RAW:Brooklyn presents GLIMPSE.

Opening Reception: Thursday, July 30th, 8:00pm -12:00am


WHO IS DON LISY? Don Lisy was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and creates his art as if revolting against the Midwest sensibilities that dominate the critical and popular mind sets of his hometown. In?uenced by Francis Bacon and Egon Schiele, each of Don's works is created in one session. By immediately succumbing to the emotional energy that inspires his work, Don feels he is best able to represent that emotion if he can complete that work before the feeling dissipates. Each resulting work is more of a self portrait of an emotional event rather than an image concerned with aesthetics. Don attended the Cleveland Institute of Art where he studied Printmaking and Painting. from 1992 - 1995. Don is currently living in Brooklyn, New York and continues to dedicate himself to his own personal artistic vision.
