Oakland, beginning Friday, January 4, 2013 the collection can be previewed during Oakland Art Murmur. Destination Unknown will be on view through January 31, 2013.
—ZeroFriends Gallery is pleased to announce Destination Unknown, the anticipated solo show of new works by Ricky Watts, premier illustrator, fine artist and member of ZeroFriends collective.
A departure from his known works on canvas of fluid shapes in symmetric vibrant hues, and murals on large-scale public walls, Destination Unknown features Watts’ most meticulous work to date: detailed illustrations exploring the artist’s journey through imagination that manifest a world of endless possibilities. This exhibition draws from Watts’ real-life objects, events, and photographs, while conceptually merges both fact and fictional elements into mellifluent scenes of splendor and intrigue. Grand architectural schemes backdrop mise-en-scenes, where precious life wonders meet disparate happenstance.
