Marcos Anziani’s “Storytelling” Opens at Avant Gallery
On February 10th, 2022, Avant Gallery New York City at Hudson Yards will present Marcos Anziani’s first major exhibition “Storytelling”. His work will also appear across Avant’s several locations, making this emerging voice’s striking paintings viewable in an innovative macro-exhibition
Born in the Dominican Republic in 1984, Anziani was raised in the Bronx. He now lives and works in Connecticut, producing large format paintings that blend the verve of street art with the tradition of abstract expressionism.
His chaotic forms are balanced by his control of color, with images emerging out of the bold acrylic strokes on the surface of the canvas.
In “Storytelling”, Anziani presents a personal narrative in his trademark style. The pieces interrogate the stories we tell ourselves about our own lives, as well as the lives of others. Through a mixture of introspection and observation, he evokes the world as it feels to us. Like all great storytellers, his pieces give us a new way to see ourselves and each other. It is deeply human and evocative, diving into the particularity of the artist’s experience and returning with work that speaks to the universal.
Paintings on display include:
A preview of these and other works can be seen on Avant Gallery’s website here.
Avant is proud to present this emerging artist, who signed to exclusive representation with the gallery earlier this year. While Anziani has appeared in multiple solo and group exhibitions around the world — appearing in Moscow, New York City and Miami — Storytelling will be his first major show.
