Urban aesthetic – an exhibition with Ricky Lee Gordon (aka Freddy Sam)
Worldart is hosting an exhibition of street art inspired paintings by Ricky Lee Gordon (aka Freddy Sam) and Paul Senyol from 20 August to 3 September 2011 at its Cape Town gallery in Church Street.
Although Ricky Lee Gordon’s work can be seen on walls in Woodstock here in Cape Town and places as diverse as New York City and a village in Gambia, the opportunity to experience his work on canvas is a rare occasion and one to look forward to.
Paul Senyol is perhaps better-known for his work as a mixed media artist and he has participated in group exhibitions in SA and abroad. A not so well-known fact is that his work has also on occasion featured on walls in and around Cape Town and is strongly influenced by the freedom and design associated with skateboarding and punk rock.
Both these artists have just returned from excursions abroad – Ricky Lee Gordon (aka Freddy Sam) from mural projects in the USA and Paul Senyol from a residency in Finland.
The exhibition will consist of four large paintings – one work by each artist and two collaborations.
Venue: Worldart Gallery, 54 Church Street, Cape Town
Dates: 20 August – 3 September 2011
Gallery hours: Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm and Saturday 10am -1pm. Closed on Sundays.
