"Ghetto Metro: Sirron Norris"
2005-02-26 until 2005-04-09
Lola Gallery
San Francisco, CA, USA United States of America

On Saturday February 26th, The Lola Gallery opened with a solo exhibition featuring top San Francisco artist and muralist Sirron Norris. Norris is a fine artist, freelance illustrator and art instructor. He classifies his artistic output as a “cartoon literalism” - the art of portraying cartoon iconic references in everyday literal situations. One of his primary goals has always been the promotion of cartoons as an art form.

“Not only can Sirron’s work be construed as a fusion of realism and digital design, the various signature illustrations he employs evoke a strong sense of childlike imagery and fantasy”, says gallery director Claire McGovern. Ghetto Metro is Norris’ first conceptual multi media installation combining elements of mural painting, sculpture and conceptual diorama all in his inimitable style. This installation will be on view in the dedicated “Ghetto Metro” Room.

Norris graduated from the Art Institute in Pittsburg and moved to San Francisco in 2000. Since his relocation, he has garnered considerable attention in the local art scene and held several artist residencies including at the de Young Museum and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. He was recently awarded the 2005 Fall Residency at San Francisco Recycling Center and just completed the design of new sets for season nine of “Comedy Central Presents”. Norris has worked as a children’s art instructor and also created numerous murals, some of which can be viewed on Balmy Alley, Clarion Alley, Bryant and 20th Street in the Mission District.
