ARTIVIST Inaugural Exhibition: Spooky Portal
Featuring Dustin Yellin
ARTIVIST invited viewers to be a part of its inaugural exhibition: Dustin Yellin: Spooky Portal. Brooklyn-based artist and cultural philanthropist Dustin Yellin has risen as a leading figure in the global contemporary art scene since opening his first studio 20 years ago.
Spooky Portal is Dustin Yellin’s first Solo Exhibition in Asia. The exhibition featured his major canvas series 'Cave Paintings,' as well as his renowned ongoing sculptures series 'Psychogeographies.'
Spooky Portal offered an opportunity to dive into the intersection between art, time, and nature. There were a myriad of colorful mysteries hidden within Yellin’s paintings and sculptures, and viewers discovered new details and secrets each time they experienced the works.
Known for his innovative approach to art, Dustin Yellin has created a series of paintings that are both visually stunning and thought-provoking. Yellin's art is characterized by its exploration of various themes such as human consciousness, societal structures, and our relationship with the natural world.
Despite their visual complexity, his works often carry a clear and powerful message, reflecting his deep engagement with the world around him. Yellin's unique style is characterized by his commitment to using unconventional materials and techniques. His new series continues this tradition, utilizing a blend of acrylic and collage to create multidimensional paintings that leap off the canvas.
Spooky Portal, from which the exhibition takes its title, is an artwork that is a haunting exploration of the unknown. The enigmatic portal at the center of the piece invites viewers to step into a different realm, sparking curiosity and wonder.
His latest series of works on canvas continues to push the boundaries of artistic expression. Each piece invites viewers on a journey, encouraging them to engage with the narratives presented and to reflect on their own experiences and perceptions. They embody Yellin's ability to merge the real with the imagined, the tangible with the ephemeral, and the personal with the universal.
