March 31st 6pm – 8pm, Galerie Tanja Grunert is pleased to present Nine Lives, the fifth solo exhibition with New York based artist Michael Alan. The prolific artist and performer will be exhibiting all new mixed media works that build on his dysmorphic, yet painfully exact forms. Utilizing a unique mark making language Alan shares with us a glimpse into his present as he experiences it. The compulsive need to make marks and capture a picture, comes from a deeper desire to capture the happenings of the intangible now. The artist acts as a reporter, his work as a contorted, technicolor filter through which the viewer is invited to decipher their own measures of reality.
Join us for Michael Alan’s solo exhibition, 9Lives, to see new works of the Brooklyn based artist. The showcase is to commemorate a complete turn around from overdosing and now reliving “nine lives”. Come and celebrate new life and new art. The most motivated artist of 2016 suffers and still creates passionate artwork through it all.
