Defaced and Faces of the Street at Blackbird Tattoo and Gallery 

Face the Face

Face the Face
Unlike the ink they draw at Blackbird, the art exhibits aren't permanent and their two latest gallery offerings are familiar as well as something completely different. Like other street-inspired artists that the gallery/tattoo parlor has recently shown, John Hood's work will be familiar to Nashvillians who've seen his characters haunting a certain busy neighborhood in which many of us quench our thirst. Hood's Faces of the Street is composed of plywood wall sculptures drawn with spray paint, while Eric Oglander used photo-transfer, white paint and found objects to create Defaced. The work in his latest show is inspired by Olglander's five-month Mexican sojourn. And you didn't think there was anything fun to do on a Sunday night. Arriba!
Mondays-Sundays. Starts: July 12. Continues through Aug. 8, 2009
