Skyler Grey is known as a twenty-year-old contemporary art anomaly, often referred to as “The Fresh Prince of Street Art.” Grey is the youngest artist ever to be internationally exhibited in high-profile art fairs including SCOPE during Art Basel in Switzerland and Art Wynwood in Miami. In his paintings, Grey mashes images of pop culture icons such as Popeye, Olive Oyl, Mickey Mouse, and Wonder Woman and fuses them with luxury and fashion iconography via the inclusion of logos such as Chanel, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton, allowing the artist to create his own commentary on what he considers Pop today. Inspired by, and often compared to, well-known masters such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Keith Haring, Grey combines bold colors, silk-screened layers, acrylic, spray-paint, and touches of diamond dust to create his own distinctive flair and style.
Grey’s works have been exhibited at art fairs and venues in London, Vancouver, Miami, New York, Los Angeles and Dubai. In 2017, Grey was featured in Forbes’ “30 Under 30, Art and Style Edition.” Earlier in the same year, Grey’s work was added to the permanent collection of the Coral Springs Museum of Art in Florida. In 2018, Grey made his Art Miami art fair debut with Avant Gallery. Grey was also the official artist of the 2018 MLB All Star Game in Washington, DC.
In September of 2019, Grey released his groundbreaking collaboration with Lamborghini as the first artist to ever officially collaborate with the Italian automotive brand. Grey had the unique opportunity to design and paint an Aventador S for production in Lamborghini’s new custom paint shop in Bologna, Italy. This one-of-a-kind Aventador S, described by Forbes as “the first street-legal work of art on four wheels,” was purchased by a private art collector immediately upon its release.
In 2020, Grey’s work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida and at the University of Michigan Museum of Art in Ann Arbor.
