Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to announce Punk Me Tender’s arrival to Dallas for the opening reception of his new exhibition Together, we rise, we love, we share the moon on Friday, September 10th from 6-8pm at Samuel Lynne Galleries at Thompson Dallas at The National and on Saturday, September 11th, from 6-8pm at Samuel Lynne Galleries in the Design District. The artist will be in attendance at both receptions, and the exhibition will be on view through October 2, 2021. 

A Parisian artist who moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams, Punk Me Tender explores themes of beauty, love, and destruction in his work. The butterfly has become an integral part of his artwork and his signature paintings contain brightly colored butterflies covered in diamond dust giving them an ethereal feel. These paintings represent renewal, rebirth and resurrection just as a butterfly transforms, so do these works of art. The Artist strives to create a metamorphic experience for anyone who encounters his works.

In the Artist’s newest series, he invites destruction to be a part of his creation by burning parts of the artwork. This shows the fragility of life by taking what he creates and partly destroying it, showing that beauty can be shattered in the blink of an eye, but sometimes it is this destruction that allows for growth and renewal. 

The Artist is best known for his spin technique, which was influenced and first made famous by Damien Hirst. “The technique I use is itself a transformation: I lay down colors over white butterflies and watch them transform”. This technique introduces an air of unpredictability that rejects conscious thought and defies artistic convention. Punk Me Tender uses bold colors and high-gloss embellishments like diamond dust and glossy acrylic coatings to further distinguish his work. It is these intriguing elements that lure the viewer in for a closer look.

Punk Me Tender isn’t afraid to branch out and play with multiple mediums and employs his spin techniques on things like surfboards, pianos and even a motor bike. Whether it’s graffiti art, murals, or photography, spontaneity is integral to his craft. He never follows a strategy or traditional creative process & has no set rules throughout his journey. What he creates is always authentic, graphic & raw, and never fails to intrigue and captivate the viewer. “Art has no rules, no censor—it’s one of the last freedoms we have,” he says. “Artists need to keep making art to remind people of what freedom looks like. I think that’s the real role of any artist”.
