Vertical Gallery is proud to present “ICONS”, a 3-artist exhibition featuring RYCA, Brad Novak and Chris Cunningham. The exhibition will run from November 5 –26, 2016 with an opening reception Saturday, November 5, 6-10pm.

All three international artists are known for their signature pop-contemporary art styles, each using iconic figures in their work. For the past decade, Ryan Callanan (UK), aka RYCA, has worked tirelessly as an artist and printmaker. His use of pop iconography has garnered wide appeal, with many noted collectors and celebrity owners. Brad Novak (NZ) is an urban artist whose work sits sharply at the nexus between fine art and street art. His one-of-a-kind, hand-collaged and stencil-spray-painted works involve the layering of popular imagery, specifically the depiction of celebrities from the hyper-inflated world of American stardom. Chris Cunningham (UK) works exclusively with spray-paint and contemporary stencil techniques. References to pop culture, graffiti, skateboard graphics and comic book iconography feature heavily alongside the instantly recognizable pop culture icons, logos and the symbols of our time, exploring the effect they have on our society.
