Neon Knights Opening at Minna

Henry Lewis

Henry Lewis & Lango Oliveira are the "Neon Knights", two tattoo artists who came together for the current exhibition up at 111 Minna Gallery.  This show comprises solo works by both and a few collaborations - many massive, dominating pieces and some small, intricately presented ones. They are stunning works in mainly a black and white palette - a heavy metal mix of tattoo art, street art and ancient Asian watercolors. Dragons, grim reapers, feathery birds of prey, babes, tigers and knights in armor - with a little science fiction fantasy thrown in.  This impressive show is up through the month of March and very worth laying your eyes on.
