Influential Artist Swoon is Exhibiting at the Treason Gallery

The Treason Gallery in Seattle will be hosting the 'Every Portrait Is a Vessel' by renowned street artist Swoon. The show will be an amalgamation of new and old work that clearly points out the creative's presence and influence within the narrative of the urban art scene.

As one can infer from the name, Swoon's work will be largely portrait-based as she seeks to "capture the human condition." What is quite interesting and engaging is her extensive use of mediums — from handmade paper that is characterized by its frail properties to decayed building materials that contribute with rawness.

The 'Every Portrait Is a Vessel' exhibit will showcase some of the street artist Swoon's most notable works that involve "woodblock printing and papermaking," among other elements.
