"I paint celebrations of life, capturing what I enjoy on paper or canvas so that it can be shared and live on. The technique I continuously develop brings life back to the field of painting through intense personal investment and direct stimulation of the imagination of the viewer."

James is an illustrator with an interest in story and whimsical fantasy. Elements from an eccentric and eclectic range of interests combine in his work to create intricately familiar mysteries that appeal for varied, personal reasons. Vast tableaux that are simultaneously inviting and unfathomable are sure to be present in the bright and cheerful works which also house a subtle, melancholy seriousness. You are encouraged to use the elements in these works as a jumping off point for your own imaginations.
James is currently hard at work on his first picture book to be published with Penguin Randomhouse in the spring of 2019.
Joseph is a visual artist born and raised in New York City. Working in a style he coined “Vandal Expressionism”, his particular brand of post-graffiti abstraction draws heavily from AbEx, art brut, surrealism, cave painting and pop art, invoking primal elements of graffiti and the iconography of damage and intrusion from street art to turn the calligraphic scribbles of the street into a medium for artistic divination. Unencumbered by distinctions between the abstract and the figurative, his work delves into the impulses of the subconscious, transcribing them spontaneously onto canvas, paper and wall in an otherworldly yet distinctly urban visual language.
Over the last decade Ari Lankin has extensively developed painted languages exploring abstraction, concepts, and realism. His current paintings are intentionally open to interpretation and rich in visual sensation. They hover on a slippery line between mystical and scientific. Paint handling, invention, and exploration of the picture plane are crucial aspects of his search.
His interest in material, process, and creative consulting have led him to collaborations with Adidas, MTV x Trojan, Burt’s Bees, Red Bull, and Tino Sehgal during his solo show at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Using his unique skill set and experience he has created commissioned paintings, one-of-a-kind programming, and custom tailored consulting with an emphasis on branding.
Lankin was recently profiled in a mini documentary of his painting process by MTV. He has been featured by Forbes, Vice Creator's Project, Studio Visit Magazine, and newspapers around the world. His recent painting solo show in New York City, a collection of large-scale abstractions, completely sold out.
He worked at the Guggenheim for over seven years as an educator spending countless hours engaged with art objects and patrons. He had thousands of conversations with complete strangers about works of art. He credits that time to truly learning the universal magic of art. His interest in other artists and art history is passionate. Education and curation are important aspects of his practice
Lankin lives in Manhattan where he has had his studio for the past twelve years.
