NEW YORK, July 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — American actor, best known for his roles in Twilight Series, Disney’s ” Descendants,” and X-Men: Days of Future Past, Booboo ‘Nils’ Stewart, is set to make his first ever art gallery debut in New York City. This exciting exhibition will take place at the world-renowned Park West Gallery, located at 411 W Broadway, directly in the heart of the fine art community.
The events kick off with an invite-only media night and artist showcase on July 19th. Thursday, July 20th Booboo will make a special appearance at the charity ‘God’s Love We Deliver,’ to lend a hand and share his love for art. Then finally, on July 21st, Booboo’s showcase will then open to the general public.
His exhibition, which is titled Things I Don’t Know How To Talk About will feature a collection of thought-provoking and visually stunning artworks- including a series of sketches, sculptures, and a very special LIVE drawing “performance” by Booboo, accompanied by a DJ set as part of his creative process.
Stewart’s introduction to the art world has been met with excitement and anticipation. After focusing the majority of his Instagram posts on his fine art pursuits with over 2.3 Million followers, fans and art enthusiasts alike are eager to witness his multidimensional talents, and Booboo himself couldn’t be more thrilled; “Drawing ever since I can remember has always been the thing that makes me feel most like myself, growing up if I had a pen and some paper I’d be set.” His journey into the art scene demonstrates his passion for self-expression beyond the realm of acting, he goes on to say, “When you work on a film you have an entire crew who all have tasks to complete that make up the finished product and I love being a part of it. But I was looking for another avenue of creation that I could do on my own.”
In preparation for the debut, Stewart has dedicated countless hours in his Los Angeles studio, immersing himself in the creative process. The resulting collection is a reflection of Stewart’s personal experiences, emotions, and inner thoughts, translated onto paper with precision and artistry.
The debut of Booboo Stewart’s fine art collection in New York City is expected to attract a wide range of attendees, including art collectors, top-tier NYC media, local NY influencers, and fans. Stewart’s artwork has already garnered interest from venues and collectors around the world, solidifying his status as an emerging artist to watch.
John Block, Park West’s Executive Vice President, spoke about this exciting partnership, stating: “Booboo is a talented artist, he’s incredibly humble, kind, and easy to be around – truly a special and gifted guy. His father Nils is equally special and approachable and that’s pretty important to Park West, as we are also a family business.”
With over 50+ years of experience in introducing millions to the joys of collecting art, Park West knows a little something about offering ‘art for everyone’, and provides a unique opportunity at their SoHo gallery-museum by offering a diverse group of artists. With an impressive collection of works by some of history’s most renowned artists like Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Joan Miro, and Salvador Dalí’. In fact, for a limited time, Park West is one of the only galleries in the world to currently have Salvador Dalí’s expansive collection of Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy (c. 1308-20) on display to the public.
Additionally, the gallery features compelling contemporary collections from such artists as Michael Godard, Kre8, Tim Yanke, Hunt Slonem, Yaacov Agam, Mark Kostabi, and many others.
