Mighty Tanaka presents "Elegant Discord" OPENING RECEPTION FRI. NOV. 12th 6-9 PM

Mighty Tanaka presents:
Elegant Discord

Featuring the works of Peter Halasz, Adam Miller, Bruno Perillo & Fedele Spadafora


As the tides of change sweep across the world and the traditional balances of power start to shift, the surge of conflict rattles across the land.  The effects of this turbulent wave are strong and the outcome leaves people disjointed and searching for meaning.  Mighty Tanaka is proud to bring you our next installment entitled Elegant Discord, which features the artwork of Peter Halasz, Adam Miller, Bruno Perillo & Fedele Spadafora.  These four highly talented neo-realist artists explore the evolving struggle of the human condition.
Elegant Discord contains powerful imagery that spans from isolation to nostalgia, as the work deals with the pressures of war and the mental aftermath incurred.  The figurative paintings and ghostly vistas juxtapose the beautiful with the sinister, creating an in-depth view of the current state of the world. 
Removing the veil of both brutality and madness, Elegant Discord explores the varied perceptions of divergence and the embodiment of its many viewpoints.  Through both oil paintings and graphite sketches, the artwork symbolizes the raw emotion, uncertainty and execution of the changing dynamics of the world.
