“A Conversation with visual artist Aaron Li-Hill” will be the next installment of the FRESCO Talk series. The project aims to bring artist, galleries, museum professionals, scholars, and collectors together and share their insights with the millennial generation.
FRESCO Foundation invites Aaron Li-Hill, a Canadian visual artist based in Brooklyn, to discuss his journey as mixed media and street artist and to address certain issues within the urban art scene. With a background in graffiti and mural painting, Li-Hill seamlessly blends elements from painting, illustration, stenciling, and sculpture. Through immersive installations, smaller multiples, and large-scale murals, he explores industrialization, scientific breakthrough, man versus nature and information saturation. He possesses a BFA from OCADU and has worked and shown in cities such as Melbourne, New York, San Francisco, LA, Berlin, and Hong Kong.
Li-Hill will explore with us his works and processes, presenting certain pieces and aspects of his practice through image and film. He will also be addressing certain topics within the urban art scene, followed by a conversation to expand upon these insights. A short Q&A with the artist will be held after the discussion.
The conversation will be held at FRESCO Foundation’s Soho location.
A reception will follow after the talk with drinks and snacks.
Date: December 15, 2018.
Location: 45 Renwick Street, New York, NY, 10013
Aaron Li-Hill is a Canadian visual artist based in Brooklyn, who employs painting, illustration, stenciling, and sculptural elements within his works. With a background in graffiti and mural painting and a degree in Fine Arts, his works range from smaller multiples to enormous murals that explore industrialization, scientific breakthrough, man versus nature and information saturation. Li-Hill possesses a BFA from OCADU and has worked and shown in cities such as Melbourne, New York,
San Francisco, LA, Berlin and Hong Kong. He has also had works displayed in major institutions such as the National Gallery of Victoria, The Art Gallery of Ontario, the Portsmouth Museum of Art in New Hampshire and the Honolulu Museum of Art.
Aaron Li-Hill’s work attempts to decipher the complexities of the rapid development in our modern age. Through the western gaze Li-Hill points to the devastating effects of capitalist culture on the individual psyche, his work serves as a template for the ramifications felt on a global scale. The work mirrors the perception of the westerner attempting to comprehend, disentangle and redress. Born out of suppression, it becomes a manifestation portraying the skewed image of the imprint our culture has globally. To create these complex images, Li-Hill blurs the lines between graffiti, graphic design, painting and drawing to disrupt the concepts of what is considered high and lowbrow art. Through the storm of imagery and density there is also a beauty that surfaces from this fragile balance.
