ATI MAIER

If you were passing through Times Square last night and saw a strange humanoid wearing a space suit and white orb helmet, riding a live horse (with similar helmet), do not be alarmed. The creature behind that cloak was none other than Ati Maier, a Brooklyn-based artist who has been shooting her newest video over the last...

WARREN PARKER

Warren Parker‘s work is deceptively modern. He makes watercolors of ballet dancers, bullfighters, and women of the night, lounging in opulent bedrooms. There is a 19th century vibe to all of it, including Parker’s own self-portraits. And yet, these traditional entertainers, in their spectator-like arenas (the stage, the brothel), strike poses that are rife with identity...

ERIK PARKER

NYC’s Erik Parker is a master stylist. In recent years, the artist’s work has become blue chip: his prints now sell through Pace Gallery, one of the biggies in New York and on the international scene. Yet part of Parker’s crossover appeal is the way he marries outsider styles (graffiti, illustration, art brut) with traditional fine art...
