Born and raised in New York City, I grew up seeing how city environments foster a type of rebellious, intelligent, "everyman's" creativity. From street art to public sculptures, and even subway performers, New York City's breed of art is unlike any other. I'm a young curator, marketer, and artist working with other NYC artists to help build their brands. After starting to work with my cousin on an installation art company, studiospacenyc.co, and driving some success, I've continued linking up with artists, and I'm now working with around 10 artists. I am helping to market, merchandize, and strategize their artwork.
My aesthetic favors a contrasting of natural versus man-made forces. I like to see a struggle against nature or humanity in artwork, as that's part its purpose, I think. I've approached this aesthetic through different paths in the last couple years. I've published a minimalist literary & arts magazine, Beechwood Review, since 2015. That's evolved to focus on multimedia minimalist poetry that blends art / words and natural environments (like a found leaf – or the pages of a book, in erasure).
The artists and art I'm planning to showcase will share the common theme of being New York City artists. I have in mind a few installation and sculpture artists and a number of painters. Many of the painters have roots in grafitti and street art, but have since transitioned beyond that. There's still remnants of the style in their work as you can see in the Paul Eugene Renna example.
The artists working in 3d (sculptors/installation) create works of staggering repetition, born from organic processes, modified by the human hand. They're textural and often interactive.
