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.
