Klughaus Gallery is proud to announce the debut of “100 Paintings,” a solo exhibition of brand new, one-of-a-kind illustrated works by Portland, Oregon-based artist and cartoonist Aaron OBLVN. In honor of his first ever east coast show, OBLVN has been hard at work for months preparing one hundred illustrations exclusively for Klughaus; highlights of the character and cartoon-heavy exhibit include contemporary, tongue-in-cheek remixes of classic cartoon characters like 'Felix The Cat' as an art thief and 'Dennis the Menace' as a vandal, as well as many original works, from mischievous spray can characters to runaway inkwells.
Aaron OBLVN is a Portland-based artist known for his cheeky, mischievous characters and clean and playful design work. In addition to an extensive background as an aerosol artist working throughout the country, Aaron has exhibited at many prestigious galleries along the west coast. Most recently, his work was featured in MoCA's highly praised “Art in the Streets” exhibition in Los Angeles. Last but not least, Aaron has designed for many well known commercial projects and brands including Nike, Dell, Ecko, Upper Playground, Winners Circle, Clout Magazine, and more. Some of his favorite cartoons include Thundercats, GI Joe and "definitely Scooby Doo."
*Limited edition posters and exclusive OBLVN x Klughaus T-shirts will be released at the opening!
