Aaron Nagel Studio Visit

We just couldn’t wait till March to see Aaron Nagel’s newest paintings, so we headed over to Oakland this week for a sneak peek. His two bedroom apartment serves as a painting studio, photography studio, and even design headquarters for Aaron’s web company. Every inch of wall space is covered with paintings. Although Aaron claims he’s ready to get them into the gallery, we know he miss the company of these stunning ladies. By exploring Aaron’s home we learned of his 10 year stint with punk bands, his grandfather’s WWII hero status, and his version of man’s best friend: a floppy kitty named Ty. Take a look and be sure to stop by the opening reception of Marks: New Works by Aaron Nagel at The Shooting Gallery on March 6th, 2010 from 7-11pm.
