"Groundswell" at BLVD Gallery opens May 12

Cut Kulture United

BLVD Gallery is proud to present for its inaugural show, “Groundswell”, a diverse collection of some the most exciting artists of the Urban Contemporary movement. These artists have literally made their mark across the globe helping to create what has become the predominant visual art form of modern urban culture using the visual vernacular of graffiti, pop culture, and fine art with the viral strategies of mass marketing. This show is meant to serve as an introduction to the incredible depth of the Urban Contemporary art community and the ongoing aesthetic that BLVD Gallery wishes to promote.
Participating in this show are pioneers of the “Street Art” world, as well as individuals who recontextualize the visual language of the city to create a new visual expression that is spiritually rooted in folk art but is undeniably “Fine” art. Though the art may appear incredibly varied there is a thread of modernism that connects all of the work together and gives it an accessibility that is often missing from more conceptual endeavors.

Participating artists are:
Invader
Mearone
Joshua Petker
Greg Simkins, “Craola”
Thomas Han
Damon Soule
Oliver Vernon
Joshua Krause
Robert Hardgrave
Iosefatu Sua
Sam Sneke
Sylvia Ji
Bigfoot
Martin Ontiveros
Bwana Spoons
Darvin Vida
Tra Selhow
Warren Dykeman

Opens May 12 6pm-10pm
2316 2nd ave, Belltown Seattle
