AUGUST PM FEATURED ARITSTS
PM ARTIST: SAM TUFNELL
Part of my creative desire is to find new ways to convey traditional subject matter as well as my own childish motives to move against the art establishment. For me the figure will always be the ‘original sculpture’ and abstraction will always be it’s ‘rebel child’ however both share a common thread with monumentality and public art. It is a conflict that I am constantly challenged by and the more I try to resolve the issue between monumentality and sculpture the further my subject matter devolves into a kind of anti-monumentality.
PM ARTIST: FADI EL CHAMAA
"After Artificial intelligence takes over, our flaws will be the only thing that differentiates us from machines. Seeking a global Arabic language that springs from spontaneous expression and shared collective, interplay of personal/universal psyche and cultural specificity.
At war with self- censorship." - Fadi El Chamaa
PM ARTIST: NICOLAS V SANCHEZ
Nicolas V Sanchez is a rising star in the art world. With three shows this past month at various Hamptons art events and a myriad of publicity over the past half decade, he is certainly someone to keep an eye on. His ability to render in almost any medium has us looking forward to seeing whats next.
