No offense to the other great artists in the "Juxtapoz x Superflat" exhibition, but Devin Troy Strother is the best in the world at naming his paintings, sculptures, installations, and neon pieces. The show takes place at Pivot Art & Culture in Seattle from August 4—7, 2016, and Devin will be showing both a neon piece and a painting.
Devin will name a work "The Ohhhh no my nigga, you just pulled the I've moved on the abstraction now trick" - Jasper Johns to me (but what happen tho?". Or, " That National Geographic shit: Creeping on the come up." But most importantly, Devin makes strong work with range and intricacies that is both rare and intensely detailed. His installations are floor-to-ceiling immersive, his early works would feature rubber-bands as a prominent material, and he turned neon into comic book style. He is like Matisse for the 2016 world.
