The producers of the DOCUMENT the Fresh exhibition series are pleased to announce their next art show: Barry Bishop The Creative – Original Paintings and Prints – an art exhibition celebrating the fine art of legendary Washington, DC artist Barry Bishop.
Bishop, who was influenced by the iconic Shirt King Fade, as well as attended Duke Ellington School of the Arts and the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design, was a major influence in DC’s early streetwear scene (’87) having created a number of the foundational designs that set the tone and direction for DC’s famed Madness Connection, which inspired him to start his own groundbreaking line B-Man Apparel.
Years later Bishop would move into the fine art world – picking up the paint brush again and, via the medium of acrylic paint on canvas, produce stunning large-scale portraits using his signature colors of black and white, of some of the world’s most iconic and genre defying individuals such as Bob Marley, Patti Labelle, Jimmy Hendrix, and Tupac.
Barry’s collections are represented both privately and institutionally (i.e. TNT National Gallery of Art), Eric Dyson, Chris Tucker, and the late Ruby Dee.
The opening reception will take place on Sat Dec 7th, from 7 – 10 PM, at the Brookland Artspace Lofts 3305 8th St NE Washington, DC and will include complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
The exhibition will be on display from Saturday December 7th through Tuesday December 10th.
