New month, new art! This time our artsy team has selected their favourites from Guy Hepner’s current collection. As one of the top contemporary art galleries in New York City (based in Soho), you can only expect to find the most stunning art-works from international artists. Pluse, you can enjoy them all in one place (you’re welcome). Now, let’s roll to our September picks:
JEAN PAUL FAUVES: born 35 years ago in Costa Rica, he is considered the Andy Warhol of his generation, his work shows beautiful disfigured beauty. Don’t miss his brand new The Mickey Collection.
RETNA: born Marquis Lewis, he has become known for his long and geometric script, which he developed while looking towards Egyptian and Native American traditional symbols. The writing does not belong to a particular language, Retna explains, “I want my text to feel universal. I want people from different cultures to all find some similarity in it—whether they can read it or not.”
WANG GUANGY: One of China’s biggest artist and activist, he is a leader of the new art movement that started in China after 1989, and for his Great Criticism series of paintings which use images of propaganda from the Cultural Revolution (1966–1976) mixed with contemporary popular brand names from western culture, such us Disney, Omega or Porsche.
HERR NILSSON: HR is the pseudonym of this anonymous Swedish street artist, who became known for his satyric princess series, where he gives these loveable Disney ladies a dark side by portraying them with military weaponry. Ain’t he sweet?
SERGIO GARCIA: “I have always enjoyed the use of the unconventional as a base for my artwork. I enjoy creating art that people can relate to and that stimulates the creative subconscious. It is this desire to create a connection with the viewer that fuels my creativity.”
MESPLÉ: he stimulates the sense of the audience with his innovative technology-mediate art, creating suggestive sculptures that will make your imagination run wild!
MISTER E: it’s the pseudonym of this artist who is making art pop. His extravagant, vibrant work has taken him to the best galleries around the world. His series “The art of money” represents society’s love of banknotes, and we can’t get enough of it.
DERICK SMITH: “My work is about the interaction of the paint, as a physical object, with itself. It is intended that the work elicit a response or evoke a feeling which may arouse curiosity and allow the viewer to openly create associations without a specifically defined terminus.”
JEFF KOONS: Well, what is there left to say about Jeff Koons… he certainly does not need an introduction!
