OBLIVIOUS SURROUNDINGS | Derrick Snodgrass
January 18 - February 9, 2020
Opening Reception: Saturday January 18, 7pm
In conjunction with our friends at Secret Headquarters, we are happy to present OBLIVIOUS SURROUNDINGS, the first solo exhibition by Los Angeles based artist Derrick Snodgrass. Born and raised in Kentucky, Snodgrass is a self-taught artist and accomplished tattooist working in various high and low profile studios for the last twenty years. His personal work employs a multitude of techniques from black and white ink-on-paper pointillism to lush neon blacklight paint on canvas. No matter his method, Snodgrass’s work conveys a psychedelic mysticism tinged with unapologetic black humor, conjuring an otherworld where smiley faces and skulls exist in and share space equally.
Derrick Snodgrass (b. 1976) is from Louisville, Kentucky and currently resides in Los Angeles where he rides motorcycles and runs his art and tattooing practices. In 2019, a monograph of his work was published by Secret Headquarters.
