Philip Slein created the Philip Slein Gallery alongside partner Tom Bussman to showcase the kind of art that strikes their fancy. The pieces on display represent the figurative artistic styles of vintage and new age national and local artists. Many of the retro-contemporary exhibits tend to show where art has been, as well as venture into predictions of where art is going. Other areas of focus in the arts are on the underground art styles from New York and Chicago, with some local St. Louis figurative art sprinkled in. One can find examples of graffiti, comic book art and satirical propaganda. It's an interesting place to spend an afternoon. Stop by during normal business hours, or make an appointment.
