The Art of Kyle Willis

at Bohemia AG Gallery
The work of artist, illustrator, writer and pop-culture provocateur, Kyle Willis will be featured in a solo exhibition organized by curator Rolando Chang Barrero which opens with a reception on August 8th, 2015 from 6-9 pm  at Bohemia AG Gallery located in burgeoning NOWO Art District at 536 Northwood Road, West Palm Beach Florida 33407.

NORTHWOOD VILLAGE—“It makes complete sense to bring the challenging and provocative imagery created by Kyle Willis of Jacksonville, Florida to West Palm Beach,” says Rolando Chang Barrero. Placing the Kyle Willis exhibition at Paul Klov’s Bohemia AG Gallery is a perfect match for both Paul Klov and Kyle Willis are mainstays of a community of artists and gallerists committed to new art forms without forsaking the traditional.

The Art of Kyle Willis explores history and popular culture in a series of madmen  portraits that includes Gothic writer Edgar Allan Poe as well as meth-head icon Jesse Pinkman of Breaking Bad.
In regards to his work, Willis says, “There is a fair share of anguish and madness in my work with no notion of being subtle. Being a huge dork at heart shines through in my work, which is mostly fanboy nerdcore with a splash of geekery. My paintings show my attraction to pairing colors that don't necessarily complement one another, and it brings a certain electricity to the canvas; a comforting tradeoff for my lack of any formal training.
