Salmagundi Black & White Exhibition

Sometimes you just gotta let your imagination run while and create something that's totally imaginative. I wanted to see if I can x-ray a butterfly with exoskeleton shooting out of its body.

So I started with black and white ink drawing of a butterfly and added watercolor of strange bone growth here and there and voila. Exhibited at Salmagundi's Black and White Exhibition. 

Then somehow this became the blueprint for my 3D printed exoskeleton fancy clutch

Original art print on stretched canvas is for sale here on Saatchi Art

Junior & Scholarship and New Members Exhibitions

Salmagundi Club, the oldest art club in the United States hosted 2 shows simultaneously on Friday Jan 13 2017. Yup, upstairs and downstairs where the New Members Show and the Junior & Scholarship exhibition were staged. 3 of my works were exhibited in both shows :)

Upstairs: New Member Exhibition . Downstairs: Jr. & Scholarship Exhibition

Imagine my surprise and excitement when I was called on stage. Thank you Salmagundi and thank you Mr. Anthony Almeida for believing in my works!
