Marka27 Solo Show "Neo Indigenous" Jan12, 2012, 8-10pm
ictor "MARKA27" Quiñonez finally unveils his new body of work, Neo Indigenous, on January 12, 2012, from 8-10pm. New York’s art elite will flock to TTUnderground Gallery, 91 2nd Avenue, Lower Level, in the East Village of Manhattan to witness the mix-media exhibit. From January 12 - 28 art lovers will journey through the artist’s exploration of binding ancient Aztec, African, and Asian art forms with modern pop culture and street art.
Neo Indigenous celebrates the artist’s arrival and first solo show in Gotham. It also marks a shift in the artist’s cultural consciousness. His quest to bridge past with present illustrates his yearning to bring deeper meaning to both old and new art forms. Juxtaposing ancient elements with contemporary design aesthetics, Marka27 reveals both a connection and a disjuncture in the process. Challenging viewers to confront the existing practice of commodifying art, the exhibit leaves a lasting impression-- a mark Marka27 has predicated his reputation on.
