Oz in the News 3.14.14

Kevin-Tong-Wizard-of-Oz-RegKevin Tong and Martin Ansin Mondo Show Featuring ‘Aliens,’ ‘Flash Gordon,’ ‘Wizard of Oz’  Most artists have a style. A unique, original look for their art that distinguishes it from the rest. Most artists, however, aren’t Kevin Tong or Martin Ansin. Just when you think either artist is best at one thing, they’ll change it up and do something totally different. Realistic, exaggerated, mechanical, lyrical, Tong and Ansin are unique for being so diverse. And now, the pair are teaming up for a Mondo Gallery show based on fantasy and sci-fi. Ansin and Tong’s show opens at 7 p.m. March 14 and remains on display through April 12 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas.
