Recently discovered by JOHN MALOOF (of Vivian Maier fame), LEE GRANTHAM has created acrylic on Plexiglass paintings, which requires the artist to paint in reverse. By mastering this difficult technique, Grantham brings an astounding amount of depth to his artwork, while incorporating a level of his own style of imagery. Grantham’s unique visual language is energetic, nostalgic, and obsessive, as he stylizes his vision of Pop Culture from the 50s to the 80s to present day. In combination with his reverse acrylic paintings, the exhibition will feature several of his authentic 50s television cabinets (including real lava lights).
The exhibit was featured in the Chicago Tribune, January 12, 2018 and the Chicago Reader, January 11, 2018.
