Bureau is pleased to present «Caressing the Asphalt,» an exhibition of new works on paper by NYC based artist Ariel Klein. The show will open on June 24 and run through July 1.

Klein, a D.C. native, previously worked out of the 52 O Street Studios in NW Washington D.C., and the Purple Coconut Gallery in Silver Spring. He moved to NYC in 2016, to design and build, maxillofacial prosthetics for the Bronx, VA Hospital, and continue his pursuits as a professional artist.

His drawings will be displayed at Bureau, Washington D.C.’s newest skateboarding shop, and DIY culture hub.

The drawings range from quick contour pen sketches to brightly colored pencil works. The pieces are both vulgar and playful, with themes that run from sex acts and voyeurism, to skateboarding tricks and drug use. Despite, the, raw, counter-culture nature of his series, Klein’s draftsmanship calls on a more traditional canon, which lends a degree of absurdity and humor to the exhibition.

Born in Washington D.C., Ariel Klein has previously exhibited his work at The Mansion at Strathmore, Gallery O on H Street and The Garrison Art Center. His work hangs in the Voice of America and the United States Marine Barracks. He holds a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and spent time studying at the University of Madrid and The Art Institute of Chicago.
