Eye of the Creator....Brandon Cox

randon Coley Cox is not you average flash in the pan neo-negro artist. For years no the Baltimore native has been making making his own way through the art world not by swab parties and socialite events but buy actually producing thought proving art and being a mentor to others in the field.

I recently got a chance to talk to Brandon about his artistry at his gallery space in Soho before his latest show opened.

- #3 from a series of parallels, Acrylic on Plexiglass

- 46%, Digital print

- Figure #2, Gel Transfer, Glitter, Oil and Collage on Canvas

Brandon's next showing will be the "I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER" exhibition.

"I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER is an exhibition created by an international group of artists who met one year ago in rural Maine, at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. This summer, these artists reunite to form a five-day multi-media exhibition at the former convent of Saint Cecilia’s in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The broad range of works on view reflect the stylistic pluralism of our era and present the fruits of an artistic community that continues to prosper. With 60 artists on its roster, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, celebrates creative exchange, collaboration, and the mission of the Skowhegan community at large."

It takes place Friday July 9th through July 14th at Saint Cecilia Convent, 21 Monitor Street, Brooklyn, NY
