American artist Scott Scheidly (previously featured here) has a new solo exhibition of his awesome Pink series of paintings opening at Spoke Art Gallery, which is a perfect excuse to share more of his work here with you.

“The Pinks” explores the cultural and social implications of color and how the predefined notions that accompany these perceptions can alter one’s identity and subsequent world view. By incorporating either hyper-masculinized or historically infamous figures, Scheidly further drives the point home, making a mockery of his subjects though biting socio/sexual satire.

Doesn’t Chewie look pretty? The Pinks exhibition will be on display at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco from August 1st through August 24, 2013.
