Mixed media artist Kendrick Daye living in the Bronx, NY and hailing from Miami, he loves bright colors, not only that but he loves taking today’s pop culture icons and putting his own twist on their images. Originally schooled in Atlanta, GA at Morehouse College – getting her BA in English and not even art, he has transformed into something of a mixed media collage savant. His work has been featured all over the world since 2009 from Australia, London and New Zealand to San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York – most of his exhibitions take place in New York and Georgia though. He trys to convey and connect with the world and the one individual alike, because he is his work, “..and as with any masterpiece, that connection lives in the unconventional void.”, he says. “Where authenticity cannot be barred by limitation, and catharsis cannot be marred by sterile sanity. I live in my work – it is in that shared space where I feel, and it is in that shared experience where life is present.”
As an artist he blends the most abstractly familiar elements of life – love, envy, wealth, wrath, perception, desire, greed, necessity, lust, identity, indulgence, ideals, ego, morals, said bankruptcy, and fears – with the rawest veneer of famous faces. His pieces are pastiches – whole in and of themselves but even more so in context of one another. Pop & Politics are alive and well contented bed fellows in this world. The personal space stands as the preeminent public place of judgment. The entire world coalesces into a kaleidoscopic cultural landscape, and this is where his work thrives and derives its influence and then projects it into the world for us to experience.
