B. 1991, Taipei. Lives in New York.

After an internship at Jason Wu in New York, Taiwanese artist John Yui, with a background in fashion and visual arts, began creating and selling temporary tattoos to raise visa funding. Punchy tattoos are now an integral part of Yuyi’s photography, and her sitter (sometimes her model or her own) commented on the influence of consumer culture and social media. Covered with them to do.

of Wear nike 7 (2018), as seen in Yui’s solo exhibition at the Christoph Guy Gallery in Zurich on June 10, the figure is the iconic “Just de It” on her bare chest. It is decorating the slogan of. The Nike logo also appears on her face and neck along with computer icons and pop-up browsers from the 2000s, showing how to build an identity in the post-Internet era through brand affinity.

on the other hand, The Tinder Match 2 (2016), “Match!” Is printed on her cheek, and “NOPE” is printed on the pose of the camera’s forehead. This work shows how social media verification has become a potential source of identity building and self-esteem measures.

Yuyi’s photographs are critical, participating in the way Internet culture shaped ourselves and mutual perceptions. She has exhibited at group shows in New York, Paris, Taipei, etc. and was an artist-in-residence for the Silver Art Project in New York from 2021 to 22.

The work of potter Yasuhisa Koyama is deeply rooted in the history and heritage of crafts in his hometown of Japan. His sometimes organic and sometimes geometric shapes were the subject of a solo exhibition at Officine Safi in Milan earlier this year and are currently on display at a group exhibition at Brown Grotta Art in Wilton, Connecticut.

Focusing on the ancient handmade and wood-burning customs strongly influenced by Jomon, Shigaraki, and Yayoi pottery, the rough and elegant stone tools that are close to the earth are brought to life. He never uses glaze in his work, but when fired at the Anagama Kiln he built, his ship takes on a variety of shades. This is the first type of construction in the region since the Middle Ages.

Koyama studied under the ceramist Hineno Sakuzo as a disciple and taught at the Cleveland Institute of Art and Design. Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Harvard Arts Department. Among other schools.

B. 1988, McAllen, Texas. Lives in Los Angeles.

Carlos Jaramillo’s photographs document the physical and routine work involved in Latin American culture and life. At the 2018 solo exhibition “Beyond Bars” at the W83 gallery in New York, Jaramiro flips the script of images of common Peruvian tourists, portraits and lives inside and outside Lima’s prison, Rurigancho. I recorded it gently.

Due to his current solo exhibition “Tierra del Sol”, or the land of the sun, Jaramiro turned New York’s Mount Serenas into a rodeo. On the wall of the gallery is an image of Jaramillo from the annual charrería “El Clási codelas Américas” in Picoli Viera, California. Charreada is a Mexican rodeo tradition, demonstrating horseback riding, performance, costumes and athletic performance in the early activities of enclosing livestock in the old Mexican Hacienda system. In these photos, Jaramillo humanizes the labor often overlooked in the sports spectacle through the intense, fragmented close-ups of the performer’s body.

Jaramiro has a BFA from the School of Visual Arts and his photographs are widely featured in popular magazines and publications. New York Times, New Yorker, LA TimesWhen Musée Magazine.. He was awarded the Forest Lawn Museum Arts Fellowship in 2022.

B. 1984, Brovary, Ukraine. I live and work in Kyiv.

Janna Kadirova became famous for her practice of transforming familiar building materials such as industrial tiles, glass and stone into striking conceptual sculptures aimed at the history of her hometown of Ukraine’s Soviet Union. .. In her new work in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, Kadirova is currently focusing on the Ukrainian people.

After the invasion, Kadirova left Kieu’s home and headed west to settle in a village near the Hungarian border, where he set up a studio and gallery. There, many large, smooth stones in the river caught the eye of Kadirova. They resembled the simple round wheat bread found throughout Ukraine and gave rise to the idea of ​​his new work, “Palyanitsia”, which means bread in Ukrainian.

Palyanitsia It became a kind of Shibboleth. Difficult-to-pronounce words are used by Ukrainians to distinguish between Russian enemies and Ukrainian comrades. Inspired by symbolism, Kadirova collected the stones and cut them into chunks and slices, leaving the whole thing behind. The finished sculpture will be on display in Venice until June 30th at a special show sharing the series name announced by Galleria Continua at the Biennale. It was previously exhibited at the König Gallery in Berlin. Kadyrova donates 100% of her earnings to a volunteer organization and her associates who stayed in Kieu to join the Defense Forces. Her very simple yet very effective work severely reminds us of the catastrophic loss, movement and destruction of human life.

After graduating from Taras Shevchenko State School of Art in Kyiv, Kadirova has been awarded several international acclaims for her work, including the 2013 Main Pinchuk Art Center Awards. She was featured in the 55th, 56th and 58th editions of the Venice Biennale, including 2019.

Emily Weiner’s paintings are often held in custom-made frames and are rich in symbolism and historical mention. As Weiner stated in her artist’s statement, “My work revives, changes shape, and constitutes recoded icons, geometry, and material motifs over time. Weiner is enthusiastic about exploring a variety of aesthetic means, using the past to create his own contemporary glossary.

of Cassandra (2022), the terracotta frame is adjacent to a painting of an ancient Greek red-figure krater. Mundus Inversus (2022), the maple frame outlines a shimmering moon peeking through a pair of blood-red curtains. These works evoke artists throughout art history, from Euphronios to Georgia O’Keeffe to Jonas Wood, but refuse to be fixed at any time.

Weiner holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Barnard College and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts. She is on display at Le Roy Neiman Gallery at Columbia University. Aimee Friberg Exhibition, and Grizzly Grizzly. Her work was recently included in a group show at the Red Arrow Gallery, including “SHOW UP!”. And “Mundus Inversus”.
