Opening Night: Curiot’s “Age of the Omuktlans” at Fecal Face Dot Gallery

Mexico City-based painter and street artist Curiot opened his solo show, "Age of the Omuktlans," at San Francisco's Fecal Face Dot Gallery. Part folkloric and part futuristic, the composite creatures in Curiot's series of paintings are inspired by Curiot's imaginings of Mexican culture during his upbringing in the United States. The otherworldly animals in the vibrant paintings are made up of scrambling homunculi, organic forms and textile-inspired abstract designs. "Age of the Omuktlans" is on view through April 14. Take a look at our exclusive photos from the opening night after the jump.
