Ruben Aguirre Jr. was visiting from Chicago this past week and he passed by 1:AM gallery yesterday. Since they were just visitors to the Bay, I asked him and his friend what they thought. They said that the weather here was crazy and that they loved Oakland because it was warm. That of course was their opinion before visiting the gallery (right, guys?). Last week to check out his work at the gallery or if you don’t have time to pass by, visit our flickr to see his art.
Ruben Aquirre Jr. is a Chicago based multimedia artist who describes his work as being a “visual slap upside the head.” Often times, his work reminds us of the strength irony carries within, to offer change and/or contemplation regarding our perceptions of the universe. Visit his website.
“Don’t Sweat the Technique: Ode to the Spraycan” exhibit at 1:AM gallery through October 10th, 2009.
