About the Artist
WU YUÉ (伍月) IS A MULTIDISCIPLINARY ARTIST WHO SEAMLESSLY BLENDS POP ICONOGRAPHY WITH SURREALIST FORMS.
Born in Beijing, Yué's art practice utilises a range of mediums, including painting, animation, directing, and illustration. Often employing a range of famous cultural characters and icons - from Michael Jordan to Casper the Friendly Ghost - Yué has crafted his own signature collagist style that reimagines art in the age of immense social, political and cultural change. After obtaining a degree in graphic design and animation from ENSAD (École National Supérieur des arts Décoratifs), Yué has collaborated with numerous brands and creatives including Cartier, Nike, Apple Music, Beats by Dre, Hennessy, and Junya Watanabe.
IN HIS VISUAL AND DIGITAL PROJECTS, JAPANESE-AMERICAN ARTIST KATSU QUESTIONS NOTIONS OF REALITY AND FICTION BY CONCEPTUALLY INTEGRATING IDEAS OF VANDALISM, COMMERCIALISM, AND TECHNOLOGY.
A research fellow from the Free Art and Technology Lab, a collective of creative technologists and hacker artists, KATSU's work engages with technology, public intervention, commercialism, privacy and digital culture through the use of new media practices, including drone painting, digital media and crypto art. After gaining his BFA from Parsons School of Design in New York, KATSU has exhibited in numerous high profile exhibitions including Beyond The Streets in Los Angeles and Born in the Streets - Graffiti at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain in Paris. In 2015 he created Dronescape Summer for Coney Art Walls. KATSU lives and works between Brooklyn and San Francisco.
ROOTED IN MODERN POP CULTURE, THE WORK OF MEXICAN ARTIST CHITO HAS BECOME SYNONYMOUS WITH THE MEDIUM OF AIRBRUSH PAINTING AND ICONIC IDIOSYNCRATIC CHARACTERS.
Renowned for his self-taught hallmark style, Chito's aesthetic has transcended gallery walls and appeared in a variety of media forms including NFTs and wearables, making him one of the most prolific contemporary artists to emerge in recent years. His signature airbrushed tags have appeared in collaborations with Supreme, Arc'teryx and Givenchy, and he has exhibited artworks in Seattle, New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto, Paris and Milan.
MATT MCCORMICK IS A MULTIMEDIA ARTIST RENOWNED FOR HIS CONTEMPORARY TAKE ON THE ICONOGRAPHY OF THE AMERICAN WEST.
Reflecting the conflicting histories of his home state of California, McCormick has developed a striking visual language that explores the nostalgia of a fabled past with the contemporary realities of poverty and strife in Downtown Los Angeles. By fusing chromatic landscapes, Western heroes, cowboys, and contemporary popular culture, McCormick's work embodies the true spirit of America, while offering commentary on the human condition, replete with renegades, risk takers and outlaws. His work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in New York, Hong Kong, Miami, London, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Aspen, and San Francisco. McCormick lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
