Alex Gross and Victor Castillo at Jonathan LeVine Gallery Opening Night Photos

Following our preview coverage (here), we recently attended the opening at NYC’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery for the dual solo exhibitions from artists Victor Castillo (Vol 8) and Alex Gross (Vol 21). Both artists captivated their audiences with colorful, large scale paintings personally reflecting their commentaries and explorations on today’s current culture, whether it is the form of cartoonish children “lost” within a dark jungle in Castillo’s ‘The Jungle,’ or by the immaculate cell-phone wielding figures and anthropomorphic characters in Alex Gross’ ‘ Product Placement.’ View more images of the work as well as opening night photos after the jump.
