The Gallery Closing for Austra will be on Friday, December 28th.
The Rezident program will continue beginning in February 2019.
Rezident is an arts initiative brought to you by Lo Rez Brewery & Taproom – curated by Pilsen Outpost – that contributes to the community of Pilsen by celebrating one local artist a month with live music, craft beer, and grassroots fundraising. Rezident was created to support local Chicago artists by providing them with a safe and lively space to present their work, while also featuring local galleries such as Pilsen Outpost.
ABOUT THE SHOW
A mix-n-match collection of characters and instances from Austy World, the long running cartoon in my head. This chapter is based on “Los Malditos Vicios”.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
My name is Austra, I am a working artist and Chicago native. With years of painting and drawing to fill the voids in my life, I’ve fallen into the place where I am painting my happiness into existence. A lot of the work is colorful and stimulating but almost always has a multifaceted meaning. Some of the characters are shown to be forcing smiles or holding on to “Los malditos vicios” while others are seen as perfectly sweet and happy, not everything is as it seems.
