Shades of Grey is proud to present their second art show entitled VelvetVision: a far-out exhibition of sci-fi, horror and comic book portraits masterfully painted on black velvet by North Carolina artist, Bruce White. The VelvetVision exhibition features 28 entirely original works by Bruce, the majority of which have been created exclusively for this engagement. Iconic characters such as Captain Kirk, Iron Man, Darth Vader, Doctor Who, Frankenstein’s Monster and many more will be on display from February 18th – March 18th, 2011 and the artist will be in attendance for the closing night reception held on March 18th at Shades of Grey.
About the Artist:
North Carolina native Bruce White is an accomplished tattoo and fine artist. Bruce has been tattooing for over 13 years and has recently turned his artistic eye towards an often-underappreciated medium; black velvet. Bruce feels that working with velvet gives his paintings a degree of visual contrast that cannot be replicated by painting on any other surface and that, quite frankly, Elvis and Jesus are not the only icons of the world worthy of being softly immortalized on a velvety canvas. Instead, Bruce has chosen this medium to channel his admiration for many of pop culture’s most memorable characters. More of Bruce’s art can be seen on his website.
