Chet Zar - Faces of Death. Now showing at Last Rites Gallery in New York through August 19, 2011.
Come celebrate the newly remodeled Last Rites Gallery in New York with a pair of cool exhibits. If you’ve never been to Last Rites before, it’s part tattoo parlor and part art gallery. The space is extremely cool and looks like a movie set when you walk inside. The gallery focuses on artists who like to explore the darker side of the imagination. Last Rites’ latest show is a pair of new exhibits by Chet Zar (entitled “Faces of Death”) and Craig LaRotonda (entitled “Eternal Consequences”) and is recommended viewing.
"Eternal Consequences" by Craig LaRotonda. Now showing at Last Rites Gallery in New York through August 19, 2011.
Chet Zar is an American artist known for his dark visual art and has worked extensively on the artwork and music videos for the band Tool. His exhibit “Faces of Death,” features oil paintings. Though the faces are freakish and ghoulish on the outside, when you look at the paintings a little closer, you find an innocence and likeable qualities to the subjects.
Craig LaRotonda is a professional illustrator, painter and sculptor. His show “Eternal Consequences” features art that looks like it was created during the Renaissance period. The frames have that old world feel and the works themselves look like they could be hundreds of years old. In addition to his work being featured in films and art collections all over the world, the “grotesque elegance” of his work has also been featured in print in Juxtapose Magazine as well as the New York Times.
The opening night reception at Last Rites was packed with amazing artists including Jason D’Aquino, Michael Mararian, Eric “Eyeball” Richardson, Royce Bannon, Frank Russo, Martina Secondo Russo as well as Chet Zar and Craig LaRotonda.
“Faces of Death” by Chet Zar and “Eternal Consequences” by Craig LaRotonda are showing at Last Rites Gallery (located at 511 West 33rd Street, 3rd Floor) in New York through August 19, 2011.

Phantom Passport by Nathan Spoor. Now showing at Bold Hype Gallery in NYC through June 4, 2011.
“Phantom Passport” by Nathan Spoor is now showing at the Bold Hype Gallery in New York. The Los Angeles based artist has created worlds that you don’t need a passport to enter. However, I should warn you that once your mind takes a trip to the places Spoor has created, you’re not going to want to come back. There’s so much going on in every painting and when you see the vivid colors and detail in person, you’ll be wowed. You never know what to expect in each painting as you’ll find elements of both joy and sorrow in his works. One thing can be expected though – you’ll be able to stare at each painting for a long time and still discover new elements in them.
Also on display is an exhibit of sculptures called “New Dimensions,” featuring art from Colin Christian, Chet Zar, Martin Wittfooth, Chris Ryniak, Brian Despain, Jason Freeny, Andrew Bell, Doctor A, Jason Limon, Amanda Spayd, Nicole Gastonguay, Douglas Hoffman and Debra Broz.
