WARHOLIAN: Charmaine Olivia, Handiedan, Craww & Tatiana Suarez open Spoke Art’s September Group Show

Posted on Sep 19, 2011

Spoke Art Gallery continues to curate strong shows with a focus on artists that are at the forefront of their peer group. In their latest “September Group Show” curator Ken Harman brought together talent from around the globe, presenting us with strong work from artists Charmaine Olivia, Handiedan, Craww, and Tatiana Suarez.

Charmaine Olivia continues to brighten our world with fantastical women from our inner subconscious, where skulls emerge from shoulders and boats float through waves of hair. The Mission based artist is a standout in the San Francisco art community, and with a fan base that already covers the globe, it is clear that her work is popular amongst the masses. The 23 year old self taught artist has already created a body of imagery that has caught the eye of Lady Gaga, Urban Outfitters, and Volcom… and she shows no signs of slowing down. Her females are meticulously rendered, juxtaposed with just enough looseness in her paint to add increased interest. Olivia’s work seems to evolve right before us, with each body of work incorporating new techniques and subject matter.
