Plant Riverside District’s Grand Bohemian Gallery will feature paintings by Birmingham, Alabama artist John Lytle Wilson from July 1-31. An artist known for his brightly colored paintings and murals, John Lytle Wilson depicts cartoon robots, monkeys and other creatures invading traditional landscape paintings. His work has been featured in New American Paintings, and his murals can be found on noteworthy buildings, including the Birmingham Museum of Art, the University of Alabama-Birmingham’s Specialty Care Clinic, Facebook’s Data Center in Huntsville, Ala. and more.
A firm believer in the power of images, John Lytle Wilson uses robots and animals as stand-ins for traditional human subjects and as a method for exploring larger issues in his work, including consciousness, free will and mortality.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Plant Riverside District’s Grand Bohemian Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The gallery is closed on Mondays.
