Case’s Never Odd or Even

Case’s first London solo show, Never Odd or Even, opened at Signal Gallery on Thursday (ps, the show is in association with Campbarbossa). Case is one of the pioneers of modern photo-realistic graffiti. I was looking forward to this show, but the end result exceeded my expectations.

A few of the paintings weren’t quite “photo-realistic,” but I think that added to the show and helped to prove that Case’s art is a creative endeavor and not only a technical exercise (unlike some photo-realistic paintings or trompe-l’œil).

This piece was painted on pieces of cardboard, which creates a sort of weird effect when mixed with Case’s photo-realism.

This painting has to be my favorite:
