Polish artist BEZT of Etam Cru made the trip to NYC for the opening of his inaugural solo exhibition entitled “Beautiful Mistakes”, which opened Saturday, October 21st at Spoke Art Gallery. Known primarily for large-scale murals painted with Sainer as part of the Etam Cru duo, BEZT’s work is resistant to the ascription of excessively assigned meaning, preferring to allow the imagery to speak for itself.
The word “Etam” is Polish and loosely translates to “whatever” or “I don’t care” – rather than saying this in a dismissive tone, it is intended to be symbolic of the spirit of creative freedom.
Betz treated patrons to multiple walls of large scale paintings which contained dark overtones expressing emotions such as anguish and longing. Each piece although seemingly independent shared a common thread of a muted color palettes. Each painting become more intricate and interesting as the viewer studied the details up close.
The exhibition “Beautiful Mistakes” will be on view at SPOKE Art NYCf rom October 21st until November 5th, 2017. Make sure to check it out ASAP as most of the works have already sold… but a hand full of high quality prints are still available.
