A man-eating shark, a Nagel-esque pinup (think Rio by Duran Duran), and characters reminiscent of ’60s-era Ugly Stickers (made famous by Basil Wolverton and others) are all stars of Give In To The Skin, a key piece from local artist Louie Chavez’s Contemporary Art Month exhibit “Future of the Future.” Opening Thursday at Plazmo Contemporary (a new gallery Chavez runs with James “Supa” Medrano), the poppy genre-hopping show explores “the cycle of fashion and social trends” via large-scale paintings and mixed-media prints rendered with Microsoft Paint. A standout at last year’s Pop Yo Trunk (a pop-up component of Una Noche de la Gloria), Chavez was chosen by Mexic-Arte Museum as the inaugural Changarrito artist in a series inspired by the mobile art cart trend initiated by Mexico’s Máximo González. Free, 7-11pm, Plazmo Contemporary, 1101 W Woodlawn, (210) 837-0561, Check out our full online calendar of upcoming events here:
