Return of the Litvak

Austin, TEXAS – Following a successful inaugural exhibition, DORF presents Return of the Litvak, a selection of new work by Austin-based street artist ANGRY CLOUD + DESCND. A prolific street artist, ANGRY CLOUD + DESCND has showered Austin with his signature clouds for the past few years; making them is a cathartic expression for him that reclaims public spaces from pervasive, bland development. The artist often paints his imagery directly onto cut-out, repurposed cardboard and wood, attaching them to street poles, signage, highway overpasses, and overlooked urban spaces. His characters appear to react to the surrounding chaos and noise and incorporate intriguing wordplay that calls into question systems of power. This show draws parallels between atrocious human conflicts of the past and today's political climate as ANGRY CLOUD + DESCND takes over the DORF gallery and grounds with an immersive multi-media installation.
