Dylan Kraus in Vice

Opening Saturday night at Entrance in the Lower East Side is Night Light, a show of paintings by the New York-based multi-hyphenate artist Dylan Kraus. New York by way of Ohio, Kraus is an outlier of the highest order: a psychedelic shaman with a stick 'n' poke flash sheet; a Rorschach inkblot that looks like Alfred E. Newman; Fragonard on extra-strength Blue Dream. Sure, it’s a downtown art opening on a weekend, so you can fully expect “emperor’s new clothiers” to be out in droves—but you’re not going to an art show for the people... are you? Either way, you’re likely to meet a lot of characters in New York, but you're not gonna meet anyone who doesn't believe in Dylan.
