Following up on his show there in 2018 (covered), Todd “REAS” James recently opened another solo at Eighteen Gallery in Copenhagen entitled Warm Welcome. Continuing to work on interior spaces in his signature cartoonish style, the NYC-based artist has inserted iconography of a certain era of youth in some of the new paintings – posters and record sleeves of artists like RUN DMC, Iron Maiden, De La Soul, Slayer, Wu Tang, B-52s and such luminaries of that time. James has also created some pieces in black and white, a contrast that is especially striking in the paintings that he combines this technique with his more recent vibrant colorful style.
