Joshua Bienko
Where: Lipscomb's John C. Hutcheson Gallery
When: March 3-31

Joshua Bienko has never exhibited in Nashville before, but his smart, punchy work piqued our interest right away. The Knoxville-based artist pulls from pop culture and high culture in equal measure, and images of Yosemite Sam or fractals made from Air Jordan silhouettes appear alongside drawings that recall everyone from Philip Guston to Chris Johanson. We're still not certain what Bienko has planned for the Lipscomb space, but with this kind of multidisciplinary creativity (he makes videos and sculptures as well), our expectations are high.

Below, you can look through a sampling of Bienko's basketball-centric work: Air Jordan logo patterns and paintings based on Metta World Peace.
