Last week, highly acclaimed artist James Jean (HF Vol.15 cover artist) opened “Parallel Lives,” his second solo show in NYC at Tilton gallery. Opening to a large crowd of eager fans who snaked around the outside of the building in anticipation, the show exhibited a menagerie of works including drawings, paintings and works that included 3-dimensional elements. The diversity of his works subtly echoes the title of the show, as Jean creates within a range of media while retaining a core aesthetic that is distinctly recognizable as his. The dreamy quality and narrative fairy-tale like works engage the viewers with their bold sizes, vivid, psychedelic color choices while still appearing intimate and familiar. Take a look at more of the work and exclusive opening night photos below.
