Ever since it opened in early 2018, Zeppelin Station has spent time and energy on amping up Denver’s art and culture scene. From their involvement with the annual street art festival CRUSH to their efforts towards bringing well-known guerrilla artist MissMe to the Mile High, Zeppelin is taking their role in curating artistic experiences seriously. The most recent art announcement is a pop-up shop starting on January 18 that will showcase the colorful, emotional and provocative work of Canadian-born artist Pony. For the opening day of the pop-up, Zeppelin will have a special happy hour and “carnival fun” as well as an after-party at Big Trouble.
Although her real name is Gabrielle Laïla Tittley, Pony is a better brand for the quickly emerging artist because of its fun and simple undertones that also incite a certain curiosity. According to her website, her “style is largely influenced by surrealism, music and her feelings.” It goes on to explain how Pony ascribes to being a “highly sensitive” person who embraces those emotions rather than shying away from them. This sometimes tumultuous sea of feeling informs her art, and the result is a series of paintings, clothing designs, wall decorations and other products that are colorful and gestural. Many of her pieces are full of hidden meanings or with hints of double entendres.
Pony’s work will be available at Zeppelin to peruse and purchase from January 18 until mid-February 2019. The hours to visit are as follows: Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Zeppelin Station is located at 3501 Wazee Street, Denver.
