Vertical Gallery Presents - Hebru Brantley

June 4, 2015

The upcoming event for June at the Vertical Gallery showcases Hebru Brantley with the theme Memoirs of the Minumum Wage.

 

In his visual survey of growing up in middle-class America, Brantley will show sketches, watercolors, paintings and sculptures that incite us to challenge the norm and question that on which we place value in society.

 

Inspired by his 1980’s Chicago upbringing, Brantley’s work touches on tough subjects with an affable approach, telling his stories through youthful characters and their adventures. Brantley’s pieces can be described as pop infused contemporary art inspired by Japanese anime and the bold aesthetics of street art pioneers Jean-Michel Basquiat, KAWS, and Keith Haring.

June 6 – 28, 2015

Opening reception Saturday, June 6, 6-10pm.
