PITTSBURGH
– Zombo Gallery, Pittsburgh’s home for hip lowbrow art, announces the second solo exhibit by local artist Nathan Mazur; Mini Monsters and Tiny Terrors… a collection of pint-sized paintings, opening October 3rd, 2009.


Mini Monsters and Tiny Terrors is an exhibit of miniature paintings (2” by 3”) of monsters, ghouls, cryptids and other things that go bump in the night. The subjects for the exhibit were collected from myths, legends, folklore, literature, and film. All are rendered in the artist’s seemingly innocent, saccharine-colored, cartoon style.

Nathan Mazur is no stranger to working on a miniature scale. His previous solo show at the Zombo Gallery, “Wee Beasties”, was a collection of 50 tiny paintings of invertebrates, completed in the span of about two weeks. Having a life-long obsession with anything deemed scary or creepy, along with a lot of leftover miniature canvases from his previous show, gave birth to the idea of rendering diminutive monstrous forms in acrylic paint.

 

Mini Monsters and Tiny Terrors runs from October 3rd through October 16th, 2009 at the Zombo Gallery, located at 4900 Hatfield St. in Lawrenceville. Opening reception is Saturday, October 3rd  at 6pm . Pieces will be available for sale online the following day at www.scaredofbees.com/minimonsters/minimonsters.htm. The gallery hours are Fridays, 5pm-7:30pm. Additional hours by appointment. For more information on Zombo Gallery, please call 412-904-3703.
