Recently opened this past weekend in NYC’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery were solo offerings from artists Audrey Kawasaki (the cover artist of the upcoming HF Vol.25) and Jeff Soto (HF Vol.16 cover artist). Both artists showed significant growth in their work; Kawasaki with the introduction of bold, black graphic shapes while Soto explored the use of human figures in tandem to his long limbed organic creatures. Both artists employed vibrant color palettes — a departure for Kawasaki’s usually muted color schemes, while Soto’s work exploded with bright neon hues. Take a look at opening night photos below.
