The Primrose Path... At Brett Wesley Gallery...

There is only one word to describe the next show at BWG... SAAAWEEET!!! I make absolutely no apologies when I say I love all art urban. Whether it is produced by your local aerosol artist in a storm drain or by any artist who is influenced by the urban landscape; the art is raw, the art has soul and in many instances the art is wrong in such a good way. In the case of Luke and Juan, they take what is simply the cute, lovable and cuddly and drop it smack in the middle of brawl. You definitely wont find these "teddy bears" in your mamma's toy store.

I was first introduced to Juan Muniz at Place Gallery a couple of years ago and immediately got excited about by his work. At first it reminded me of the cute little character of Norwegian electronic music troupe Royksopp's video Poor Leno, but as you look deeper this cute little guy seems to place himself in what could become an unfortunate situation. With Luke Chueh on the other hand he takes it a step further and allows his little characters to go all the way so-to-speak... But I don't want to give too much away and allow you folks to come down and see the show for yourself.

The Primrose Path opens on Preview Thursday, February 2nd and on First Friday, February 3rd...

You don't need to be an art snob to enjoy art so come Downtown and remember "artists make great pets."
