Sticks and Stones present "How the West Was One" for June 13 ArtWalk

Sticks & Stones Seattle is pleased to present “How the West Was One”, the first-ever West Coast solo exhibition of one of New York’s most promising young painters, Jay West. “How the West Was One” will run from June 12th – August 6th with an opening reception with the artist Friday June 12th, from 7-11 p.m.

The show will include some of West’s known pieces, including those shown at 2014’s Art Basel, as well as new compositions in what has become his signature style. West’s art is characterized by mixing opposites and colliding worlds, all underscored by the finesse of his classically-trained hand. West paints with deeply adept traditional skill yet his his work is anything but expected.

West’s expressive pop art style boldly speaks to the wide range of topics he grapples with in his art. From religion to technology, Americana cartoons to Greek mythology, West explodes the canvas with his color, shape, concept and delivery. Though often drawing on classical themes, West subverts the traditional narrative with his abstract, surreal and graphic style, an increasingly recognized hallmark of his work.  Many of West’s pieces are 5 feet or larger, making the viewer feel almost voyeuristic in the intimate delivery of West’s subjects.

A native of Harlem, NY, West has been quickly gaining national and international recognition for his work.  He has shown extensively in New York, as well as Chicago, Miami, San Diego, Harlem and the Hamptons. West has been featured by NY Daily News, Complex Magazine, Elite Daily and Hypebeast, among others. Additionally, West has collaborated with ASAP Ferg, ASAP Rocky, Alicia Keys, Porshe, BMW, Puma, Footlocker, Heineken and more.
