JT Burke’s “The Divine” at Gallery 825

JTBurke“The Divine” is an immersive, floor-to-ceiling mural installation featuring 80 linear feet of energetic, abstract art created in artist, JT Burke’s signature digital style. This special installation is unveiling on Saturday June 25th at Gallery 825 in West Hollywood.
Using photos of vintage costume jewelry as building blocks, JT has created a mural that offers a narrative of innocent beauty, greed and competition, prophesies of destructive change, renewal and a blissful conclusion. Two abstract deities look on from the center of the room, leaving viewers to wonder who rules this domain. Feel free to attend the opening, or visit anytime during the exhibition.
