Diamond at Strike
This weekend, as part of the collective at Strike, different artists gave the centro sociale a bit of sprucing up with some new pieces, including Diamond. Inclement weather kept everyone from working, so new stuff will be continually added over the next week or so. Both the exhibit in the pub, the photographs in the corridor, and the new paintings are all well worth a visit. I love how Diamond’s piece leaps out from the photo, really set apart from the older paintings that surround it. The crisp black and white imagery recall his precise drawings, done with a Bic pen, one of which can be found hanging inside the pub.
