BRIAN KIRHAGIS: EARTH
Treason Gallery is pleased to announce it’s February solo exhibition, Brian Kirhagis: EARTH.
Brian Kirhagis, also known as “BK The Artist,” returns to Treason Gallery for his second solo exhibition in two years. An undeniably talented painter, Kirhagis’ true passion lies in using his brush as a tool to spark dialogue on social injustice and timeless philosophical themes.
Kirhagis’ most recent body of work, “EARTH,” showcases a new series of regal portraiture. Exploring the idea of the “Sacred Mother” as the matriarch of all living things, Kirhagis uses flora and vegetative growth to construct the forms and faces of women. Kirhagis speaks to the current culture of accountability and the sincere need for respect and understanding of women in today’s world. The conversations in his work have always been charged, and “EARTH” is no different.

Whenever I hear women say
“Dear Heavenly Father...”
It makes me sad.
I wonder why she prays to man
when she is already Mother Earth?
Men are cruel.
We created a heaven in the sky
To disguise the heaven inside her thighs
Dear Heavenly Mother forigve us...
BRIAN KIRHAGIS | New York, NY
Brian Kirhagis, a.k.a “BK THE ARTIST”, is an internationally renowned painter whose unmistakably unique work and strikingly original concepts are laced with socially conscious messages. These qualities combined with unparalleled consistency and production have elevated BK into one of the art world’s brightest stars.
Inspired by the human experience and armed with an uncanny ability to make the viewer feel and see art, he deftly sifts through an impressive range of substance matter utilizing several distinct styles. Brian’s signature technique of weaving together double images and hidden elements using shape and color allow him to tell a story on canvas with paint. The viewer’s mind deciphers several layers while simultaneously following a broader narrative within the same piece.
BK is fearless and brazen in his approach; often tackling the most complicated aspects of our society with equally complex compositions. His voice and perspective on current events and social issues are a vital part of today’s lexicon as he has become widely regarded as one of the leaders of his generation.
In an oversaturated landscape Brian Kirhagis shines as the rare package of talent and substance. From humble beginnings in Baltimore, this self-taught artist’s rise from obscurity has inspired a rapidly increasing fan base, garnered critical acclaim, and attracted celebrity and top flight collectors from around the world.
