Sometimes I visit art galleries in the evening after work. Something always stands out. Today it was the painting seen below. Canadian painter and printmaker, Philip Guston uses abstract expressionism with cartoon vibes to create vibrant works. Most of the pieces highlight social realism. The exhibition, Philip Guston: Painter, 1957 – 1967 is on until 29 July 2016 at Hauser & Wirth in Chelsea, New York.
