There is particular sense of aesthetics within a body of artwork which has been created from found material. Such methodological approach to the creative process enables a street artist to incorporate the urban context into the art pieces when he or she is not creating in the public space. This kind artwork will be on show during the days to come, at FFDG gallery in San Francisco. An exciting exhibition by John Felix Arnold III will take us on a journey through a post-apocalyptic narrative created by the artist…

This is John Felix Arnold III…

Born in Durham, North Carolina, John Felix Arnold III currently lives and works in Oakland. His educational background involves degrees in Communication Design, as well as printmaking (from the San Francisco Art Institute). Arnold has exhibited in various cultural institutions in the United state, such as the Shooting Gallery, SFMoMA Artists’ Gallery, the Luggage Store Gallery, Superchief, ArtNowNY and Queens Nails Projects. At the Shooting Gallery, he was a part of a group show An Even Eleven, which celebrated the 11th anniversary of the San Francisco based gallery. Arnold is also a part of an ongoing group show called Champagne Tigers, which gives tribute to the hip-hop crew The Wu-Tang Clan. Earlier this year, John Felix Arnold III had a successful solo exhibition at the Shooting Gallery. The show represented a narrative built by the artist, depicting a world of tomorrow where humans are no longer the dominant species (read more about this interesting story in our article Pilgrimage).

John Felix Arnold III has continued with his devotion to explore the possible consequences of man’s never-ending desire for technological progress. Resonating the postmodern state of dread, the artist’s creative process is submerged in this theme through form and content. His assemblages are created from the pieces which the artist has recovered from the street and transformed by Arnold’s ability to create a dynamic tension between elements. This body of work builds on the artist’s recent exhibitions, featuring onomatopoeic flashes, layered stains and chaotic figures. The exhibition titled No Destination is scheduled to be on show at FFDG gallery from October 3rd to November 1st 2014. It will include an inspiring set of paintings, fabricated found wood assemblages, works on paper, as well as small sculptural works. Do not miss the opportunity to take a glimpse into the dystopian parallel universe…
