Vertical Gallery presents a special five-artist exhibition for their first exhibition of 2020. The Winter Group Show will feature Leon Keer, Martin Whatson, Julieta XLF, Li-Hill, and James Knight (Fourhundred ML). The exhibition runs February 1 – 22, 2020 with an opening reception on Saturday, February 1st, 6:00-9:00pm.

Leon Keer (Utrecht, Netherlands) is a Dutch pop-surrealist artist. He is a leading artist in anamorphic street art. He has created work on canvas and (3D) artwork on the streets in Europe, the United States, Russia, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Australia, New Zealand, and several Asian countries.

Martin Whatson (Oslo, Norway) is a Norwegian street artist best known for his calligraphic scribbles in grayscale voids. Over the past decade, Martin has developed an unmistakable aesthetic combining abstract movement with figurative stenciled compositions. His works can be seen to mirror the rise and fall of the streets, as he symbolically recreates the urban environment, then vandalizes it to reveal his vibrant transformations.

Julieta XLF (Valencia, Spain) paints whimsical figures, often entwined with nature, that seem larger than life. Since 2004, she has been focusing on mural interventions in public spaces. She has a degree in Fine Arts and a Master's degree in illustration from the Faculty of San Carlos, Polytechnic University of Valencia. Julieta will be attending the opening reception on February 1st!

Li-Hill (Toronto, Canada) employs painting, illustration, stenciling, and sculptural elements within his works. With a background in graffiti and mural painting and a degree in Fine Arts, his works range from smaller multiples to enormous murals that explore industrialization, scientific breakthrough, man versus nature and information saturation.

James Knight (Fourhundred ML) (Vancouver, Canada) began in the graffiti art scene, and has continued to define his style to what he calls ‘rough realism’ – hyper-detailed photorealistic paintings created with spray paint. The moniker he’s adopted as an artist, Fourhundred ML, refers to the aerosol cans that are his primary tool.

This five-artist exhibition allows each artist to create a full collection of work to show a range styles.
