Van Der Plays Gallery presents Alejandro Caiazza – Diver City

August 14 @ 12:00 pm - August 20 @ 6:00 pm

Free

Diver City will be on show August 14th – August 20th, 2017 | Reception August 16th 6-8pm

Artist Alejandro Caiazza makes his Lower East Side debut at Van Der Plas Gallery.
The argentine artist creates inspiration for his work by the drawings of children and explores criminals, skulls, clowns, and madmen. These silly, wacky characters, lurid and subhuman, are deformed, absurd, and grotesque. Many of the paintings are inspired by human emotions and daily life.

Caiazza uses acrylic, oil bar, charcoal, and spray paint, and likes to experiment with mixed media on cardboard, canvas, and wood. His style can be considered “art brut” or “neoexpressionist,” with influences such as Jean Dubuffet, Jonathan Meese, Georg Baselitz, William de Kooning, Jean Michel Basquiat, and A.R. Penk.
