Circa 1986 Redux takes a broad look at the artist's work from the 80's until today.
Rick Prol started showing his work during the heyday of the East Village art scene of the 1980s, a scene that embraced the idea of a community of experimental artists living in and thriving off of the grittiness and cultural richness of the area. He quickly became an icon of the era, known for his dark yet vibrant, cartoonish descriptions of fantastical murder and mayhem in the rat-infested urban jungle.
An opening reception for this show will be held at the on Saturday, May 19 from 5 to 7 p.m. The reception is free. The exhibition will be on view through June 17th.
