Mighty Tanaka is proud to present: HYBRIDISM, the premier show within our new DUMBO project/gallery space.
There's a growing creative movement that we've dubbed HYBRIDISM: a blend of both street art and fine art - a hybrid - as the raw meets the refined. It is the juxtaposition of genres, which both compliments and conflicts; the balance between these otherwise artistic opposites.
HYBRIDISM, the show, captures a collection of both twisted fine art and underground street art in a span of mediums: vivid photography, collage, and rich oil & acrylic paintings on everything from canvas to found wood.
From classic oil paintings of alcohol-blurred nightlife, a squirrel riding a two-headed goat, and a trippy diorama of the industrialization age, to street-style satanic mummies, tribal paintings on book covers, and graffiti-influenced silkscreens on newspapers - HYBRIDISM displays the atypical and the urban within one space.
