Tonight in LA: "Facemaker" at Royal/T featuring May Cover Artist, Eric YahnkerJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 13 Apr 2011
If we could have told you last month when we announced Facemaker that Eric Yanhker was our May cover artist, it might have been more exciting. But tonight at Royal/T in Culver City, Ben Jones, Shepard Fairey, Takashi Murakami, Barry McGee, Kenny Scharf, Eric Yahnker, Jane Moseley, Olaf Breuning, and others will explore interpretations of the most universal element of human perception: the face.
Kathy Grayson of The Hole NYC is curating the show. And, as you may know now, Yahnker is our May 2011 issue cover artist, and Olaf Breuning has a 14-page feature. The show opens at 8PM.
"The exhibit explores the inherent tendency to see faces in all objects, which drives each artist to re-imagine the basic figure—whether idiosyncratic, fragmented, collaged, psychological, or geometric. With works from several New York and West Coast-based graffiti artists as well as those from The Hole, all the pieces on display—for the first time ever at Royal/T—will be for sale throughout the duration of the exhibit."
Featured in the show are works from contemporary young artists including the title piece by Ben Jones, in addition to Barry McGee, Kenny Scharf, Joe Grillo, assume vivid astro focus, Tomoo Gokita, Eric Yahnker, Jane Moseley, Olaf Breuning, KAWS, Ted Mineo, David Shrigley, Shepard Fairey, Eddie Martinez, Taylor McKimens, Francine, Speigel, Avery Newman, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Robert Lazzarini, Aurel Schmidt, Kembra Pfahler, Rivas & Tullie, Aaron Johnson, Brian Belott, Matt Leines, SWOON, Allison Schulnik, Clare Rojas, Jules de Balincourt, Michael Williams, Takeshi Murata, Anders Oinonen, Justin Samson, Misaki Kawai, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Dennis Tyfus, Katherine Bernhardt, Todd James, Matt Greene, Stefan Bondell, Spencer Sweeney, Nate Lowman, Mat Brinkman, Jakub Julian Ziolkowski, Billy Grant, Adam Tullie and FriendsWithYou.
