What started out as an experimental subject matter for CRAIG ANTHONY MILLER, turned into a four year obsession going through multiple series of paintings of a diety that became a staple and visual recognition for the Brooklyn born artist. Lord Ganesh or Ganapati, or any of the other 106 names he is referred to is the most popular diety within Hinduism. A symbol of prosperity and the remover of obstacles, Ganesh became a strong spiritual connection in the everyday life for CAM.
The new series of paintings comes to light after CAM’s attempt to walk away from the image of the “elephant man” and move on to his next endeavor. A demand from a few buyers set o a set of paintings and drawings totalling over 100 pieces. This series will involve a few other artist that have documented the existance and growth of CAM in DUMBO. Alex Bershaw, Gigi Bio, and Max Kelly are all great photographers that have captured CAM in the public light as well as the privacy of his home and studio. One 9, a studio mate will have a few collaborative backgrounds set within the exhibition. New artist on the DUMBO scene by way of Stockton California is James “Creative” Shields. Shields is a young artist that resides in Bed Stuy will introduce a few collaborations and his own interprations of Ganapati. DANIEL VREELAND a photographer and designer from Connecticut has a passion for the recycled arts. Vreeland photos will complete the exhibition with visuals from DUMBO ‘s historic sites and landmarks.
