Beau’s Mechanical Shark Week at Amy LI Projects

Do you like sharks? I sure do. Amy Li Projects is currently hosting a solo exhibition with a fun shark theme: Mechanical Shark Week, featuring all new paintings by one of NYCs most popular Street Artists/ Taggers, Beau. Shark Week!

I didn’t write down all of the official names of the paintings, so I just made up names that I think describe what is happening in the picture, and then I captioned each photo accordingly, so please enjoy that.

Beau’s paintings in this series include many references to other modern and contemporary pop artists, such as Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Keith Haring and Claes Oldenburg. Beau (who in person, strongly resembles actor James Franco) admits that he enjoys working “in variable styles and mediums,” so of course the influences are going to creep in there. And for that, we say, Good On Ya!

Beau says that having dexterity with a broad range of genres allows him to render styles most fitting for any environment. “A lot of my work grows out of necessity,” he reveals. “Usually a client steers me towards something they feel, or that strikes them.”

He continues, “I hold myself to a standard approach that an artist must practice in multiple mediums to encourage a rich growth in perception and technique, and in a classically trained manner.” He also just likes to just ‘let the spirit move him,’ as they say, while “trying to find new ways to break the rules that have already been broken many times over.” You Go, Beau.

“I also like the challenge of completing paintings and or projects of any media within my reach,” he concludes.

As you can see, these are all pretty darn great, and the price point is around $300 – $500, so Beau’s work is very affordable for anyone who wants to build their collection with quality pieces from a very up and coming young artist.

Beau’s Mechanical Shark Week will be on Exhibit Through June 3rd, 2015 at Amy Li Projects, Located at 166 Mott Street in Chinatown, NYC.
