New York, NY (Oct 12th, 2022) – For immediate release:
Taglialatella Galleries x Stikki Peaches needs you to Embrace the Chaos.
Since his 2008 debut on the streets of Montreal, the anonymous artist Stikki Peaches has papered cities across the world with his bold, in-your-face style of mixed-media artwork. Rooted in the spirit of reusing and recycling, Stikki is known for a myriad of techniques combining to reveal what he considers “beautifully controlled chaos.” The artist’s vibrant compositions feature the influential figures of the artist’s childhood, including mythical characters, political leaders and cultural icons.
With Embrace the Chaos, Stikki Peaches has created a massive body of work, including original works on canvas and paper, as well as re-worked paintings on found objects such as traditional religious portraiture that the artist retrieved from old Italian markets during his travels. Marking a decade since his first solo show in New York City, Stikki has spent the better part of a year reflecting on the nature of what it means to speak visually to an audience with an unprecedented yet ubiquitous shared experience. His statement:
It has been a complicated few years. Seems like days take much more planning and organizing. If it is not one thing, it is another. Life comes at you quickly. Filled with ups and downs, we control what we can and right now, you’ve chosen to be here to see this exhibition.
As chaotic as the bathrooms of the CBGB, embrace the chaos in front of you. Take this time for yourself and dive into these works, unraveling layers of messages through these vessels of portraits.
Embrace the Chaos has also lent Stikki Peaches a unique opportunity to collaborate from afar with two creators influential to the artist’s love of film, fashion, dance, theatre, and artistic exploration. Photographer Melika Dez and painter/actress Kathrine Narducci have each created on a body of work with Stikki, separately, by producing daring collaborative compositions without planned direction in each artist’s signature style, combined with that of Stikki Peaches.
We invite you to the opening reception of Embrace the Chaos at Taglialatella Galleries on October 20th, from 6 - 9pmat 229 10th Ave., New York, NY. For additional information or to RSVP, please contact Taglialatella Galleries at +1 (212) 367-0881 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
