Paul Romano : WorkHardened

the toothless cat is pleased to announce the forthcoming solo exhibition of artist paul romano this october 10 from 2pm-11pm. paul has worked in the music industry for over 10 years, creating the album artwork for popular bands such as mastodon & godflesh among others. we had the great fortune of being introduced to paul's work in person via a visit to his studio this summer, & were blown away. the exhibition promises to show a lot of the original work used for the album covers, but in this new context of our gallery, they gain a new meaning, transcending their original intent. the work itself is executed with classical precision from a master, at times steeped in myth & with a dark aesthetic. look out for a studio visit on fecal face soon! this show is not to be missed! x
