Paradise Row is pleased to present Sticks & Drones, the solo UK debut and exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Eric Yahnker. If you remember, Mr Yahnker was the cover of Juxtapoz in May 2011, the one with the slice of pizza on a bed of garland. It was one of our favorite covers ever, and Yahnker continues to be one of the most clever artists working today.
Erotica // Wednesday, April 30, 2014
Juxtapoz favorite Eric Yahnker's colored pencil critiques of popular culture contain their fair share of erotic subject matter, equal parts titillating, off-putting, and irreverent. Yahnker was born in Torrance, CA in 1976. He received his BFA from California Institute of the Arts in Valencia. He lives and works in Los Angeles.

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.

Eric Yahnker is a contemporary artist born in 1976 in Torrance, California. His humorous, meticulously rendered graphite and colored pencil drawings and elaborate process pieces examine pop culture and politics. His work is represented by Ambach & Rice in Seattle, where he was included in an exhibition with Erwin Wurm and Raymond Pettibon in 2010. Since then Ambach & Rice has moved to Los Angeles, where he continues to exhibit.

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..."

Last weekend, one of the best booths in all of The Armory Show was Ambach & Rice's show with Eric Yahnker, titled, brilliantly, Party Sub/Sub Party. Yahnker, our May 2011 cover artist, filled the booth with his incredibly rendered pop-culture commentary, and also was able to obtain signed baseballs from Jesus, Abraham Lincoln, and Justin Bieber.

Our May 2011 cover artist, Los Angeles-based Eric Yahnker, has been having quite a few great years now, and whenever he is about to showcase new works of parody and incredibly detailed skill, we take notice. Yahnker is set to open Party Sub/Sub Party from March 8-11, 2012 with Ambach & Rice at the Armory Show.
