Here at White Court Art we try to offer art that suits a wide range of tastes. We are pleased to say that we are now working with American artist AgentX. It's hard to assign a style to this multi-faceted talent as is obvious when reviewing his work.
AgentX is a cultural explorer & commentator who creates experimental muti-media collages, paintings & 2D artworks. Described as "Pop Art with thought" he juxtaposes pop culture, technology, fashion, music, politics and race in visually complex amalgums expressing the anxieties of the global, post-modern world and the dark side of consumerist, media-obssessed culture. His work occupies a unique intersection between the aesthetics and philosophy of Futurism, the social critique of the Dada movement and contemporary artistic movements ranging in scope from Pop Art to Superflat.
Brought up in Connecticut he studied in New Haven & Atlanta before moving to Canada & training at the Art Institute of Vancouver. While his work draws from this formal training AgentX's mash-up multi-media style is primarily self-developed. He often combines the ephemera of the past with the glossy world of contemporary magazines & newspapers, adding paint & other mixed media to create images that cleverly critique humanity's current obsessions and where they may lead us. Presenting a contemporary, urban veneer in his work, closer examination reveals sub-layers diving into loaded socio-political subject matter allowing the viewer to derive pleasure on a multitude of levels.
AgentX jumped onto the art radar in 2011 when named as a semi-finalist in the New York Art Marathon. International acclaim & multiple honours rapidly followed including winning Top Entry in the competitive Art-Pie Show in London and also being named as being among "12 Artists to Invest in Now". Currently based in Vancouver AgentX has exhibited in many renowned centres of art including London. New York, San Francisco, Spain & Toronto. He is currently a featured artist working with Microsoft for the Surface 3 Tablet Campaign.
Viewing his work you will see why we are excited to be working with this international,multi-faceted talent.
