New work from Phresha En Route for "Gifted" Exhibit

"Upside Down"
11" x 14"
Ink & Marker

Phresha is new to our gallery and has already managed to become a fan favorite. She is sending us some new works for our Encore Opening including the original "Upside Down" featured above, "Lost in Daydreams" (not pictured) and (4) 8" x 10" hardboard sublimation prints.

Phresha says on her FB page "I like to draw sumptuous vixens romping around with mustached kittens and ice cream cones..." A great description of what you see her focusing on in her work. We were drawn to her art instantly and enjoy the way she integrates ink and watercolor into her original pieces. She also makes her art accessible to all budgets by offering an array of various prints on watercolor paper and hardboard sublimations.

About the Artist:
Phresha was born in Romania in 1981 with a crayon in her hand. After a childhood of drawing on all the walls around, she relocated to Canada in her youth, spent some time in Toronto and now recently lives in Vancouver BC. College educated in graphic design and advertising and deeply influenced by graffiti aesthetics, Phresha's style can be described as vibrant, multi-layered, organic flows with sultry female forms, seductive, playful and sometimes scandalous. Phresha has worked with clients such as MTV, Vans Shoes, Curvy, DPi Magazine, Semi-Permanent and Smut. Her art has been featured in numerous galleries in North America, as well as featured in a documentary "Creative Violation - The rebel art of the Street Stencil" in 2007. Currently Phresha is focusing on gallery shows, commission work and sampling all the delicious sushi down the coast.
