Lot F Gallery is excited to announce Marka27's upcoming exhibition at their Boston space this fall. Opening Friday, September 30th, "Retro Native" will be the artist's first solo show at the gallery, and will feature a new body of paintings, installations, and original drawings with a pop culture twist. Transforming and fusing ancient cultural traditions into contemporary art, Marka27 creates pieces with Neo Indigenous style.
Dripping with nostalgia, the works reflect the artist's influences. From growing up in the 80's & 90's, to his mexican heritage, the artist is inspired by hip hop, street culture, cartoons, comics and fashion. Recently, the artist has returned to his roots and completed several mural projects with The Richmond Mural Project, Pow Wow Worcester and Detroit's Murals in the Market.
Born in Juarez, Mexico, and raised in Dallas, Texas, Marka27 began mastering the art of graffiti on the city streets before earning his BFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Becoming a household name, the artist is known for his “audio canvas” series, a mixed-media collection incorporating live sound as well as his MiniGods: Givers of Divine Sound©, a high-end line of designer vinyl toy speakers. Marka27's artwork has exhibited in galleries across the US, appeared in magazines, books and he has collaborated with several heavy-hitting brands.
"Retro Native" kicks off with an opening reception on Friday, September 30th from 7-11 pm, and is on view through October 28th, 2016. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
