Koralie @ FIFTY24SF Gallery: Opening Reception: Thursday, October 2, 2008 from 7–9:30 p.m.
“HAÏKU” is a solo exhibition featuring French artist Koralie, an internationally renowned fine and street artist.
The show will mirror the concept and form of a haiku, focusing on what Koralie explains as, “Little canvases, little frames, little supports, all recounting a little story.” Koralie has made a name for herself in the international fine art community with her unique street art and gallery work, capturing Geisha-inspired characters with beautiful textures, patterns, colors, and forms. Apart from exhibiting in galleries across the world, Koralie has contributed designs to Upper Playground’s apparel line.
Koralie is based in Montpellier, France. Her Geisha-inspired characters are some of the most unique pieces to pop-up in cities across the world. Her work has been recently seen at Galerie L.J. Beaubourg in Paris and Joshua Liner Gallery in New York City.
Koralie’s “HAÏKU” solo exhibition will be on display at the lower level of the FIFTY24SF Gallery from October 2–30, 2008.
The upper level of FIFTY24SF Gallery will continue to show “Catalyst,” a group exhibition showcasing the works of Aaron Horkey, Josh Graham, Aaron Turner, Seldon Hunt, Justin Bartlett, Stephen Kasner, Dwid Hellion, and Florian Bertmer. The exhibit brings together an underground community of artists in which aural and visual expressions converge. Artwork on display comprises of a wide source of media, including new two-dimensional paintings, drawings, video installations, screen prints as well as an installation of seminal works from each of the artists’ extensive catalogues. Guest curation by Brett Aronson.
