There’s always an East vs West rivalry, whether it’s in Europe, Asia, or the Americas. This weekend is a showdown between two distinct styles from artists that call opposite sites of the United States their home. myplasticheart is hosting a show of new work, titled Metal and Fur, featuring West Coaster Philip Lumbang, and East Coaster ChrisRWK. They will have collaborative pieces as well as individual ones that highlight Philip’s carefree style and Chris’ more ominous tones. Imagine what could happen if a totally awesome bear met a charming but murderous robot…
Opening reception is this Saturday, August 8th at 7 pm EDT, and lasts until 10 pm. The exhibit will be available through September 6th, 2015. Thinking about the reception, not convinced? Well, bust a move – MPH is giving away a limited edition ChrisRWK x Philip Lumbang totebag to the first 25 attendees who ask for it (and with only 50 total bags made!). If I lived in NYC, I’d be all over that. Instead I will just wish from afar. This is a sneak of the totebag!
