SHUNGABOY, the DC Paintings
And Other Works

October 26 - November 16, 2013

Since early 2013, New York-based artist Shungaboy has been attending the Men's Sketch drawing group at the Vitruvian Gallery in Washington, DC. This exhibition displays these paintings of male nudes for the first time. Interestingly, and surprising to the artist himself is that the paintings created in DC are a marked departure from his paintings created in other groups such as the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art's Drawing Studio (NYC) and the Pines Nude Drawing group (Fire Island Pines, NY). Whether it's the room layout, the models or the atmosphere is not clear, but these paintings represent a significant step in the evolution of his work. Of particular note is the emphasis and manipulation of perspective and foreshortening. Click here for location map and gallery hours.
