Last month, Juxtapoz Projects welcomed artists Kendra Yee and Ruohan Wang to the new residency program at Superchief NYC. On July 3rd, we opened our doors to show local friends and fans what the artists had been up to for the June 2019 program. In addition, we unveiled the collaborative mural that both artists worked on, generously sponsored by our friends at Liquitex.
Juxtapoz Projects artist Kendra Yee, originally from Toronto, CA worked on a series of ceramics and vases, translating her ideas from pen and ink drawings into fired clay. Berlin based Ruohan Wang spent the residency working on larger canvas works with airbrush, creating a contemporary diptych with two soldier-esque figures atop a horse. The two worked side by side, exchanging ideas, socializing in Brooklyns vibrant art scene and experimenting in their respective practices and the styles. The result was an impressive display of creative dedication and artistic confluence.
