MF Gallery is proud to present the collected works of one of their own. "Living In Interesting Times" is an exhibition of the drawings, paintings, prints and sculptures of Drew Maillard. Drew works in his own distinct style, which he creates with cross-hatching. He can spend days or even up to months on a single drawing, hatching tiny little marks with a pen.

"There is an ancient Chinese curse that goes "May you live in interesting times." Drew Maillard was born and raised in America in the last quarter of the 20th century… A fascinating era to be sure."

Drew is a product of his environment. Nature and nurture; habitat and conditioning combined. Drew as a young adult divided his time between comic books, horror and sci-fi films, and fantasizing about girls he didn’t talk to. There was also Punk Rock and L.S.D.. After leaving his hometown in Upstate NY he spent some time in the army. He received his Bachelor Of Fine Arts degree from SVA in 2000. His life experiences and travel is what inspires Drew’s "crazy crazy" artwork.

At the Opening Party, (On Saturday March 31st, 7-10pm) Drew Maillard will be signing and drawing customized faces on special exclusive prints for only $30 each. He will also provide markers and give the audience a chance to customize their own prints. Refreshments will be served. Admission is Free and open to all ages.

 

"Drew Maillard: Living In Interesting Times” will be open by appointment until May 5th, 2012.

All of the art will also be available for viewing and purchasing online at: www.MFgallery.net

    You've seen Cleon Peterson's Balance of Power before, but not like this. Case Studyo have collaborated with the artist to create a 3D version of the painting rendered in glossy, white porcelain.

    I had to do a double-take when I saw this email in my inbox this morning. Cult film director, comic book author, and Twitter philosopher Alejandro Jodorowsky is being immortalized in resin by Unbox Industries.

    These glass sculptures are far more interesting than that shitty Crystal Skulls movie.
