Luna Rienne Gallery: Old Souls - Monty Guy and Telopa
Review and images by Janey Fritsche: Channeling Picasso's intensity contrasted by youngsters with tattoos. This imaginative concept is used by Monty Guy to represent several famous artists. Complementing these are Telopa's paintings featuring surrealistically-rendered women displayed in ornate handmade frames.
