Artist Brian M. Viveros & his wife Jenie
Artist Brian M. Viveros’ ‘Returning Art To The Unclean’ opened this past weekend at NYC’s Last Rites Gallery to a swollen crowd of fans. The exhibition featured portraits of wounded and war bound femmes, a convergence of visceral images; thin scratches, plump scarlet roses and impossibly thick eyelashes. Aside from the signature touches of sultry eyes and limp, dangling cigarettes, the works also tackled the complex themes of war, politics and cultural identity. View more opening night images below.
