Deitch Projects in Soho is ground zero for anything pop - culture related in the art world. Show after show the gallery continues to be a beacon on light in a dark sea of cookie cutter stores passing themselves off as galleries.
The current show is a crown jewel in the pop culture experience. "Stephen Sprouse, Rock on Mars" is a retrospective of work from Stephen Sprouse that coincides with the release of the stephen sprouse book. The book was created by super talented brothers Roger & Mauricio Padilha - the creators of MAO MAG and owners of MAO public relations. The show captures the spirit of Stephen Sprouse and his view of the world. The fusion of punk-pop fashion adorned with graffiti in day-glow neon colors are unmistakably Sprouse. This is a rare chance to be surrounded by his work - from his day glow tights to his Warhol animal print mural. Brilliant! It is an out of this world experience - as if you have landed on another planet - in a strange new world.
Sprouse is dominating New York this month with windows at both LV boutiques in town as well as Full Lexington Avenue windows at Bloomingdale's 59th Street.
Check out the show at Deitch Projects Soho through Feb. 28th.
