Cleveland artist FLESH, exhibits new work at the Gallery@MSASS located at the Mandel School


Artist, FLESH, was invited to exhibit his art work during Black History Month. His style of work follows the Minimalist and Neo-Expressionist movements; the drawings and paintings seem almost child-like. His deliberate but minimal brush strokes are often augmented by earth tone colors. In his pieces, he usually elaborates on a single object; such as an outlined drawing of a human head.

His painting entitled, AMERICAN BEAUTY portrays an incongruous human face surrounded by odd shapes and colors. The work provokes fear. The work, LAST LAUGH is a simplistic line drawing of a human face with the words “HA HA HA HA” written around it. It is a sad commentary on harassment in our culture. He is “…attempting to capture the raw essence of motion how it in its simplicity comes off clear and almost childlike…so that anyone can understand it.” We’re living in a society where most communication between people is non-verbal and therefore cause a lot off misunderstandings.” FLESH

FLESH's work is exhibited on the 1st floor at the Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences Case Western Reserve University. The exhibit runs through February 28, 2014. To learn more about the artist, or to purchase his work, please contact: or call 216-368-0722.
