Vertical Gallery is very proud to present ‘MEAT my Friends,’ an interactive solo exhibition featuring British painter, muralist and sculptor Louis Masai.

‘MEAT my Friends,’ which runs from May 1-22 at Vertical’s 1016 N. Western Ave. location, assembles 13 new paintings of varying sizes, all on reclaimed wood, alongside a series of hand-embellished vintage lithographs. This one-of-a-kind exhibit also features a custom-built chicken-coop installation titled ‘What came first?’ complete with webcam-enabled, remote-control chickens — developed by Louis in collaboration with artist and creative engineer RoboJ — letting viewers experience the show and explore the gallery setting in real time from the comforts of home. ‘MEAT my Friends’ opens on Saturday, May 1 from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.
