The gallery Kavi Gupta (Chicago) is representing the estate of Roger Brown (1941-1997).
The work of Roger Brown is inseparable from a perspective combining art, religion and politics, and delivers a testimony to modern life through colourful figurative painting, often set in urban landscapes. A distant cousin of Elvis Presley, Roger Brown’s folk painting is inspired by the aesthetics of comics, theatre or the decorative arts. His work is attached to the Chicago Imagists School, a name coined by curator Don Baum who organised an exhibition by the same name at the Hyde Park Art Centre at the end of the 1960s.
The gallery Kavi Gupta is preparing to welcome the exhibition “Tony Tasset: Me And My Arrow” from 18 March to 23 April 2016.
