SOME MAGAZINES UNDER THE MATTRESS

NATUREL

Returning with his first solo exhibition since his sold-out Scope Art Basel Miami debut, Naturel has created a cohesive collection with S.M.U.T. that is sure to turn heads. With nearly 50 new mixed media paintings, S.M.U.T. pays homage to classic gentleman's magazine covers with visual notes from the masters of pop art. These new works recall childhood dreams and seductive centerfolds with a clean cut veneer of sophistication through Naturel’s signature blend of cubism and surrealism.
