David Fridlund’s Art at Hyde Park on Duval, Dec 6 – Jan 16th, Art Party Dec 7!

David Fridlund’s collection “Remnants of Weird” captures Austin in transition.

We’re pleased to display paintings by David Fridlund

at Hyde Park Bar & Grill on Duval, Dec 6 – Jan 16th

David Fridlund isn’t a native Austinite by any means, but in his seven years as an Austin resident, the Swedish-born artist has created some of the most poignant Austin-themed art the city has ever seen.

Offering an interesting perspective as an Austin transplant who arrived at the crux of the transformation of Austin from a small, ‘weird’ city to a fast-growing “big city,” Fridlund’s “Remnants of Weird” collection strikes a chord with both new and long-time Austinites.

Hyde Park bar & Grill, an Austin-original restaurant, is pleased to host Fridlund’s Austin-themed collection as both a “celebration of life” for the city we once knew and an open-arms welcome to the newcomers of Austin.

Fridlund’s pieces will be displayed Dec 6-Jan 16, with an Art Opening Party on Dec 7th from 5-7pm. We invite all Austinites both new and “old” to come see a veritable piece of history in the making,  the changing scene of Austin,  recorded using colored pencils.

Death or rebirth? It’s all in your point of view.

We’ll conduct an in-depth interview with the Artist on Dec 6th, and invite you to leave any questions you have for Fridlund in the comments of this post!

FROM THE ARTIST:

Art exhibition opening. This is the first time I am showing my work at a larger scale! I have been working for a couple of years now on a series of pictures from around Austin; places that are being torn down, altered or just places that I find attractive and beautiful or somehow interesting. I work with color pencils on paper.
