If you’re in New York City, we recommend you head on over to The Hole (until May 26th) where you’ll be able to experience an amazingly colorful exhibit by Holton Rower. The first New York solo exhibition for the artist, Pour Paintings is just that, a collection of paintings created by carefully pouring paint over plywood. The result is incredible color combinations that are stunningly psychedelic.
