Up On My Game Solo Show

Up On My Game is show dedicated to afro-cuban jazz, skateboarding, choco tacos and napping in parks. This has been the past 6-month inspiration for 179's mix of influences from neo-tattoo, northwest native american art and mexican catholic iconography. By layering color details and highlights, 179 paints a portrait of mischievious animals. These animals are stars of folk tales from around the world; from coyote to ananzi the spider. They will trick you, teach you lessons and remind you of your humanity. Enjoy!
