JIM D’AMATO

For over a decade now, NYC artist Jim D’Amato has been articulating the subtle variances in design between plant-life, paisley textile designs, reptiles, and deep sea urchins, by merging these elements in expansive paintings, drawings, and silkscreen prints. Each D’Amato work is produced with a menacing, heavy metal color palette and there is a definite omnivorous...

SARAH WALKER

Sarah Walker‘s abstracts stand out for their willingness to go in esoteric directions that most blue-chip artists dare not. Perhaps that is why the artist’s two works—titled Voyager and Outpost (see below)—felt slightly mismatched within the status-quo-ish new group show “The Transportation Business” (at the Jane Lombard Gallery).

CERN ONE

Before street art began party-crashing the blue chip galleries, Cern (aka CernOne, aka Cernesto) was a local tagger of subway cars and brick walls. His meditative, playful murals still grace walls (and a few regular delivery trucks) around Greenpoint and Williamsburg, the latter where Cern has kept a studio since the late ’90s. Those were...
