'Escapre' by Chris Wells & Mario Sughi at Newave Gallery!

There's only a few days left to see the latest show at Newave Gallery which features work from Mario Sughi and Chris Wells. 'Escape'is an interesting pairing as both artists work centres around people and figures but with radically different styles and approaches. Mario's world is clean with fine lines and delicate tones, offset by Chris often chaotic and cartoonish scenes, left in black and white with occasional colour pieces thrown in for good measure.

I've been a fan of Chris work since his degree show and its great to see his sketches tacked up as if taken straight from his studio walls. You could spend hours looking at his drawings and still not see everything there is to see, so many hidden details. And Mario's work with its bikini clad women and sun kissed bodies reminded me of the Grand Theft Auto -Vice City art work, a world of models, champagne and sun! Doesn't go a miss on a gray February day in Aberdeen.

The show is on until the 8th of March so make sure you pop down and see it! And the Newave Gallery is run by good people so be sure to support em.
