 An eager crowd was not deterred by a little cold weather to wait in line for the opening of Jerkface's new solo show at Bottleneck Gallery last night in Brooklyn.  The free "print" for the first 50 people was a very good idea to get people out and lined up ready for the show.
An eager crowd was not deterred by a little cold weather to wait in line for the opening of Jerkface’s new solo show at Bottleneck Gallery last night in Brooklyn.  The free “print” for the first 50 people was a very good idea to get people out and lined up ready for the show.  
Once inside, the crowd was enjoying the nostaligic feel of Jerkface’s work.  A mix between childhood characters and pop icons, Jerkface’s bold color and clean lines seem to put a smile on everyone’s face.  My personal favorite was tie between the MF Doom and Bender or the Simpson Mr. Wiggum and Officer Lou. 



 

I watched a few prints sell out so fans were taking home the work which is always good to see.  Overall it was a solid solo show for the hard-working Jerkface.

Check out the show in person at 60 Broadway in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  He also has a number of outdoor murals around Bushwick and he recently finished repainted the Rag & Bone wall on Elizabeth St. in Manhattan.

Check out some of the pieces from the show in case you can’t make the show in person.
