“It Ain’t About The Filling/The Truth About The Occult” by BEAU

On February 25, 2011 I received a cryptic invitation to cover a pop-up art show.  I’m always up for an adventure, so I showed up at the address at the designated time.  To my delight, the show was “It Ain’t About The Filling/The Truth About The Occult” by BEAU.  Loyal readers of the site are no stranger to the talents of artist Beau as he is one of the most prolific street artists in New York.  He leaves presents for Manhattan residents to discover constantly.  What many people might not know is that in addition to making great politically charged street art, Beau has another side – he’s an extremely gifted fine artist.

He often uses found objects where he applies his mastery of all styles.  In the work above, Beau has carved all the lines you see surrounding the tea pot.

In any work of art from Beau, you’ll see influences from artists as diverse as Basquiat to Salvador Dali, yet each piece has a style that uniquely belongs to Beau.

Beau was recently profiled by Complex and I recommend checking out the article.  You’ll see some great action shots of the mysterious artist as well as some rarely seen works that will make you agree that Beau is a force to be reckoned with in the art world.  You can read the article at this link.
