Preview: David Soukup’s “This Side Up”

Escape_No._23_(30x20)_WEB

This Side Up opens tomorrow night in White Wall’s Project Space. For all our Bay Area friends, you can join us for the opening reception from 7-11 p.m. RSVP here. For everyone that can’t make it out, don’t despair, we have preview images of the show after the jump.

David Soukup‘s mixed media works can involve over 100 hours of work and that dedication is evident in the finely detailed end result. Every hand-cut stencil is based off the artist’s own photographs of  fire escapes throughout Chicago, from main streets and hidden corners alike. The wrought iron bars of rusty escape routes are recreated as mazelike grids, often rising out of an atmospheric haze of multiple washes of paint.

Catch a few of the new pieces below.

The Chicago-based artist uses elements of graphic design, collage, mixed media and reclaimed materials in his work to create stenciled and screenprinted works of art. The exhibit opens at White Walls Project Space on April 12.

Check out the full list including the likes of Swoon, Shepard Fairey, and other talented folks here.
