Shark Toof: Ping Pong Show ~ C.A.V.E. Gallery Venice

Saturday, October 20, 7 – 10pm

Ping Pong Show is the spectacle of romance and nature. Nature and romance are adversaries in a constant battle akin to the idea of predator versus prey. Core belief systems are challenged. These uncomfortable proximities provoke questions and leave the viewer reflecting about the complexity of social interaction.

Shark Toof has taken an ambitious parallel path to his iconic street work and created a spectacular new series of paintings that express a bold conceptual vision and the technical merit of his multi media skills. The exhibition will showcase original paintings in which the artist skillfully juxtaposes textures, employs precise lines and traditional rendering, in dynamic and complex compositions saturated with of color – and with meaning.
