Styles & Storytellers is the first installment of a series of exhibits and artist talks created by artist J.T. Liss. 4 unique artists, 4 unique styles, 4 completely different stories about their lives and work. Featuring Marthalicia Matarrita (muralist, painter), Jeff Henriquez (Photorealist painter & muralist), Misha Tyutyunik (muralist, painter) & J.T. Liss (Photographic Artist), “Styles & Storytellers” focuses on the power that storytelling in art can have in changing our worldviews. Each artist is intentional in their work and in the message they want to convey. In this exhibit you will not hear any artist respond with “What do you think this piece is about?” In “Styles & Storytellers” you will be drawn in by the beauty of the work and sparked by a conversation that may change the way you see the world. For if a new thought can enter the mind, even for the briefest of moments, then change has a chance. Come join us and be part the conversation.

“Styles & Storytellers: Volume 1”
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 11th 6-9pm

Exhibit through June 30, 2017
Location: La Maison d’Art (259 West 132nd Street, Harlem)

Featured Artists

J.T. Lis (@JTLissPhotoArt)

Jeff Henriquez (@jartista)

As a portrait artist of the mundane, I get my inspiration from the pedestrian icons you see every day walking around Brooklyn, Chinatown, Bronx or the lower east side of Manhattan, but which are often ignored by most people. Mail boxes, abandoned call boxes, and old pay phones are some of my favorites. I find the beauty in the “vandalism“, and bring these objects into focus to slow down time and make the viewer stop and exist quietly in the chaos of the marks left on them.

+++++++++++++++
Born in 1987 in Martinique, May Clémenté is an emerging artist favoring two different mediums alternatively, reflecting either her need for cheerful acrylic colors in an abstract style, or her quiet, more subdued mood for softness and veiled mystery with the delicate palette of the coffee-painting medium.
A self-taught artist, she exhibited in her native island, then in New York during work-related events and one solo exhibition. 
She explores the exhilarating freedom of working on large canvasses where shapes and vivid colors emerge from a deep quest for her inner soul.
