HEAVY CONSCIENCE AUKS

Photo of the day: HEAVY CONSCIENCE by AUKS/5 POINTZ – One of the thought inducing powerful photos part of the current ‘Whitewash” exhibit in memory of the vandalistic destruction of the great murals at 5 Pointz Graffiti and Street Art Museum. I am proud to say I have one of Auk’s amazing paintings in my home.
“Auks One” (Thomas Lucero), an artist who draws much of his inspiration from Chicano tattoo art, cartoons, skateboard graphics, and later Hip Hop culture and high Renaissance drawings. He is a self-taught artist who has worked diligently over the years to refine his skills in every form of artistic expression. He is best known for his graffiti inspired illustrations and murals and his work has inevitably spread to the gallery circuit.
If you would like to see more expressions by great artists on canvas and in photographs (mine included) this weekend – come to the Jeffrey Leder Gallery this weekend and view the brilliant art by artists: Auks, Cortes, Hans Von Rittern, Jerms, Just One, Meres One, Poem, Shiro, See TF, Topaz, Zimad, all brilliantly curated by Marie Cecile Flageul!
The Jeffrey Leder Gallery: 2137 45th Road, L.I.C.
