Friday night saw the opening of Australian artist Meggs first solo show at Inner State Gallery in Detroit, Michigan and the Inside the Rock Poster Street Team was on hand to cover the incredible show and bring you the pictures (Click them to enlarge).
The show of over 40 new paintings and multiples explores the wondrous decay of social morality stemming from modern society’s obsession with pop culture and overindulgent materialism, and continues MEGGS’ perpetual fascination with dualism and finding beauty in tragedy. The city of Detroit plays a major influence in MEGGS’ philosophy behind Spoiled Rotten, as he created an entirely new body of work during his five-week residency at Inner State Gallery and 1xRUN.
Among the many highlights of the show I think everyone's favorite was the interactive creation of art. Participates were given a slingshot and some paint balls to shoot at a wall about 10 feet wide and 15 feet high, see the picture above of Meggs standing in front of the wall. If they got 3 bulls-eyes they got a signed show flyer from Meggs. People had a lot of fun with this and through the night it transformed into it's own piece of art created by all those that attended.
The remaining art for sale is online at 1xRUN.com
