    After hitting a couple of openings in Chelsea, the AF team headed to the Lower East Side to see Cojo’s “Losing Our Figures” opening at Le Salon d’Art featuring 13 works on canvas & 45 works on paper. We arrived kind of late but the opening was still in full effect. The crowd was fun and festive as everyone seemed to be enjoying the art and having a really good time. I met Cojo a couple of years ago and I was very happy that he finally had his very well deserved solo show. The place had wall to wall art and the work was pretty impressive. There were some colorful pieces varying in sizes mixed with smaller black and white pieces and large round paintings. The small ones were more abstract and the larger ones were very animated and colorful. Cojo is a NYC based painter, illustrator, arts blogger, and School of Visual Arts (SVA) alumni. He is also the creator of ArtSucks.com and Editor-in-Chief of Artiholics.com. The show runs from November 12 to December 9th, make sure you stop by to check out Cojo’s fantastic show.
