Mighty Tanaka & BRIC present: Shaun Leonardo @ The Volta Art Fair


We are very proud to announce our partnership with BRIC Media & Arts to present the work of artist Shaun Leonardo at the Volta Art Fair 2016.  Featured in the special curated section of the fair titled Something I Can Feel by Derrick Adams, this collaboration reflects the core of Leonardo's work, highlighting the notions of masculinity and strength in the stereotyping of men and the underlying reality of the human condition and ultimately their vulnerability.  Through a series of charcoal drawings depicting famous boxers such as Mike Tyson, Jack Johnson and others and mirroring it with the epidemic of police brutality cases and the media's role, Leonardo expresses the double standards and struggles that African American men face in American culture.  

Please join us for this blockbuster exhibition at the Volta Art Fair, March 2nd - 6th, on Pier 90.
