They make art, they’re hot and they’re all in NYC right now. What else do you need to know?
If you think you have already seen everything, you should really pay a visit to Erik Jones, Alex Yanes and Hueman in So Far, So Good at Joseph Gross Gallery Chelsea. The carefully elected artists in this exhibition are all experiencing a breakout year in 2014. While riding the same wave, they all came up with the most interesting ideas about how to celebrate their own creativity and success for the show.
A round of applause for internationally recognized LA street artists Hueman, Erik Jones (trained as an illustrator and fashion photographer) and Alex Yanes (that presented a number of works in different mediums and materials including a 12 ft. totem pole constructed from oil drums). Their works are featured in a colorful palette that allows the eye to bounce from one wall to the other in a superimposition of visual stratagems that reveal the desire for each artist to gain the attention of a wider and more receptive audience.
Do you know what I’m talking about? So Far, So Good. Well, evidently. There’s only one way to know for sure. This is a great opportunity to see three breakthrough artists in the same room and try to imagine what it means to produce images that come directly from a mixture of objective reality, creativity and individual vision.
Erik Jones, Alex Yanes and Hueman: So Far, So Good / On View: Oct. 9th – Nov. 1st, 2014
