STELLAR- BOBBY HILL NYC ART EXHIBITION
STELLAR is a story of getting back to the basics in order to move forward and rediscover who I am as a visual artist. To me, this meant using my life as the subject matter. Taking more time than usual to create each piece and being very deliberate with the composition. Painting with the brush rather than drawing with the brush. Scraping away layers of paint and collage materials that’s been building up on each found wooden panel over the last ten plus years. Working with common house paints as my main choice of medium... and purposely limiting myself to using a small stock of paintbrushes I purchased a few years ago from a recently passed away friend. He found them while dumpster diving at a local art university. Although I’m known for my mixed media screenprints, creatively I believe there are other levels to ascend to. Here I begin at STELLAR -Bobby Hill

For Immediate Release
HARLEM BORN VISUAL ARTIST BOBBY HILL OFFERS NEW YORKERS A CHANCE TO WIN $10,000 PAINTING!
New York City - Harlem born visual artist Bobby Hill has created 200 unique art prints to celebrate his one-man show, "STELLAR", which opens this upcoming July 25-28 in New York City’s Lower East Side.
In an ode to Mr. Hill’s last NYC art exhibit entitled “BHILLboards” and the campaign used to promote it, Bobby is once again strategically placing art prints around the streets of Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx. Out of the 200 pieces, a ‘’golden ticket’’ will be enclosed in fifteen of the distributed print pieces. If you are lucky enough to find a print with the “golden ticket”, bring it to his one-man art exhibition on the closing day, July 28th, for a chance to win one of his paintings valued at $10,000.
The original prints feature the word “STELLAR” in RED juxtaposed on top of screen-printed images of ODB, Lana Del Rey and Nipsey Hussle just to name a few on thick cardstock paper.
Even if the piece you find does not have a ticket attached you will have a unique work of art and the opportunity to have it signed at the STELLAR Exhibition by Bobby Hill himself.
