop’, with audacious stunts - including the caged heart installation dropped outside the Tate Modern - keeping him at the centre of discussion. In 2015, Sickboy established Fluorescent Smogg, a fine art production house realising groundbreaking immersive exhibitions and editions with their team of master craftsmen, technicians and designers.

About the artist:

David Choong Lee combines elements of graffiti, collage, graphic design, portraiture, and classical realism. He was born in Seoul, Korea in 1966 and moved to the US in 1993 to pursue traditional fine art at the Academy of Art. His first major body of work depicted San Francisco's homeless in the Tenderloin, then evolved to depict the diversity of San Francisco's population. Many of the city's recognizable characters have shown up in breathtaking pieces on his signature wine and cigar boxes. In recent years, Lee has begun to shift focus from the figure to the abstract and geometric. These two styles come together in impressive assemblages that have shown in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Denver, Tucson, Canada, and Korea.

Anamorphic Portraiture

September 24 - October 29, 2021

Mirus Gallery brings the acclaimed Anamorphic Portraiture exhibition to Denver opening September 24, 7-10pm.

About the Exhibition:

Anamorphic Portraiture is a dynamic exhibition featuring acclaimed international and regional contemporary artists working within the realm of disrupted portraiture. We currently live in a world wrought with overstimulation, rapid consumption, and mental illness that often causes one to question what defines an individual’s sense of identity. Science has shown that identity is largely tied to perceptual and neurological representation of facial features. This exhibition brings into question what part of identity is brought to surface or manipulated when the facial features of a figure are morphed, de/re-constructed, or masked.  The artists exhibiting in this group consistently use methods of abstraction to create portraits representing facial tensions of inner conflict, emotional confusion, mental anguish, existential dread or even psychosis.

Featured Artists:

Alexis Matta, Ali Asir, Cristian Blanxer, David Crunelle, Dourone, Einar Ōlafsson, Eva Rdamonti, Fintan Switzer, Gera1, Li Hill, Michalis Goumas, Pablo Merchante, Riso Chan, Shintaro Kago

Opening Reception: Friday September 24, 7-10pm

On View Through:  October 29, 2021
