We are proud to announce “Melt Down”, our next exhibition at Project Space featuring a large-scale installation by artist Andrew Schoultz.
For Schoultz, art is an uncontrollable passion and obsession. Over the last decade, he’s compiled a repository of iconic images that he uses to tell stories about everyday life in America. In his murals, paintings, installations and drawings, Schoultz filters political commentary through the forms of graffiti art and underground comics, fused with clipart from the early 1990s and medieval renderings that chart history of man and nature.
In addition to showing his work and producing large multi-media installations in gallery and museum settings, Schoultz has spent a great deal of time creating murals and various works in the streets of America and abroad. He uses walls covered in his large-scale imagery as a medium to communicate with a broader audience, to inform and educate the public about current social and political issues.
The Project Space exhibition “Melt Down” will feature Schoultz’ life-size installation of a wooden army tank driving through a gold-leafed brick wall with falling telephone poles. Also on display will be a variety of his large-scale paintings, a sculpture, drawings as well as a brand new animation titled “Moving Eyes”.
