POSE | RUMBLE!! at Known Gallery

KNOWN GALLERY presents: POSE | Rumble!!

Known Gallery is please to present two Chicago based artists, graffiti based artist Pose and photographer KC Ortiz. Opening Reception will be held for the artists Saturday, May 22nd, 8-11pm. The Exhibition will be on display from May 22nd though to June 12th, 2010.


Pose currently lives and works in Chicago, he is a member of the acclaimed West Coast artist collective The Seventh Letter, as well as being a founder of his own Chicago based design and art firm We Are Supervision. He has traveled internationally on his own and with The Seventh Letter specifically to showcase his skills as one of the best graffiti artists out there. This is Pose's first solo exhibition at Known Gallery.

In this exhibition Pose investigates a traditional style of comic book illustration and painting, infusing it with his own recognizable twist. Complexly layered, his work is bursting at the seams, often stunning and confusing onlookers with an intense amount of intricate detail. In this body of work, Pose has translated his trademarks in his signature graffiti style, (classic cartoon characters, sign painting fonts, a flat graphic style, and vivid color choices) from the street to the studio, creating elaborate large- and small-scale paintings. These new works explore imagery figuration in bold ways, with traces of his personality... the struggle, humor, sarcasm, love, hate, and always a feverish push towards the new.
