    I will be showing RZA and Freddie Mercury portraits in this show curated by my friend Scott Bakal.
    RZA piece includes rough sketches as well as unrevised original ink drawing to show the whole process.

    “Facing Humanity is an exhibition of work by renowned illustrators who create images for books, magazines, posters, and other types of publication. Artists featured in this show range from the rising stars of illustration to some of the most prominent illustrators in the world. All have the unique ability to capture the personality and emotions of their subjects.

    Several of these images have appeared in international publications and some pieces were created specifically for this show and are being exhibited here for the first time. The portraits shown here depict everyday people and well-known figures from popular culture. Each artist sought to illustrate not only the features and forms of their subjects, but the significance the subjects have in culture and society.”
