AIKO’s Monster Hit

aiko-4

Love Monster, Aiko‘s new solo exhibit with Joshua Liner Gallery is nothing short of a stand out hit in the otherwise far too saturated and grossly speculated environment of street art. The show is primarily comprised of several ambitious large scale mixed media works on canvas that serve as metaphorical self portraits for the artist, which contemplate gender, cultural, and artistic identity. In My Fortune Cookie Says the Secret to Success is to Go Your Own Way, a voluptuous woman strips along the edge of a boat, spray can in hand, revealing herself to the New York skyline. The watchful eye of the city, disguised here as a playful panda, stands close by, while law enforcement reward posters collage the background. With Love Monster, it is abundantly clear that Lady Aiko has moved beyond her roots as a founding member of the FAILE collective, establishing an identity and presence uniquely her own. – Read on for our extensive photo recap and click images for larger views.
