GONZO GALLERY SOLO SHOW: IT NEVER GOT WEIRD ENOUGH FOR ME

Local teen artist Axel Livingston will be exhibiting a solo show of his work at the Gonzo Gallery May 1st – 14th with an opening reception, Saturday May 1st, 5-10 pm at the new gallery location, 625 East Hyman Avenue, Aspen, Colorado.

Axel is a 19-year-old artist with a technique that can be described as organized chaos; a combination of mixed media, vibrant colors, lines, and forms are used to depict his layered messaging.

Growing up in the Rocky Mountains, Axel has a profound connection with nature and a fascination with the ideals of Gonzo journalism. His work has been influenced by the writings of Hunter S. Thompson and by the art of Ralph Steadman.  

Multi-faceted, the interpretation of Axel’s art is left to the individual, but if asked, Axel describes his work as a subconscious reflection of his reality and mental state. Axel has struggled with OCD throughout his life and he uses his art to expel the overwhelming emotion and information he copes with. 

Axel hopes that his work will encourage others struggling with mental illness to understand the importance of self-expression and its ability to heal.

Axel received the 2020 Scholastic Art & Writing American Visions Award as well as several Gold Key Awards and will be studying Fine Art next Fall at the College For Creative Studies in Detroit. Michigan. Proceeds from sales of Axel’s artwork will go towards his college tuition.
