While Don Pablo Pedro himself has been working for years, he says it wasn’t until he was laid up after a surgery that amputated one testicle that he was really able to bring his art to fruition. Appropriately, most of his imagery features sexual mutations, violence, and depravity.
This show is made up of muslin scrolls painted with, as he puts it:
“anatomical abnormalities, oozing orifices, and sexual oddities. Pasty figures desecrate one another situated in an empty space, alone, or engaged with others in orgasmic and violent activity.”
So come for the drinks, stay for the art, and leave guaranteed to have the most frightening wet dreams imaginable.
Pandemic is at 37 Broadway between Kent and Wythe.
