DC Gallery is very pleased to present, in his second show in Denver, one of the most recognized artists of our time… SHAG! If you were one of the 300+ attendees of last years show at Th'Ink Tank, you were probably in awe of how much attention a SHAG show can create. His works have captured the heart of popular culture and with it, fans from all levels of society. While his originals are nearly impossible to come by (being snatched up as soon as they are made) SHAG has kept his art accessible to the general public by releasing numerous limited edition serigraphs. These Serigraphs have taken on a life only comparable to baseball trading cards; highly sought after, coveted and skyrocketing in value over time. Once advised by a New York dealer that if he were less prolific he could charge considerably more, make larger commissions and work less, SHAG replied, ”I like to work”. SHAG dismissed the idea, preferring to ignore the “Art World Elite” and stay accessible through prints and merchandising, and follow the road of artists such as Keith Haring. Not only is his art accessible, so is SHAG; preferring to be at all his openings and visit with the fans. Last year Denver received one of the highest compliments; SHAG touted his Denver show as “one of his favorites”. This coming from someone who has an exhausting schedule of 8 shows per year all over the world, including regular shows in Paris, Tokyo, LA and New York. But then again, we always knew Denver was spectacular!
