On the occasion of SPRINT–Independent Publishers and Artists’ Books Salon at Spazio Maiocchi, Milan, KALEIDOSCOPE presents “Paradise,” a solo show by American artist Austin Lee which also celebrates the launch of the artist’s first monograph, co-published with Carl Kostyál and designed by Bureau Borsche.
The show, organised in collaboration with Carl Kostyál, will consist of three paintings inspired by the enigmatic expression of Christ on the Cross (1600–1610) by El Greco
The work of the New York-based artist often explores the duality of technological advancement within reality and surrealism, creating uncanny and humorous figures by merging digital tools with traditional painting and sculpting techniques. Born in Las Vegas in 1983, Austin Lee received his MFA from Yale in 2013 and currently lives and works in New York City. During the past few years, he has presented solo exhibitions at Carl Kostyál, London; Peres Projects, Berlin; Deitch Projects, New York; and Kaikai Kiki, Tokyo.
On Saturday 23 November from 7–9 PM, Austin Lee will be signing copies of the book at Spazio Maiocchi.
