EASTERN DISTRICT – 43 BOGART ST – BUSHWICK, BROOKLYN – NYC
JOHN DOE is an endangered painter. The last of a dying breed,he personifies pure art. With unheralded hand skills and hellacious wit, Juan Doe redefines the parameters of bizarre genius and secular thug. Born and raised in New York City, Juan Doe has been evolving the language of interdisciplinary art and design since the late 1970’s.
He is an artist who strains the boundary between painting, propaganda, polemics, and philosophical discourse in art. He encapsulated a new age aesthetic through his command of the graphic process but with the masterful execution of a painter. His images are non-negotiable, they cannot be interpreted or postponed; they exist now, for the oxygen of the viewers’ eyes.
EASTERN DISTRICT – a new addition to the BUSHWICK gallery scene is a project of MICHAEL ‘TIDO’ CABRERA, JORDAN SEILER and JESSE LEE DENNING.
MICHAEL CABRERA co-ordinated PAUL ROWLAND’S PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT – at ART BASEL MIAMI ’08
