Oakland based artist Lauren Napolitano along with the UK’s David Bray and Word To Mother have come together to create a wondrous and folksy illustrative dream world in their collaborative group exhibition “Better Habits” at the Athen B Gallery in Oakland. Athen B. studio artist, Lauren Napolitano has been evolving a new body of work with a rich color palette inspired by her residency in Tulum, Mexico. David Bray’s graphic lines and witty play on words create stripped-down compositions rich in symbolism. Layers of wash and textured abstraction mingle with hints of playful illustration in Word To Mother’s most poetic body of work so far. Each of the artists have created new individual works to be shown alongside a series of collaborative works. The exhibition will be on view May 14th to June 4, 2016 with an opening reception on Saturday, May 14th at 7pm at 1525 Webster St. in Downtown Oakland. More info and images after the jump!
