CASSIUS FOULER "Painting is the curse of the drinking class"
Opening Reception Sat. Feb. 8th 7-11pm
Pandemic is pleased to Announce an Exhibition of Paintings by NY based artist Cassius Fouler:
Raised upstate and relocated to the city, Cassius Fouler is known for a wide array of visual styles in his work. Infusing elements of contemporary, expressionism, iconography and original cartoonism intertwined with graffiti based text while also involving architectural properties. He displays hyper color paintings rich with a vibe heavy in chaotic turmoil. Visually challenging the viewers perception of their everyday routine and the city that surrounds them, he creates a relatable scene but one which can leave you perplexed after viewing. His unmistakable Characters and iconic images that surround tell many a story of the city. Living ones life moment to moment, the flaws of starving artistry, gentrification, humility, decadence, anger, sadness, inebriation and peril…
Over the years Fouler has shown in several galleries in New York and surrounding cities, created several large scale public murals and sculptures both legally and illegally, while constantly continuing to paint and create in the studio to no end. The ephemeral nature of his street work is incorporated brilliantly into his studio paintings. Whether viewed on a rooftop, scrawled across a wall, or hanging in a gallery, his style is distinct and undeniably original and alluring. For this exhibition we will be attempting to harness the raw, captivating sense of beauty and pandemonium that surrounds the artist and his work, landing it gracefully between the walls of our warehouse.
The artist will be showing paintings, drawings, prints and wood cut works...
If you are familiar with the work of Stikman then you know he is renowned for using clever and enticing items to convey his intricate artwork. Sticks, signs, stickers, playing cards, bricks, tires, books, board games...... the list goes on and on. But despite the amount of work he has affixed around the planet in the last 2 decades, actually owning an original is a rarity for most, making these exclusive punch cards an amazing addition to any collection.
The Cards are available in sets of 7, priced at $60 per set. All unique with varying colors and punch-holes

As part of our new "Pandemic Prints" series we are proud to announce our newest print, featuring the artwork of dedicated NYC graffiti artist UFO 907.
We have been fans of his work for many years now, his iconic alien imagery is known throughout New York and can be found in the strangest of spots all over the states and worldwide. Over the years his artistic presence has been beyond prolific and has caused joy, anger, confusion and sheer obsession, depending on your viewpoint.
Being the first print run the artist has yet produced and modeled on the look of the well known "priority mail" postal label that is so often adorned by his imagery, these pieces make as an incredible collectors item.
