Paul Anagnostopoulos: We Can Be Heroes
Solo Art Exhibition at the Leslie-Lohman Project Space (127-B Prince Street, New York, NY)
Opening Reception: Friday, January 17th 6-8pm
On View: Saturday January 18th & Sunday January 19th 12-6pm

We Can Be Heroes is an exploration of mythological narrative and desire. The hero is the idealized example of human strength and beauty. Echoing these classic forms, the work highlights the impossibility of attaining this otherworldly level of perfection. These paintings serve as visual manifestations of imprisoning emotional states, ending in either triumph or pain. Vulnerability and melancholia reveal a more human side of these otherwise all-powerful godly bodies. The paintings dismantle society’s disaffinity towards male intimacy and celebrate a tender masculinity. This is Paul Anagnostopoulos’s solo show debut in New York. In 2018, he was a finalistin Metrosource’s Reclaiming My Pride Art Contest.
