This piece of original artwork comes ready to hang.
In homage to Detroit native J Dilla, Lyons created a series of donuts named after each track on Dilla’s classic Donuts
album. The 31 unique wooden donut characters were individually cut, painted, and screenprinted during his residency at here at Inner State studios.
Opening Friday, October 21st at Inner State Gallery, Brooklyn artist Kevin Lyons brings his first Detroit solo exhibition Baker’s Dozen to Eastern Market. “Detroit is such an amazing, interesting place. When I was developing my show at Inner State I first and foremost wanted to make it a celebration. Bury it below and raise it above the approach of art. Just make stuff that is fun and fun to look at. And that is what I do... that is what my Monsters do. They party, riot and rap, play and build, cipher and slow roll... Baker's Dozen is all of that wrapped into one show,” Lyons said while working in the gallery’s studio.
