Dandy Fresh featuring Marcello Pope
Local contemporary artist, Marcello Pope aka Rosie Lee captures the stylish flair of the Congo Sapeurs subculture in his first solo art exhibition, entitled Dandy Fresh. These “Dandies,” with their silk handkerchiefs and bright, tailored suits use flamboyant duds as a form of fashionable resistance against the socioeconomic realities of their community. Rosie Lee has added his own unique flavor and rendered these walking works of art to canvas.
