Rufus Faulk / Inspired by my Surroundings

"My work is inspired by my surroundings, it is beautiful and it is cruel, it is hostile and it is kind. As an artist, I employ art to address issues to awakening the interest, and to inspire. My subjects are drawn mostly from personal experiences, both past and present."

Faulk’s work is all about the people he knows and the neighborhoods where he lives and works. The paintings are heartfelt depictions of people and that inspire the artist and give his work a simple honest look at Boston and its’ people.

The exhibition will be on display April 7 - May 16, 2014
