J★RYU Art - "pariah"
This is my contribution to the "Stop It' show, 9/10/2011 at Munky King, Los Angeles. The theme of the show revolves around drawing awareness to bullying. I was honored to be asked by the curator, Super Cooper Berella, to participate and hope that my piece conveys a bit of the theme appropriately. This original sculpture was created from epoxy, polymer clay, metal and craft porcelain.
Here's the official press release:
"Cooper Berella (aka SuperCooper), a 12 year old artist, art collector, and supportive member of the art community, is curating his second art show at Munky King Gallery in Los Angeles. “Stop It!” opens on Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 6-10pm. The theme of the show is meant to draw awareness to bullying and cyberbullying. Cooper has confirmed over 70 artists from around the world to participate in the show. Paintings, drawings, custom toys, and prints expressing the artists’ view of bullying will be on display. Part of the proceeds from the show will be donated to GLIDE (Gays and Lesbians Initiating a Dialog for Equality) and CHIME Institute (an organization dedicated to inclusive education where kids of all abilities learn together). Artwork will be displayed at Munky King Gallery in Los Angeles."
