Asher’s Art Gallery (Mondays)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery

Dia de Los Muretos by Diego Rivera 1923 Fresco

  • This is a beautiful work by Mexican artist, Rivera. The piece is of a “Day of the Dead” festival. It is very colorful, and many people are seen wearing Calavara masks. The realism of the painting compels the viewers to become drawn into the festivities and thrilling music. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Boxer Rebellion by Jean-Michel Basquiat 1982-83 Part of the Daros Suite of Thirty-Two Drawings Acrylic, oil paintstick, pastel, crayon, charcoal, and pencil on paper

This is a fantastic work by “The Late and Great Surrealist”, Basquiat. The piece has various repeated words, bright colors, and strange humanoids. The first boxer has an earless, red face with a tiny build and red shoes. The second boxer has a humanistic face and netted stockings. He appears to be yelling, and there’s a noticeable scar on the right side of his face. We can also see his ribcage and spinal cord. The absurdity of the piece is what compels the viewers to it. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.
