Hangar 18 is very proud to present “EYE will devour everything in SIGHT” a solo exhibition of Mats Stromberg’s extraordinary paintings and art prints. San Francisco underground art heavy-weight Mats Stromberg will be exhibiting dozens of new paintings, prints, and books – including a new series of amazing lenticular pieces, which will be made available to the public for the first time at the opening on February 7, 2014 at 6 pm to 11 pm.
Mats Stromberg (Mats!?), celebrated underground artist, lives in Oakland and works as a silkscreen printer in San Francisco.
Mats was born of Swedish nationality. He grew up with a love of comic books which gives his art an iconographic pop vocabulary, drawn from this popular medium, which he subverts, layers and re-sequences at the command of his surrealistic imagination. Mats paints, prints and continues to publish hand-made, screen printed art comics with titles like: Ragu, Prego, S’not for Kids, Sicko, Eyesore, Asiaddict, and the upcoming Burmese Daze.
His art graces the cover of “Street Art San Francisco: Mission Muralismo,” the 500 page encyclopedic chronicle of San Francisco Mural Art and Street Art; Mats Stromberg is very active on the streets, just having finished a large mural in Clarion Alley in late 2013, and has painted countless murals in San Francisco.
Hangar 18 is a showcase for artwork in the unique setting of Chuck Sperry’s screen printing studio in Oakland. The H18 Project is an ongoing pop up gallery where we present collectors with a unique studio experience, visiting the iconic Bay Area artist Chuck Sperry and artists who have collaborated with or influenced him.
