MAKASIINI CONTEMPORARY is pleased to present new works by the Los Angeles -based artist Jonni Cheatwood at TAIPEI DANGDAI!
SEE YOU AT BOOTH DG01!
In 2020, the Brazilian-American artist Jonni Cheatwood departed from his graffiti-inspired abstractions and turned to figuration, reflecting on the socio-political realities of the moment in tableaux of interiors—both domestic and psychological. In keeping with earlier bodies of work, Cheatwood creates custom, richly patterned surfaces comprising stitched-together scraps of canvas and other found materials, including denim, mesh, burlap sacks, t-shirts, and blankets. He often applies color directly from the tube or pastel stick, unmixed, working on several canvases at once. He describes his figures with a graphic, declarative line, often using a single color, red or black, to outline a shoulder, a jawline, or an afro.
