Jason Bryant's Smoke & Mirrors At Porter Contemporary

Sick Kicks, Skate Decks and Old School Hollywood Glamour come together in Jason Bryant’s latest solo exhibit, up now at Porter Contemporary. Smoke and Mirrors is a cohesive exhibition of oil paintings – on unconventional media – through which the artist explores themes of loneliness, vulnerability and frailty.

The exhibit includes beautifully photo-realistically rendered film stills coupled with either his pixilation effects and/or details which appear to be inspired by both Skateboard and Tattoo culture. The juxtaposition of images is very cool and gives Bryant’s work a youthful, Pop Culture appeal while maintaining an air of sophistication. Smoke and Mirrors also includes a selection of custom skateboard decks, which are so hot right now, and custom painted sneakers.

This exhibit is lots of fun and highly recommended. Plus the people who work at Porter Contemporary are super nice, friendly and helpful should you have any questions about the art.
