Kristen Liu-Wong, Lauren YS, Boy Kong, Kashink get "Feral" at Superchief New York

Jul 27, 2018 - Aug 30, 2018Superchief Gallery, New York

This past weekend, Superchief Gallery New York opened its wildest show yet -- a multi-disciplinary mural, installation and painting show featuring the combined masterfully colorful, wild energies of four artists: Kristen Liu-Wong, Lauren YS, Boy Kong and Kashink.

 The combined ferociousness and vibrant colors of these artists create a tangible wonderland. The line between human and animal, real and surreal, are shattered as mythical creatures encounter extreme moments of pleasure, pain and power.

Feral Ways exhibits the multifaceted talents these artists possess. A wide array of large and small scale work will takeover Superchief Gallery, both inside and out. We are honored to have these artists fly in from the Bay, LA, Orlando and France to execute a collaborative mural on the face of our gallery - almost one year after Yok & Sheryo blessed us with their site specific piece. Their venture into large scale work will continue inside the gallery with an installation by Kashink and individual murals wood panel, up to 16’ wide, by each artist.

Contact Superchief Gallery NY for more details about works available.
