Artist Greg Gossel and White Walls gallery invited us by to take a preview of his new show Sleepwalking which runs from June 10th – July 3rd, 2010. We are delighted to say that this some of Gossel’s best work to date.
Combining a multitude of images, vintage tabloids, and magazines, Gossel creates works that are visual candy for the eyes and hold deeper context upon closer inspection. With strong elements of Pop Art, the artist is reinventing the genre and making it accessible to a whole new generation of art lovers.
