Renowned spray paint artist Chor Boogie reveals a breathtaking body of work in Hieros Gamos. Aesthetic elements of the Rococo and Baroque periods as well as Madonna iconography are reinterpreted through the medium of spray paint and contemporary street art styles. The exhibition will feature color saturated emotional landscapes, alluring yet regal female forms, and large, captivating eyes. The artist’s mixed media creations premiering in Hieros Gamos are highly anticipated by critics and collectors, after having received international acclaim for his two dimensional work in murals and canvases.
Both opening nights will feature a live avant-garde ritual burlesque performance piece by performance artists Bast and Lady Eternal Love.
About the Artist:
Chor Boogie, a.k.a. Joaquin Lamar Hailey, is a critically acclaimed spray paint artist who’s visionary murals and art exhibitions have appeared all over the globe. Société Perrier recently honored him as being number three among the Top Ten U.S. Street Artists. He approaches his use of color as a form of therapy and visual medicine, and has been dubbed “the color shaman” by comrades and fans. He is recognized for having achieved a groundbreaking level of technical and emotional virtuosity in the medium of spray paint. “Having emerged, in part, from the world of ‘Graffiti Art,’ Chor profoundly expounds on the genre in style, technique, form, composition, and conceptual underpinnings, as he can no longer be simply categorized as such. Viewers often find it nearly unbelievable that his masterful works are created almost solely from spray paint."
