Second Saturday Art Walk: Six Must-See Shows This Weekend

Categories: Art
MAY ART WALK SHIENBAUMedited200.JPEG
Street Art the rage at Shienbaum
Art Walk is heating up in Wynwood again, and with it comes a contrasting clash of imagery. You'll see protestors. You'll see riot police. And you'll see an addled Britney Spears pummeling a Disney legend with her umbrella. This Saturday, starting at 6 p.m., culture vultures can swoop into a raft of new exhibits riffing on urban demolition and life's fragile nature.

At the recently opened Gregg Shienbaum Fine Art you can even experience the transformation of a graffiti rat into a polished gallery artist. This past January, Shienbaum spied the local street artist who operates under the name Clandestine Culture wheat pasting posters of riot cops under the cover of darkness.

Since first approaching the masked man who told Shienbaum he preferred to remain anonymous, the dealer has gone on to sell his posters to collectors as far away as Paris.

Catch the nascent talent's first work in a gallery this weekend along with our picks for must see shows.

MAY ART WALK SHIENBAUM HARDACRE.jpg
Clandestine Culture
This local street artist's popular attention-grabbing pieces will be on view in a group offering that includes Russell Young's image of a sobbing Marilyn Monroe; Sarah Hardacre's scintillating nudes inspired by vintage men's magazines juxtaposed against the phallic outlines of modern concrete skylines; and Magnus Gjoen's turgid bazooka, human skulls, and artillery glossed over with renaissance masterpieces by Titian, Michelangelo, and Tiepolo. Shienbaum also showcases a mix of pop art masters such as Warhol, Lichtenstein, Johns, and Rauschenberg, along with urban street art by names like Ron English and Shepard Fairey.

MAY ART WALK BLACK SQUAREedited.JPEG
Hobnobbing at the Garden of Earthly Delights
Taking a poke at Hieronymus Bosch's famous masterpiece, Colombia's Anibal Vallejo tackles the sins of contemporary society with hilarious embroidery pieces on canvas he later paints on. He skewers the banality of mass media with works depicting a bald Britney Spears throttling Mickey Mouse with an umbrella and a drunken Paris Hilton dragging herself across the asphalt pavement during a wardrobe malfunction.
