BARRY McGEE, DAN MURPHY, & ISAAC TIN WEI LIN’S “DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICES” AT FLEISHER/OLLMAN
Coming together at venerable Philadelphia gallery (since 1952!), Fleisher/Ollman, kindred spirits Barry McGee, Dan Murphy, and Isaac Tin Wei Lin assembled last weekend to open their group show, “Department of Neighborhood Services,” to a crowd of faithful fans, many of whom had made the trek from NYC for the event. Despite the presence of Twist, the show is not an exhibition of street art or graffiti, per se, but rather a collection of like-minded “Urban Pop” art with distinct references and homage to the aforementioned genres but through the filter of contemporary gallery fine art process rather than street work. As usual, Barry’s work is stellar throughout and his inclusion of funky sculpture and ceramic works add a nice touch while Murphy & Tin We Lin are newcomers with complementary graphic styles that round out the show nicely with color & humor.
