CYCLE 10 OF RED BULL HOUSE OF ART MARKS 3-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
OF GROUNDBREAKING DETROIT ART INCUBATOR
7 New Local Artists Bring Grit, Glamour to Latest Showcase of Talent
Red Bull House of Art will celebrate three years in Detroit with its most significant gallery opening yet on Friday, April 24. Hosted at 1551 Winder in Eastern Market, the gallery is set to unveil the exclusive works of seven local artists including Elmer, Parisa Ghaderi, Brent Forrest, SHEEFY, Niki Urban, K. Guillory & James ‘Jimbo’ Braddock. This marks the first time these works have been open to the public.
Elmer is a Detroit street artist using his time at Red Bull House of Art experimenting with laser-cut wood assemblage and retro-futuristic styling for the first time. Parisa Ghaderi is a multidisciplinary new media artist exploring the concept of nostalgia through her Iranian heritage. Brent Forrest is borrowing from the world of animation to create custom light boxes with digitally painted cells depicting a blend of sci-fi-soaked landscapes.
Using music as a guiding force, SHEEFY has crafted a vivid body of work all its own. Niki Urban’s obsessively detailed charcoal and pen drawings depict nightmarish fantasy scenes influence from a young spent in Poland. K. Guillory’s work explores how women are viewed in today’s Internet-saturated society. James ‘Jimbo’ Braddock has turned a young of growing up on Saturday morning cartoons into a style all his own.
Since 2013, Red Bull House of Art has called the E&B Brewery Lofts in Eastern Market home. In three years, over 80 local artists have held residencies there. With an average attendance of 2,500+ per opening, there are few galleries around the country that rival the influence and presence of this Detroit arts incubator.
Following the April 24 opening, the gallery is open each Saturday and hosts a variety of events in between cycles. For up-to-date information about Red Bull House of Art, visit redbullhouseofart.com or find the gallery on Facebook.
The public gallery opening will be Friday, April 24 from 7-11pm. It is free & open to the public (all ages).
