To coincide with this years Art Basel Miami Beach, San Francisco-based Baer Ridgway Exhibitions will be showing a new body of work from enigmatic contemporary artist Matthew Palladino during the New Art Dealers Alliances (NADA) Art Fair. Earlier this year, Palladino made waves with his groundbreaking sold-out solo exhibition, Wonder Box (covered), which showcased the artist’s wonderfully warped visual language executed with near surgeon-like technical precision.
With an aesthetic that loosely pays homage to the Bay Area’s Mission School movement, yet in a decidedly more exotic and colorful manner, Palladino seamlessly blends folk, comic and pop cultural references with a masterful touch and the stylistic agility of a chameleon. A collection of new medium and large scale works on paper further reinforce the bi-coastal artist’s deft hand and ultra-unique compositions, producing twisted imagery that challenges the eye and the mind with their flat dimensionality and obscure wit. A true talent with a immensely bright future, so be sure to experience his enticing eye candy in person while you can.
