Rotofugi Presents: "Robot Envy: Zenith" Group show & "Bear Necessities" new works by Chris Austin!

A dual show is opening at Rotofugi Gallery in Chicago this coming Friday, February 5th... and it's a must for all you folks out in the Chicago area. First up is the special book release and group exhibit for "Robot Envy: Zenith"! Robot Envy is an online community with thousands of fans and hundreds of artists coming together to celebrate the world’s best robot art. "Robot Envy: Zenith" features a collection of the finest robot artwork in existence. One giant robot book; over 60 incredible artists; illustrators and sculptors from around the world. The book features some of the most inspiring artists today—like: Jake Parker, Steve Talkowski (Sketchbot), Dacosta, Brian Despain, Boris Bakliza, Emerson Tung, Bambino Monkey and Eric Joyner—just to name a few! The book itself is an impressive full-color, 8.5 x 11 (portrait orientation), hardcover, 256 page art book. The interior pages will beautifully display all of the amazing artwork in vivid detail. No one has done this before until now. This is one GIANT robot book (published by Magnetic Press)! The exhibit will feature prints and originals by Dave Pasciuto, Amy Reyes, Mr. Walters, James Demski – JIMBOT, GABO, Travis Overstreet, Kyle Bice, Chris Boyd, Colin Craig, Jack Etheridge, Jim Terry, Jim Nelson, Dave Pryor, Stephen Neale and more! Opening from 7pm-10pm and running through February 28, 2016.

Also this Friday, February 5, from 7pm-10pm is the opening reception of "Bear Necessities", New Works by Chris Austin. Chris first exhibited with Rotofugi as part of 2013's Northern Lights Canadian artist group exhibit and they instantly fell in love with his evocative, lively style and, well, bears. His works, often painted on reclaimed wooden surfaces and found objects, evoke both a love of nature and a striking range of emotion and expression. This will be Chris' first US solo exhibit and Roto hopes you all will enjoy his works as much as they do. Chris will be in attendance at the opening... so stop in and say hi!
