Jamian Juliano-Villani’s surreal, unsettling narratives are rendered in acrylics, implementing both brush and airbrush techniques. Found in these scenes are icons of popular culture and Western living, presented in ways that invoke examination, chuckles, and every so often, a bit of recoiling.
Trey Abdella’s wild acrylic paintings are packed with strange dreamscapes and pop culture iconography. Much of his work is built around the idea of a “shrine,” a makeshift monument to the various stages of growth and social reference points.
The acrylic paintings of Coco Bergholm explore the idea of camouflage in an urban context. Recent paintings, in particular, see the Berlin-based artist using pops of color, differing textures, and graffiti to explore this notion. A new show at Germany’s Affenfaust Galerie, titled “Echoes,” collects these new works.
