Inner State Gallery and 1xRUN are proud to welcome Los Angeles artist Shark Toof. An entirely new body of work, “I’m Shark Toof, Who The Hell Are You?” is an expansive examination of Toof’s continually evolving style that explores a harmonious mix of his signature shark icon with pop culture and comic book inspirations. The show will feature all new paintings, hand-painted multiples, stencil works and prints that blend Toof’s signature street aesthetic alongside his refined fine art gallery works.
"Growing up with the first comic book release of Ninja Turtles in 1984, I identified most with Raphael. He was named after the 16th century painter Raphael, and is usually depicted as being aggressive, sullen, maddened, and rebellious. Not only did I relate to his character, as a teen with angst, but Raphael is a perfect parallel to my sharks." - Shark Toof
