Press Release //
“What is there to say about the Artist known simply as THE CREEP? Prolific? Stylistically Singular? Sure, but he is also a detail beast with stunningly beautiful (And Clean!) brush work. And a sense of humor that might only be described as whimsically brutal.
Around here, we refer to him as one of our all time best selling artists and more importantly, a dear friend. We couldn’t be more excited to let him take over the gallery this season. And boy did he fill it! There are so many pieces to pour through and each of them is rad as hell.
Look, I’ve been making art as far back as I can remember and “professionally” for a good time now… so DAE and I thought, let’s do a show to see how I’ve progressed (or even regressed) artistically through the years. Usually having a retrospective means you’re coming to the end of your art career, but I see this as more of a “stop and smell the Creep’s roses for a moment” type of deal before we put our heads down again and power through this insane world, paint brushes drawn, and scabbards thrown away! Dramatic? Yes. Enjoy.” – The Creep
