Playground Tactics

January 14 - February 04, 2012

White Walls is pleased to present Playground Tactics, an intriguing collection of new works by Brooklyn-based artists Skewville. This will be Skewville’s first solo project with White Walls, curated by Tova Lobatz, with approximately 30 pieces and an installation that will encompass and connect the Skewville style to the indoor space. The opening reception will be Saturday, January 14, from 7-11 pm, and the exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through February 4, 2012.

As the artistic duo known infamously as Skewville, twin brothers Ad and Droo, gained recognition in the late nineties with their fake wooden sneakers tossed over telephone lines. While continuing a heavy presence in the public art forum since then, Skewville has also entered galleries with varying size of artworks on plywood, and a focus on installation. A constant source of the brothers’ inspiration is the New York City lifestyle- including graffiti, fashion, and urban expression. To create this urban experience, Skewville looks for mediums outside the canvas and paints on found objects with house paints.
