Visual Artist Knowledge Bennett displays a gallery of thought-provoking pieces

Visual artist Knowledge Bennett, owner of the new Know Contemporary Gallery in downtown Los Angeles, California opens a new show.

When artists make art they expose themselves to examination by others.  Even artists who create without emotion or connection to the individual pieces of art, such as an airbrush artist who produces one hundred of the same design over and over, daily, eventually there will be a piece of the artist personality laced inside of one of those designs.  A swirl on the end of the letters, his favorite ghosting effect. His essence will remain in the paint.

When the artist is motivated and pushed by external motivations, he will create the opportunity to display his art.  He will put his innermost into each specialized piece. Depending upon the contents of the artist, that essence might vary.

“I’ve always thought it to be the responsibility of the artist to help restore a degree of dignity, integrity, and sense of humanity,” explained visual artist Knowledge Bennett, owner of the new Know Contemporary Gallery in downtown Los Angeles, California.

Fusing contemporary images with large-scale screen printing, Bennett’s work makes statements concerning the realities of our current society, focused on the African American experience.  

Stark, monotone images contrast against the sometimes vibrant colors of each piece.  Those colors clash like the truth springing from the montages of messages cut and pasted together with classic newspaper footage.  Nixon stares at the viewers, his multiple faces, some in the inverse, some standing taller than the crowd. Images of Obama in a Clint Eastwood stance multiply like the end of a drunken western brawl.  Madonna still loving Pac, follows you down the back hallways, and the leaders of nations are screaming curses, combined.
