In our very first colab exhibition with Shift Espresso Bar, we hosted a solo exhibition for the works of helo samo which kicked off on the first Thursday of 2018! Featuring some work that has not been featured on our website before and some brand new works that was added to his online portfolio we managed to put together a great show.
We feel honored that we have been granted this opportunity and look forward to stocking the Shift Espresso Waterway House and Greenpoint locations with new art every month. The owner, Luigi, is an artist at heart and loves that fact that there are so many local artists now getting the recognition and exposure they deserve – feeling equally honored that he can host these solo shows at his two shops.
helo samo’s works inspire an other-wordly experience, poignantly reminding us of some thoughts that we are sometimes too scared to face in our own reality. The most inspiring part of this artist is the fact that he creates his own pigment trying to be as earth-conscious and vegan as possible. A true inspiration and visionary we are very proud to host his work as part of our first Unsung Art x Shift colab exhibition and look forward to much more from this artist in the future!
This exhibition runs for the month of January at both Shift locations so be sure to make a turn and check it out.
