The Compound Gallery is an extension to Compound's original creative office space. Compound was the hub of all things art, fashion, sports, and music. It served as a space where creative people and ideas came together to push the culture forward. Opening in mid-August, Compound's new gallery space will serve as an outlet for all forms of art from Photography, Visual Art and Street Art and Sculptures. The Gallery will be a more open and available space for art lovers and creatives to showcase their art, as well as a space to host events and brainstorming creative teams looking to be inspired and create culture.
LEVELS Episode IV: The BX
Brian Kirhagis aka BK The Artist
April 3, 2019 -
Life is defined by levels. The one above you - where you dream to one day reach. The one below; a reminder of where you've been and how it all began. And the one you're on right now in this moment, somewhere between a little further than before and not quite there yet. Each level has its own unique perspective. Everything depends on your view, therefore it's vital to choose your own lens.
This exhibition showcases 30 powerful pieces, both never-before-seen and favorites from previous collections spanning multiple years and techniques.
