On August 26th, Gallery 1988 in Venice opened the latest solo show of Nathan Stapley. Entitled “Same Gang”, Nathan created 20 watercolor paintings with pop culture icons as influence. “Greaser Party” below features characters from such movies as The Outsiders, Grease, and there is even Lenny and Squiggy from Laverne and Shirley. There is a few paintings setup like these large group portraits, and a few smaller ones that have a “VS” vibe to them, much like the “Great Showdowns” series by Scott Campbell. Overall, “Same Gang” is a great show, and it’s fun to see how many of these pop culture references you can get on the first look. Head on over and check out the full show.
