A talented artist is having her large-scale illustrations displayed in NYC. A little after month from the opening I’m still excited to see Nina Chanel Abney launch her exhibition for the first time ever in NYC. I have been following her for quite some time and it’s always motivational to see someone like her succeed being that we are both minorities. Her striking illustrations have gained her fame across the artistic world and if you like art that challenges your point of view, this exhibition is a must go to.

This Chicago-born artist has been doing life-size illustration in a very peculiar way for quite some time already. Known mainly for her signature minimally styled figures, her work gives a bold statement that raises social consciousness. Her large-scale monotype prints being showcased in Pace Gallery are a combination of symbols and bright colors. Illustrated in a minimal flat style her art is composed in a collage-like manner.

The use of negative flatforms gives her art a unique distinctive style. Nina’s illustration especially the ones being displayed in pace gallery deal with current events and social issues.

Some of the topic touched are housing discrimination, racist rhetoric politics, and today’s administration. All these serious topics are translated into a canvas with a fun feel to it.
