Caleb Weintraub


“Cloudy with a Chance of Apocalypse” is a new exhibition by painter Caleb Weintraub currently on display at Jack the Pelican Presents in Brooklyn. This exhibition is characteristic of Weintraub’s hyper-violent apocalyptic scenes where children rise together and take control. In these new works, the children venture into surreal landscapes to seek and kill any remaining adults, while parading around in plastic cartoon character masks. Weintraub’s paintings are saturated with information and describe a world where morals have fallen and children act without consequence. This month, the artist exhibited in a group exhibition titled “Contemporary Imaginings” at the Mobile Museum of Art in Alabama, closing January 7. Past exhibitions include “…With the Bathwater” at Projects Gallery in Philadelphia (2006) and “Pop goes the Apocalypse” at Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, S.C. (2005). Weintraub has participated in several artist residencies including The Contemporary Artists Center in North Adams, Mass., and the Santa Fe Art Institute.
