Vertical Gallery presents Colombian artist Stinkfish for his second solo exhibition at the gallery “The short distance between lands. The long distance between ports.” The exhibition is June 8 – 29, with an opening reception with the artist on Saturday, June 8th, 6:00-9:00pm.

Born in Mexico, but raised in Colombia, Stinkfish has been honing his skills on the streets of his hometown of Bogota since an early age. His murals, always bursting with color, have a stenciled portrait at their center. These portraits are taken from photos that the artist takes during his travels around the world. Stinkfish uses similar color techniques that were popularized in the pop art movement in the 50s. The portrait itself is created with only two or three colors, so the bright and varied colors of the patterns jump to the forefront.

Stinkfish travels all over the world searching for new inspirations. His work can be seen on the streets of Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Guatemala, Spain, Germany, UK, France, Holland, Austria, Nepal, and USA.
