Opening Reception: Saturday, December 7 from 7pm to 10pm

The producers of the DOCUMENT the Fresh exhibition series are pleased to announce their next art show: Barry Bishop The Creative – Original Paintings and Prints; an art exhibition that celebrates the fine art of legendary Washington, DC artist Barry Bishop.

Bishop, who was influenced by Shirt King Fade, as well as attended Duke Ellington School of the Arts and the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design, was a major influence in DC’s early streetwear scene (’87) having created a number of the foundational designs that set the tone and direction for DC’s famed Madness Connection, which inspired him to start his own groundbreaking line B-Man Apparel.

Years later Bishop would move into the fine art world, via the medium of acrylic paint on canvas, to produce stunning large-scale portraits, using his signature colors of black and white, of some of the world’s most iconic and genre defying individuals such as Bob Marley, Patti Labelle, Jimmy Hendrix, and Tupac.

Join them for the opening reception on Saturday December 7th, from 7 – 10 PM, at Brookland Artspace Lofts 3305 8th St NE Wash, DC. Complimentary Hors d’Oeuvres will be provided along with beverages courtesy of Mezcal El Silencio and DC Brau.
