Lino Azevedo’s exhibit, “Lobotomy” is on display in Gallery I starting June 4th , through June 28th. Lino states, “Art can be a powerful communicator, sometimes the message is subtle and sometimes it’s aggressive.” His painting shows his take on social media and the disconnection society has created. “Recently I subscribed to cable television for the first time in my life. After only a couple of months of watching cable news and reality TV shows, I am mortified at our culture’s lack of engagement on substantive matters. In the information age, it deeply saddens me that we do not dive deep into real political and social issues that are facing our society.” Azevedo’s paintings take on social media and the disconnection society has created.
