Although 2020 has been challenging for many working in the arts, Maddox Gallery has had the privilege to work with some incredible new artists this year. From emerging artists to established talents, we break down everything you need to know about the five artists that joined the Maddox family in 2020.
This year Maddox Gallery has had the pleasure of welcoming the Miaz Brothers into the Maddox family. The two brothers, Roberto and Renato, were born in Milan in 1965 and 1968 respectively. Their works explore ideas of perception, rendering blurred depictions of everyday objects and portraits. According to the brothers, their work ‘provide[s] a visual experience, that activates our awareness, that compels the viewer to recognise and re-establish the limits of his or her own perception.’ Having taken residence in our Shepherd Market Gallery this year, 2021 promises big things for the Italian duo, with Maddox Gallery hosting an exclusive exhibition of their work early next year.
In 2020, we saw Maddox Gallery extend its global reach with the introduction of Justin Bower to our Los Angeles gallery. His futuristic paintings explore the intersection between humanity and technology, exploring how we define ourselves in a post-human society. In 2021, his innovative portraits will have their own exhibition in our Los Angeles gallery, in West Hollywood’s fashionable design district.
This year Maddox Gallery was thrilled to announce worldwide representation of New York based contemporary artist, Jerkface. Signing exclusively with Maddox Gallery, Jerkface is famed for his playful re-imaginations of iconic cartoon characters. Maddox Gallery CEO, John Russo, describes the artist as ‘both incredibly talented and amazingly popular,’ noting that the gallery feels extremely proud to be representing the gifted muralist. With an exciting exhibition due to take place in the Maddox Gallery’s flagship location on Maddox St. next May, Jerkface’s sell-out print release on the 28th November proves that his popularity is only on the up.
