If you haven't heard of or seen the works of Derek Nobbs, I encourage you to take a look at what he has been up to lately. A man of many talents, he has been honing his craft over the many years that I've had the pleasure of knowing him. His upcoming solo exhibition, " Dead Men's Tales," is a culmination of hard work and pure talent that will suprise, enchant and intrigue. Imagery laden with environmental and historical themes flow throughout his body of work, leaving the viewer peeling away at the layers of the story behind the painting.
The exhibition opens this Friday, May 11th at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle.
