Currently on view at Gallery 30 South in Pasadena, California is artist Vakseen’s excellent solo exhibition, “The Peace in Perfection.”

Drawing inspiration from his 90’s childhood, fashion & pop culture, childhood obesity, struggles with personal image & the African-American experience, Vakseen’s abstract portraits serve as a visual dialogue on our society’s idolization of beauty, the cosmetic enhancements endured to meet the status quo and the fragmentation within us as we strive for perfection in a world driven by unrealistic standards. Although his artwork mimics collage or mixed-media, each piece is meticulously hand-painted to blur the boundaries between perception and reality.

The exhibition will be on view until September 29th, 2019.
