Troy Gua exhibition “Do You See Me?”

Seattle artist Troy Gua exhibition “Do You See Me?” opening Thursday, July 9th at 6:00 p.m at Vermillion. Following a successful run at Seattle Art Museum Sales and Rental Gallery and a well-received showing at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival, Troy switches gears and takes a break from his popular ‘Pop Hybrid’ series to present a solo show of new work inspired by the online social networking phenomenon, the human desire for validation and his own forthright pursuit of notoriety

Troy’s statement for ‘Do You See Me?’: “Viral fame. Digital personas. Social networking obsessions. What we choose to see, what we choose to show and the universal human need for validation. This man’s personal quest for recognition and esteem. I’m Troy Gua. Do you see me?

Vermillion is located in Seattle's Capitol Hill's neighborhood at 1508 11th Avenue and is open Tuesday through Sunday, 4pm until late.
