Starting 2017 With DENIAL!

The new year is starting off right with a group of art exhibits and art fairs underway in Miami, FL.  Last week the opening of "Anger Management" by Canadian artist DENIAL at WYN 317 drew a full house at the Wynwood gallery where viewers took in a variety of  contemporary pop-art themes that ultimately make fun of our insane world of consumerism.

Based in Windsor Ontario, DENIAL spends much of the year traveling and exhibiting throughout Canada and USA, having done solo shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Toronto and Vancouver - now adding Miami to his list.

In 2000 he adopted the moniker ‘DENIAL’ as a means of poking fun at advertising, politics and media messages that contemporary society is often ‘in denial’ about.   Since then he has maintained an ongoing global street-campaign of over 500, 000 stickers, placards and murals, using the alpha-numeric characters ‘D3N!@L’. Intended as a conceptual means of marketing absurdism, DENIAL also challenges traditional notions of graffiti and public art through his bold and often satirical visual subversions.

The exhibit runs through February 9th at the gallery, see the bottom of the post for more information.
