Devendra Banhart – Some Drawings
November 9 - December 15, 2007

Devendra Banhart by Mitch Meseke

Opening reception: Friday, November 9, 6-8pm



"Known mostly for his catalogue of folk music songs that some have described as “psychedelic,” Devendra Banhart is a San Francisco-based artist and musician whose small, fine-line ink drawings combine strange and sometimes beastly human and animal figures, ornamental framing devices, abstract symbols and bits of language to create oddly charming works that defy definition. Intimate and hypnotic, Banhart’s works on paper share affinities to Tantric diagrams and Indian narratives, giving rise to fantastic private worlds."

Looks like James Surls to me, and that's cool, man...
