Block Party

Sept 6th, 2008


Block Party
DC & MD SHOWS!



Art Whino continues to invigorate the DC art world by bringing the metro area exciting exhibitions that challenge the viewer's ideas of contemporary art. Art Whino's newest exhibition, "Block Party," is an exceptional new installation that will also serve as a reflection on art pricing and buying. Solo artist Daniel Fleres and 10 others participating in this exhibition are set to display hundreds of small paintings on wooden blocks. The exhibition will be a large installation of these little wood pieces varying in depth that are designed to be displayed singly, in groupings and even as collaboration pieces. Daniel directly addresses his dedicated following of young, new collectors with this installation, challenging the idea that good art has to be unattainable to be valuable. The exhibition was designed around around the idea that art should be accessible to people of all ages and income levels, and therefore all works in the show will be priced at the same affordable price. As an installation, the exhibition is designed to let you, the buyer, participate in the artistic process as a composer of the forms.

Daniel Fleres

ImageLife and all of its complexities is the source of artistic inspiration for Dan Fleres and what pushes him to take his work to new levels. Through his experimentations with acrylic, paper, and mixed media on canvas, wood, and found objects, Fleres creates streamlined portraits of mournful yet vividly colored characters against skillfully rendered backgrounds. His work is flavored with his subtle yet insightful views of pop culture and society.
