Chet Zar's 'ALL HALLOWS' EVE'
Copro Gallery presents Chet Zar's "ALL HALLOWS' EVE" solo art exhibition and Halloween Costume Party! Chet has created an amazing body of work with paintings that are all a tribute to Halloween along with a ONE NIGHT EVENT where Copro Gallery will be transformed into a ULTIMATE HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARTY! Movie Props, Pumpkins, Pickled Punks, Bales of Hay and Evil Scarecrows celebrate the Spirit of the Season!
About the exhibition Chet Zar says "To achieve a cohesive visual style, I took inspiration from horror illustration from the 60's. I used cool colors similar to the covers of many of the ghost story books I used to read as a kid. My overall concept was to merge these influences into my own style of dark surrealism and create something that is both nostalgic and modern at the same time. I have always dreamed of creating a series of paintings inspired by my love of Halloween and "All Hallows' Eve" is my tribute and realization of this dream for my favorite Holiday"
As always this Copro Gallery Event is Free to the public. Costumes and/or gothic attire is encouraged and full costumes will be rewarded with a free 'ALL HALLOWS" EVE' Poster and candy!

Drawings by STANISLAV
In the front of the gallery Copro presents the dark drawings of Stanislav. With a collection of his latest works all inspired by this special exhibition for 'ALL HALLOWS' EVE'!
Krawczyk Stanislav is an artist hailing from Kiev, Ukraine, a place currently being torn apart by
civil war. It is a frightening, uncertain situation in his homeland, but Stanislav is no stranger to
adversity. Born in 1984, he came into this world diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and suffering from
a degenerative eye condition which severely affects his vision. These potentially limiting factors,
however, have never been a hindrance to Stanislav as an artist. Instead he perseveres, using all of his pain, frustration, and fear in his craft. He transfers these things into emotional works of art that are distinct, unforgettable, and incredibly inspirational.
He tackles art in the most primeval form, scratching the darkness from his subconscious onto paper. Stanislav takes these tenebrous musings and manipulates them using modern technology with surprising results. This is raw, emotive, work filled with chaos and purpose, wherein you glimpse the artist's true self. It is a frightening window that reveals our gutteral instincts. Stanislav
is for the art world what Black Metal is for music, primal, powerful, and pure. His work has garnered the well deserved attention and respect from a host his artistic peers in the Dark Art community.
