Bring Me Your Pierced and Tattooed Masses

November 22, 2002

Steven Assael, an instructor in the Illustration Department, has an exhibition currently up at Forum Gallery, 745 Fifth Avenue (floors 4 and 5), through December 7. The show features paintings that depict gothic punks, body-pierced modern savages, and other demimonde dandies usually seen only under the cover of darkness. The work probes a subculture that revolves around manufactured theatrical personae, worn like body armor and characterized by representations of evil and hardness.
