Local artist Skeez181 will host his inaugural all sculpture show alongside fellow friend and artist TKNY this coming up Friday, October 26 from 7pm-12am at Chuntaro Jones Studio.

Come out to see the exhibition, Escondidas (“In Hiding”), which will showcase 13 of Skeez181’s polymer clay hand-sculpted masks. Santos Guerrero aka TKNY will also be displaying some of his new art, drawings, and prints in the show. Let it be noted that this show is one night only, admission is free! Complimentary refreshments will be served while supplies last– make sure to bring your 21+ ID to receive alcoholic beverages.

Houstonian Santos Guerrero aka TKNY– originally from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico– uses many colors in his surrealistic drawings. View some of his work on his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TKNYTKNY.

His name derived from a lyric in an 80’s hip-hop song, Skeez181 is a Houston-born former graffiti writer/artist in practice for over 20 years. Influenced by ancient Aztec hieroglyphics, futuristic imagery, and graffiti, Skeez181 began his art path by drawing flyers for local house parties as a school-aged teen in the late 80s and early 90s.

After experiencing an arrest and four-year probation after painting freight trains in 1996, Skeez181 decided to stick to painting legal walls, commissions, and murals. Of these projects include live canvas painting at the 1997 Westheimer Street Festival and commissions for many Houston businesses and national corporations such as Coca-Cola, Universal Records, and ADV Films. He also painted the Eatsie Boys food truck. Tight.

Skeez181’s current services include murals, canvases, illustrations, logos, kids rooms, themed rooms, flyer design, live canvases, sculptures, and graffiti exhibitions. For more information on Skeez181 and to see pictures of his many commissions, visit skeez181.com.
