Oliver Black on Meds

Posted by medicineagency on Sep. 24, 2009

Oliver Black is a Bay Area based-artist who paints canvases in all shapes and sizes. With his signature style, he brings to life a unique breed of characters, creating a world where it is not uncommon to see diaper-adorned birds playing the banjo or cults of crowned fish dancing. Often describing himself as ‘a reclusive, self-taught scribbler,’ there’s no denying the inner humor and oddity within Oliver that can’t help but to transcend itself onto his colorful canvases. With a relentless eye for detail and a preternatural sense of symmetry, Oliver invites viewers to get lost in his complex yet accessible oeuvre.Olver will be showing a series of paintings at Medicine Agency in the show titled, My Better Half. This collection on display and for sale has something for everyone on October 2nd.Directed by Sean Desmond
