Having opened “Ego, Addiction & Other Bedtime Stories Exhibition” on May 2 Sam Flores has provided a exceptional collection of works featuring the dark side of Flores. “I just wanted to show all these different worlds. The whole idea is balance, and maintaining a balance of light and dark. Showing your demons and angels and everything in between. I’ve been into all these old fables and there’s all these different children’s books designers that I like, so I what I did was take some old drawings of stories and flip them my way. Like Rip Van Winkle and all those kinds of bedtime stories. I take those and twist them to nowadays and the troubles people are dealing with. I wanted to just combine them and use that look in my show.”
