Buff Monster doesn't kill you with cuteness, he slaughters rips and mames with it. And the Corey Helford Gallery will be trying to contain the cuteness with a new solo show titled "The Sweetest Thing" by the pink beast himself. The show will open Saturday, August 23rd and will be on view until September 2nd. It won't be up for very long so if you're tired of internet porn but still need your fix of pink, black, squirting, and plenty of wood you won't want to sleep on this one.
“The Sweetest Thing” is the newest solo exhibition of works by Los Angeles street artist Buff Monster. Returning to the gallery for his second solo show, Buff Monster’s “Pepto-pink” palette bursts into action with a kaleidoscope of geometric patterns, kaiju-inspired characters, and kanji translations of Buff Monsterism’s such as Lick It Up and Extra Creamy. Inspired by Japanese fine art, pop culture, and anime, Buff Monster paints his trademark imagery in Superflat style, blending pink, black, and metallic silver shapes into an array of squirting scenes. Moving in a more technical direction, the series of paintings will be executed on custom birch panels in an assortment of sizes. A new limited-edition signed and numbered serigraph will be released on opening night. Open to the public, the reception for “The Sweetest Thing” will take place on Saturday, August 23 from 7 to 10pm and will be on view until September 2, 2008.
