“Anti-Hero” by Jerkface at Taglialatella Galleries

Who’s ready to root for the antihero?

Taglialatella Galleries is pleased to present a new collection of paintings and prints by NY-based artist Jerkface, appropriately entitled Anti-Hero. The provocative muralist has become world-renowned for daring dissections and reimaginations of iconic characters from the cannon of favorite comics and cartoons of our time.

The signature painting style of Jerkface employs geometric abstraction, transparency and repetition, as protagonists and antagonists alike are transmuted into intricately painted motifs on canvas. Facial features are often omitted from the artist’s work to challenge the audience to more closely connect with the subtle emotions elicited by the compositions. Deftly manipulating preconceived notions of form into new and compelling visual narratives, Jerkface’s paintings become sophisticated meditations on color and movement imbued with all the emotion, energy, and unbridled optimism of youth.

Like flipping channels on a Saturday morning, visuals Jerkface creates dance across a canvas like the familiar figures from cartoon reruns. In Anti-Hero, the artist combines an unmistakable style with inspiration from a variety of legendary shows; including the Simpsons, Sesame Street, Family Guy, and Looney Tunes, among others. Just don’t touch that dial.

Anti-Hero will exhibit at Taglialatella Galleries’ flagship location in Chelsea, New York, November 15 through December 13, 2018. A private VIP & Press preview will open on November 15th from 4 to 6 pm, followed by a reception from 6 to 9 pm, featuring live entertainment and refreshments provided by Stella Artois. This event is by invitation only — RSVP is required.
