Romulo Cesar - The Flight Of Minisauro

We are very proud to present the thick textured world of Romulo Cesar. White paper has been subjected to Roms' continual interventions and residues.
Check out the vibrant abstraction and fragmented comic art of
The Flight of Minisauro !

"These images are a small selection of my work produced during the past six years… scattered years far from home and without solid roots. Some of the works have been juxtaposed and reorganized over these years, avoiding the establishment of statements or narratives, allowing them to reveal their peculiar subjects .

- Romulo Cesar

About Romulo:
Romulo Cesar was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and has been living in Canada for the last few years. He briefly attended art school in Rio, dropping out to do his own research and development. He has recently moved to Montreal from Vancouver. His work is developed through small and portable formats, mainly hand made books, and papers.

Vernissage Friday June 3, 7pm - 10 pm
Exhibit runs until June 30, 2011

Billy Mavreas-Inside The Face-New Pencil Drawings

New pencil drawings by Monastiraki denizen Billy Mavreas.
Exhibit runs from May 13 - May 29, 2011

"I based these drawings on the idea that what we really look like includes every expression we've ever made, every age we've passed through or will pass through and every possible pathway we may take through out life. When all these facets are presented simultaneously, It's an inclusive vision that often borders on the horrific"
