“Sambhavana Girls” (detail) by Swoon will be one of the works in the new Moberg exhibit, “Sway.” Swoon has become known for combining whimsy with strong realism. Her works can be found on the sides of buildings worldwide and also in prestigious museums, such as New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
Moberg Gallery will open a new exhibit Friday showcasing works from an intriguing group of 11 internationally renowned street artists. The show, “Sway,” is curated by New York-based artist Jason Woodside, who paints interior and exterior walls around the world; in Des Moines, he painted the outside wall of Silver Fox on Ingersoll Avenue.
We’re especially looking forward to checking out works by Adam Lucas, who creates with vibrant color and strong lines that pop off the canvas; Ruben Sanchez, a self-taught artist from Madrid, Spain, who has a bold, colorful graphic style; and Swoon, a Brooklyn-based mixed-media artist whose portraits, prints and public installations explore humanity and healing and who is one of the first female street artists to gain international recognition.
