Stickymonger Curates ‘Spray Painterly 2’ at Allouche Gallery in NYC

Featuring works by CHITO, André Saraiva, among others.

On October 13, Allouche Gallery in New York will present a new group exhibition entitled Spray Painterly 2 curated by the acclaimed Brooklyn-based artist Stickymonger. The first iteration, Spray Painterly, took place in 2021 and was launched to challenge the perception of spray paint artworks as just merely graffiti, and instead, showcase how masterful methods involved with using the medium can rival conventional materials that are often found in fine contemporary art.

For this second edition, Stickymonger has gathered a fresh coterie of talented artists that have utilized spray paint in distinct ways across various works. Participating artists include André Saraiva, Ana Barriga CHITO, Diego, Jonathan Edelhuber, Stickymonger and UFO907. Altogether, the ongoing Spray Painterly series by Stickymonger and Allouche Gallery celebrates the rich history of graffiti, spray paint as an elevated medium and international masters of the craft.

A menagerie of spray incorporated works will be shown in the presentation including DIEGO’s ‘Distorted Day’ 2022 painting made using aerosol, acrylic and oil chalk on canvas. DIEGO is one of Tokyo’s most recognized graffiti artists. With a painting practice spanning over 10 years, the artist creates intricate compositions that shed light on subjects inspired by the streets of Japan: plastic bottles, stray rats, drunk civilians on the street and shaking buildings. Another highlight is Ana Barriga’s ‘Pastillas Rosas’ 2022 work made using spray paint, oil enamel and marker on canvas. The Spanish artist’s practice features heavily-layered paintings that blend surrealism and realism elements. Cracked porcelain dolls, giggling cherubs and playful demons are just a few subjects found in her fun environments that are often contrasted with spray paint motifs.

Spray Painterly 2 will open to the public starting October 13. Head to Allouche Gallery’s website for more information.

Elsewhere in art, FISK is presenting a new exhibition entitled ’Colibri’ by Chris Burnett.
