“Babes, Food, Rock & Roll” The Art of Browncoat solo exhibition

Opening: December 5th 6pm – 11pm

Please join us for a night of Babes, Food, and Rock & Roll to celebrate the amazing art of East Ends Very own Browncoat!

The man they call Browncoat, or alternatively, DJ Twinkle-Toes, is a graphic artists and DJ here in Houston. His work is pop art at its finest, mixing almost photo-realistic faces with cartoonish hair and clothing in his figures. It’s a mixture of toy store packaging mixed with communist propaganda that instantly grabs the eye and doesn’t let go. Much of his inspiration comes from his wife, and you can see her face peering out of many of pieces recreated with loving detail. He’s been a regular gallery exhibitor for the last ten years, having worked with Talento Bilingual de Houston, War House Gallery, Summer Street, and his second home at East End Studio Gallery.
