Well, better late than never, yeah? We are a little behind on singing the praises of talented painter, drawer, + rap connoisseur – Crummy-friend Alex DeSpain of Portland Oregon. Earlier this month, Alex opened Shapes at MoHDI Gallery . The collection of abstract pleasantries can be seen through the month of April, so if you be of the house of the northwest, get ye to the SHAPES! Aside from the show, there are other works to be seen on Alex’s Flickr page, including some very slick, geometric Stag & Doe tattoos, and my personal favorite, The Red Panda. Seen above, is a piece from one of Alex’s more recent collections, Plans.
