Eric Yahnker "EBONY & BENGHAZI" @ Ambach & Rice, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
One of the most interesting, irreverent, humorous, and talented artists working in galleries today has to be Eric Yahnker, who controls a colored pencil and critique of pop culture better than anyone. The May 2011 cover artist just opened a brilliant new show, Ebony & Benghazi, at Ambach & Rice in Los Angeles, featuring both massive colored pencil works on paper, installation pieces, and apparently, a naked woman hanging out in the gallery.

We hadn't checked in with former cover artist Eric Yahnker in a long time, and before he opens his new solo show, Ebony & Benghazi at Ambach & Rice in Los Angeles on September 6, 2013, we wanted to show a trio of his new works. His new massive colored pencil works feature such titles as The King Grabs Crotch, Vulcan Leather, and Liberace, You Sneaky S.O.B #3.

This past week, we made it out to the opening of May 2011 cover artist, Eric Yahnker's new solo show, Virgin Birth N' Turf, at the Hole in NYC. The exhibition featured meticulous, two-foot colored pencil and graphite drawings to towering ten-foot works on paper; from tiny sculptural interventions to massive three dimensional arrangements.

May 2011 cover artist and Los Angeles based fine artist, Eric Yahnker is set to open his first NYC solo show, Virgin Birth 'N' Turf, at The Hole tonight, September 4. One of the most talented drawers we can think of, with meticulous details of some of the most innane pop-culture topics, Yahnker's notes his new works "provides a mad lab where I get to swab the inner-cheek and place under a microscope a petri dish of the contemporary American experience in the shadow of another blisteringly contentious Presidential election..."
