Last night was First Friday in Philly. I went to see another one of my PAFA alum friends’ show at the Goldilocks gallery. Avdo was another artist that I saw during my visit to PAFA at the Open Studio Night three years ago. What drew me to his studio was his drawings and paintings of the war crimes of Bosnia, and his bedazzling portraits of controversial world leaders (A series aptly titled “Bad Men”). I really enjoyed his works while he was in the MFA Program (As you may recall, we were both in the same show “Rude and Inappropriate” at the school’s Gallery 8).
