In his first solo art exhibit, Isaias Crow explores the juxtaposition of street art and abstract expressionism in sculptural paintings that blend graphic design, graffiti art and community activism. Just as a Kaleidoscope uses shifting prisms of light to form fresh images, in Crow’s work geometric shapes collide into loosely figurative forms.
Using wood instead of canvas and spray paint instead of oil, the human form is made abstract and presented through transparent layers of drips and splatters. Crow’s kaleidoscopic eye brings together brightly colored panels with fluid perspectives. Kaleidoscope compels the viewer to look past the explosion of color and behold the humanity within.
A native of El Paso, Texas, who now calls San Diego home, Crow has a background in street art and received aBachelor’s Degree in Media Arts and Animation from the Art Institute of San Diego. By working in close collaboration with architects and designers, he specializes in community and public art projects.
Since 2008 Crow has been a member of The Prizm Process, a collaborative that uses art and culture to increase civic engagement in underserved communities. This summer, The Prizm Process has teamed up with The Bookman, a nonprofit literacy organization in “Books, Murals and Miracles”: multidisciplinary art workshops geared toward San Diego’s youth.
