Process by Reggie LeFlore
On view: July 18 – September 2, 2017
Art reception: July 22, 6 – 9PM
The FCAI is pleased to present Reggie LeFlore, an urban, street artist from Omaha, Nebraska, who will transform our gallery with an installation of street art.
Reggie is a visual artist who composes with the concepts and philosophies of Street Art and Graffiti culture in mind, using a combination of aerosols, stencils, acrylic paints and graphic design elements to produce human portraiture and illustration. The aim of his work is to dismantle the negative elements often associated with Street Art culture, as he paints with colors and techniques that express vibrancy and a complex degree of work, extending beyond the misunderstood concepts of “tagging” and “vandalism”.
Reggie has participated in three of our recent group exhibitions including Going Places, the Wind Energy Pop-Up show and Who Dun-it? He is versatile in his subject matter which often includes portraiture and textual elements. His distinctive layering technique and dynamic color choices create explosive drama and he does not shy away from quasi-political themes or issues of social justice.
