From Tony Hawk: Pro Skater 2 to The Ultimate Spiderman, Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins takes on many different life forms with his art. Video games, stop motion movies and large-scale murals are all within his wheelhouse, and now Simkins will have the chance to showcase his artistic talents in a new exhibition hosted by KP Projects. The show, titled “No Strings,” wis a nod to the classic Pinocchio story and “acknowledges the dark origins of Carlo Collodi’s original tale and the hopefully optimistic Disney version.” Said Simkins of the project:

In painting this show, I found myself examining my own life and insecurities while looking at my role as a father and seeing my sons make choices and their repercussions. I feel like I am always battling becoming one of those boys who were turned into donkeys on Pleasure Island. These childhood stories, along with a brush loaded with paint have assisted me as I navigate through these paths and try to save the strings which knit me to my own conscience.

“No Strings” opens May 20.
