Wheatpaste art is kind of a new style for art galleries. Usually, wheatpasting artists show their work in industrial urban areas, illegally. It is an inherently ephemeral form, since it consists of thin paper covered with watery glue left to dry. At "Don't Take Vaccines," for example, Nick Mann, aka Doodles, makes his first indoor appearance. In this sense, he takes after Swoon, who also works with delicate materials in harsh environments. But visually, the two are completely unalike: Doodles trades in sharp-cornered, high-contrast, high-color beasties with headstrong opinions.
