SOUTHFIELD, Mich., September 16, 2015Park West Gallery is proud to announce its newest exhibition featuring renowned Miami artist David “Lebo” Le Batard.

Park West Gallery presents “The Art of Invention,” an exhibition featuring the expressionistic artwork of Lebo from Sept. 20 to Oct. 18 at its Southfield, Michigan location.

This will be Lebo’s inaugural exhibition at Park West Gallery. The public invited to celebrate with an opening reception on Sept. 20, 2015 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

“It’s been a particularly creative time for me and Park West has been a huge part of that, for which I’m eternally grateful,” says Lebo. “The opportunity to have a solo exhibition at the gallery in Michigan is a really special continuation of this wonderful relationship.”

Lebo is recognized for a variety of mediums, including murals, paintings and sculptures. He is the innovator of what he calls “Post-Modern Cartoon Expressionism,” which blends cartoon imagery with symbols, bold colors and linear composition to convey emotion and story.

Visitors to Detroit’s Hart Plaza may already be familiar with Lebo and his style, as the artist has graced one of its walls with a mural.

For this new series, Lebo has studied and incorporated everything from ancient alchemy, Roman history and Greek philosophy into his artwork. The exhibition invites visitors to explore humankind’s quest to discover the furthest reaches of inner and outer space.

“Fearlessness and an unparalleled creative drive have catapulted this young artist into the vanguard of contemporary painters,” says David Gorman, Gallery Director for Park West Gallery. “With an ever-increasing collector base, definitive work ethic, and more ideas than can be painted, expect to hear the name ‘Lebo’ – that is, if you haven’t already.”

Lebo attended Florida International University in Miami, and further developed his artistic skills during a residency at the International Museum of Cartoon Art in Boca Raton, Florida.

Among his accomplishments are painting the hull of the Norwegian Getaway cruise ship, creating the official artwork for the 2003 Latin Grammy Awards, painting murals in the American Airlines Plaza in Miami, and live-art performances with acts such as the Beastie Boys and DJ Paul Oakenfold.

Admission is free to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. For more information or to RSVP for the opening, call 248-354-2343 or visit www.parkwestgallery.com.
