Curated by San Francisco-based artist Poesia, “A Major Minority” is a survey of Othercontemporary Urban Artists from over 18 countries consisting of over a 100 artists. Expect to see an international sampling of art works that reveal the overall character of Urban Art and its relationship to the public as well as the contemporary art world.
This selection of more than 20 prints from A Major Minority includes work from 1xRUN veterans as Defer, Estria, Askew and Poesia, as well as first timers Bom.k, Drew Young, Moneyless, Morik, Pener, Sepe, Vesod, Xuan Alyfe, Vincent Abadie Hafez-Zepha, SatOne, Bezt, Basik, See One and COL. Each print is limited to just 50 and is A4 size for easy framing.
This RUN is numbered and chopmarked by Major Minority & 1xRUN.
Destruction and transposition are the crux Drew Young’s recent work. Young fractures his traditional oil paintings in order to force his figures into new and obscure contexts. He also draws from a bank of abstract marks to create balance between the erratically positioned subjects and the intangible—pushing him into action/reaction art-making. Young is internationally exhibited with shows in LA (Thinkspace Gallery), SF (Gauntlet Gallery), Tokyo (Amp), London (Rook and Raven), NYC (Re:Form Projects), Bogota (Come Together). With features by Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, Booooooom.com, Supersonicelectronic and BlueCanvas. Young has also found himself as the youngest instructor for the Federation of Canadian Artists and curator/organizer for Snag, the worlds only weekly live-painting raffle.
