Even if you exist on the fringe of the creative community in Raleigh you should be aware of the incredible work by Luke Buchanen. He has been rapidly painting a record-setting amount of work in a blinding timeline for his biggest show to date that is titled “A Year and a Day” at the National Humanities Center in RTP on Sept 22nd . The new work features the colorfully gritty texture of New Orleans, Brooklyn, Durham and Raleigh. The show is dedicated to MCA of the Beastie Boys, and a lot of the Brooklyn paintings have ties to Paul’s Boutique. There are 21 paintings in total in the show that will run through December 13th.
Joe Bruno stopped by to check out his studio and working space at the Bonded Llama. His studio space is an engaging work of art in itself. In order to fulfill the demand for his upcoming show Luke needed to spill into the Llama main gallery space. Check out this “behind the scenes” preview of the big show:
