Friendly Petting Zoo: A Pop Up Art Show says
Treason Gallery is pleased to announce a special pop-up event in collaboration with Enjoy Denial and The Piranha Shop-Denial’s ‘Friendly Petting Zoo’. Opening reception will be held on Friday, October 7th from 7pm-12am at Piranha Shop.

Canadian artist Denial’s exhibition will showcase over 30 new works, highlighting his iconic satirical visual imagery. Touching on consumerism and corporate greed with sarcastic undertones Denial’s work is equally exciting and humorous. Denial invites his viewers to take a second look at the con-
stant interaction with branding and it’s affect on the human condition.

Denial is a master of self propulsion. Maintaining an ongoing global street-campaign of over 500,000 stickers, placards and murals. Intended as a conceptual means of marketing absurdism, DENIAL also challenges traditional notions of graffiti and public art through his bold visual subversions. In 2012,

DENIAL started ‘Free 4 All Walls’ which is the largest public art project of its kind in South West On-
tario. Bringing artists from around the world to beautify and re-invigorate public walls around Windsor, the government funded program has been a huge success in supporting the local community and promoting the value of street-art in contemporary society.

Denial most recently completed a mural in Seattle’s Capitol hill neighborhood on the Richmark Label Building this past August during the Seattle Art Fair. Using his strategic blend of pop imagery and intricate patterns, Denial’s newest narrative has been celebrated and shared by all who come in contact with it.

Denial’s ‘Friendly Petting Zoo’ will on display and open to the public through Sunday, October 9th.

Join us at the opening reception on Friday, October 7th from 7pm-11pm at Piranha Shop located at

1022 1st AVE S, Seattle, WA 98104.
