CentralTrak is pleased to announce the opening of LIQUID ANALOG, an exhibition of paintings and drawings by visiting artist and Houston native El Franco Lee II.
Bright colors, densely-packed compositions, and elongated human forms make for a dynamic and almost over-stimulating perspective; yet, Lee’s “Urban Mannerist Pop Art” depicts scenes of the full range of human experience, including tragedy and anger.
A third generation resident of Houston’s 5th Ward, son of the County Commissioner, and the nephew of a Black Panther, this amiable artist has politics and protest in his blood. His socially reflective paintings confront controversial and unsettling subject matter—such as, hip-hop cultural turf wars and the tragedies of post-Katrina New Orleans. In addition to acting as a 21st Century historical painter, Lee creates fantasy images which are visual mash-ups of popular entertainers, super heroes, and contemporary sports figures.
