Pub Burgundy Lion, arguably the most passionate football-centric (or soccer, for the rubes) bar in Montreal, is the co-presenter of Gol Carajo!, a vernissage by painter and muralist Ricardo Cavolo at Station 16 gallery. The theme? Football.
It all starts tonight at 6:00 p.m. at Station 16 (3523 Saint-Laurent), with the after-party at the Lion set for 10:00 p.m. DJ Psychology will be on hand.
Amadeus magazine recently wrote of Cavalo:
Cavolo is equal parts artist and storyteller, weaving intricate narratives with detailed brush strokes and vibrant colors attracting emotions from curious glances. Each of Cavolo’s portraits are smeared with personality, emphasizing not only his keen storytelling but the astuteness and depth with which he creates personas.
His portfolio speaks volumes of his abilities with a brush, ranging from paper to murals to the sides of swift moving trains. Cavolo-touched facades attract thousands of eyes in cities worldwide—you can find his large-scale work all over Europe, North America and the United Kingdom.
Gol Carajo! runs at Station 16 until November 5.
