ART: Tony DePew, TOOFLY, Quelbeast & Daniela Valle at Mighty Tanaka
We caught the Vis a Vis show at Mighty Tanaka featuring the works of Tony DePew, TOOFLY & Quelbeast. These three amazing artists use color in portraiture in very intense and different ways. They all showcase their work in the streets, at a blown out size that enhances the faces and expressions staring back at us. It was intriguing to see their style translated into the gallery setting, and felt lucky to see such a group of preserved pieces away from their urban wear & tear. Particularly captivating was the stained glass portrait by Tony Depew, which casted a colorful shadow behind its face.
Daniela Valle creates exquisite, organic shaped jewelry out of metals – each piece was super unique and crafted to naturally fit into the wearer.
