  The Eerie Kindly Ones:david-stoupakis and Menton3 at Last Rites Gallery

People always enjoyed storytelling. The very first mythological stories were packed with tension, emotions and mysterious creatures. Some were beautiful and angelic other ghastly and demonic while some resided between the two opposites. New exhibition of works by david-stoupakis and Menton3 The Kindly One is inspired by ancient mythology and it’s not for the fearful types. The artists are united by the myth of The Kindly Ones, beautiful and terrifying demons of justice and revenge. The Kindly Ones group exhibition will be on display at Last Rites gallery in New York.via:widewalls

“The Kindly Ones” at Last Rites Gallery.

Currently on display at Last Rites Gallery in New York City until August 15th, 2015 is the two person exhibition “The Kindly Ones” which features work from artists and collaborators David Stoupakis and Menton3.  The two artists are masters of dark artworks that include scenes I would relate to nightmares.  However, more often than not, there is intense beauty within these dark portrayals of the imagination and that is a great pleasure when viewing these work - to realize that even in darker places there is beauty.

Please continue below for more pieces from “The Kindly Ones.”
