Art Whino's "Block Party," serves as a reflection on art pricing and buying. Solo artist Daniel Fleres and 10 others participating in this exhibition are set to display hundreds of small paintings on wooden blocks. The little wood pieces vary in depth and are designed to be displayed singly, in groupings and even as collaboration pieces. The exhibition is designed around around the idea that art should be accessible to people of all ages and income levels. All works in the show will be priced at the same affordable price.

Life and all of its complexities is the source of artistic inspiration for Dan Fleres. Fleres creates streamlined portraits of mournful yet vividly colored characters against skillfully rendered backgrounds. His work is flavored with subtle, insightful views of pop culture and society.
