‘Nature Will Always Win’ Solo Exhibition by Shark Toof

by Ken HarmanPosted on

Shark Toof’s first major solo exhibition “Nature Will Always Win” opened at LeBasse in Culver City last weekend, where the artist transformed the gallery with his signature style. On the exterior, Shark Toof greets gallery goers with a great white shark graffiti mural, swallowing you into his new collection of hybrid animal-1960’s pop comics infused paintings. Shark’s exhibition blurs the line between our human inhibitions and natural animalistic tendencies, suppressed for the sake of nobility and acceptance. LeBasse also presents Shark with an environment in which to exhibit his impressive technical skill, thus enhancing his traditional work on the streets. Through layers of spray paint, portraits of love, lust, war, Shark suggests that Nature Will Always Win. Now on view at LeBasse Projects, Culver City, CA, from June 18 – July 9, 2011. – Caro
