MRTN SWFT is Dead: An Exhibition of His Work
Saturday, September 26th, 2015 // 5-11pm // rsvp @ FB
Hole in the Sky and the Estate of Martin Swift are pleased to announce the death of Martin Swift at the age of twenty seven. Born March 3rd, 1990 in Takoma Park, Maryland, Martin began drawing and painting at an early age, going on to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon. A burgeoning artist, his life was cut short at the announcement of his death on August 9th, 2015. When questioned, Martin replied “The decision to announce my death was a difficult one, but since then my work as appreciated substantially in value and perceived legitimacy. I believe my passing has been very beneficial to my career, and I look hopefully to a new horizon of posthumous work.” Martin is survived by his parents and twin sister.
To commemorate this milestone, join us at Hole in the Sky on Saturday, September 26th to view selections of Swift’s oeuvre. Paintings, illustrations and prints will be on display. The night will be a celebration of life. Featuring:
