1xRUN Presents “I'm Shark Toof, Who The Hell Are You?"
A Solo Exhibition by Shark Toof

Opening to the public Friday, May 16th from 7-10pm, Inner State Gallery is proud to welcome Los Angeles artist Shark Toof.  An entirely new body of work, “I’m Shark Toof, Who The Hell Are You?”  is an expansive examination of Toof’s continually evolving style that explores a harmonious mix of his signature shark icon with pop culture and comic book inspirations. The show will feature all new paintings, hand-painted multiples, stencil works and prints that blend Toof’s signature street aesthetic alongside his refined fine art gallery works.

“This new body of work is a blend of my graffiti roots which is where I really developed my own unique voice.  At the same time there’s also an aspect of this work that is just not taking yourself too seriously, kind of vandalizing your own icons,” Shark Toof said while preparing in Detroit.

Taking up residency in Detroit at the Inner State Gallery/1xRUN studio and artist loft, Toof has worked with several local artists to re-imagine his past icons onto unique new mediums. With the idea of keeping accessible hand-painted multiples, prints and originals at the core of this exhibition there will be no shortage of cleverly woven icons in a collaborative explosion of Toof’s visual landscape.

“I like Detroit because it is very do-it yourself and I am a very do-it yourself artist so it is a great fit,” Shark Toof said.

Perpetually on the move in the continually changing worldwide street art scene, Shark Toof continues to rank among the genre’s most recognizable artists. His work has been seen both in the street with massive murals, iconic wheat paste banners and marker tags as well as in most cutting edge galleries with immersive installations interwoven with masterful contemporary paintings.  Although much of Toof’s outdoor work is primarily executed with aerosol, his strong technical skills and mastery with more traditional mediums has continued to place his work alongside some of the world’s best.
