✨Artist Spotlight: Muhammad Zaman✨

“I Will Never Give Up”, 2016. Acrylic and Spray Paint.

Urban artist Muhammad Zaman is creating his own personal style through the use of languages and calligraphy. “I Will Never Give Up” is painted in an amalgamation of three different languages that all represent Zaman's identity. “English since I live in the USA, the Bengali, language of my fatherland, and Arabic which is the language of the religion I belong to...Since childhood, I was always fascinated by the languages, lettering and calligraphy of different parts of the world. Being a Muslim in the USA, there is a lot of negativity towards our tradition but I always look for ways to give something positive to people and what better way to do that than through the arts.” -Muhammad Zaman

Zaman’s (@zaman_art) work will be on view through this Sunday, October 22 as part of our Culture Shock exhibition, come see it before the show closes!

✨Artist Spotlight: Sandi Parker✨

Art is Not a Crime, 2015, Acrylic

“In cities we see a lot of commissioned murals but often times art on walls are considered as crime or vandalism. Personally, I don’t see it that way. Even things such as tagging I see it as a form of art. Instead of looking at a blank crumbling wall I’d rather see art on it. Art beautifies the city and it shouldn’t be seen as a crime.”
- “Culture Shock” Reception and Artist Talk

Sandi’s (@sandiparkerartist) work will be on view through October 22 as part of our "Culture Shock" exhibition!

Coming Thursday, October 12 from 6-8pm, Michael Fischerkeller (@m_fischerkeller) illustrates spray paint and stenciling techniques during this special demonstration for "Culture Shock," Target Gallery's group exhibition exploring socio-political issues through the lens of pop culture and street art. He will be spraypainting the sixth artwork in his Children of War series just outside the Torpedo Factory Art Center facing the waterfront.

About Michael's work in "Culture Shock":
"'Grace' is the first artwork in a new series on the incredible resiliency we witness in children who live on war zones. In spite of facing death, famine, drought and other horrible conditions that are a consequence of war, the light in children persists in radiating. This series seeks to highlight that light in a series of portraits of children that showcase the grace, determination, and defiance that these children are able to carry."
- Michael Fischerkeller
