Must See Art: Creepshow by Dolla at NYC’s Bold Hype Gallery

“Too Many Creeps…”

I will admit that Creepshow, featuring work by Orlando-based street artist Dolla, is the first gallery show opening I’ve attended where they handed out 3-D glasses at the door. Dolla, who recently completed the conversation-inspiring campaign, “Dolla Lama” is – like Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Kenny Scharf and many others – among the up-and-coming contemporary artists making the welcome transition from the street to the gallery. I couldn’t be more excited to tell you about his creations. The Creepshow exhibit is based on a central character created by Dolla, The Creep.

Must See Art: Jason Limon’s Blood/Nectar Exhibit at NYC’s Bold Hype Gallery

Flourishing By Jason Limon (Media: Acrylic on Panels)

On one of the rainiest Thursday nights in recent history, Geoffrey and I got soaked to the bone splashing through ankle-deep puddles and dodging the deluge while gallery hopping from Chelsea to Soho. Urban Art Safari! One of my favorite exhibits that we were fortunate to make it to that night is Jason Limon’s Blood/Nectar, currently on view over at the Bold Hype Gallery, which is a must see for fans of surrealist painting. Jason paints in acrylics on canvas and wood panels as well, with his subjects incorporating fusions of organic matter, such as birds that have evolved to be part plant or part machine.


His paintings are really cool and remind me a lot of one of my other favorite contemporary surrealist painters, Greg “Craola” Simkins. Jason Limon is getting added to my list of cool artists to pay attention to. Check his stuff out while you can!
