It may be a few weeks away yet, but we wanted to throw some support behind the guys at Stranger Factory with their upcoming gallery show by their local artist, Karl Deuble. New Best Friends, the name of this group exhibition curated by Deuble will open at Stranger Factory on 6th July.
Karl is a screen printer and musician living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from the University of New Mexico in 2006. He grew up in Belen, NM before moving to Albuquerque to pursue his Fine Arts degree. Inspired by street art, cartoons, music, and cats, Karl uses screen printing, spray paint, acrylic and ink to create his style of characters.
As his first curated show at Stranger Factory, NEW BEST FRIENDS brings new and returning artists who inspire Karl and his vision. This show brings a fun flavour to Stranger Factory as it invokes bright colours and imagery inspired by 80’s cartoons, music and street art. Join us as we tour fun graphics and playful illustrations!
Over ten artists will be involved in the New Best Friend show, which includes: Karl Deuble, Patt Kelley, Elena Cabitza, Santos Shelton, Bruce Parker, Thom Glick, Helen Li, Christa Dippel, J.W. Butts, Madelen Foss, and Chuck Chair.
If you’re in the Albuquerque area on July 6th, go show some support to the Stranger Factory krew!
