Ari Lankin's Details
About Ari Lankin
Lankin is a Manhattan based artist who explores the spirit of our times, and timeless ideas connected to the human condition. He is known for painting in the studio, on location, at live events, essentially everywhere he goes. In addition to his master expressionist abstraction he develops conceptual abstraction linked to emotions, nature, and technology. Lankin collaborates in a wide variety of projects including: design, apparel, film, performance, curation, and street art.
The maxim, “Everything is Connected” is central to Lankin’s image making. The plastic, the ephemeral, and everything in between are intertwined in his work. Memory and active perception are in flux as first impressions dissolve and new revelations emerge. Lankin creates energetic images where the viewer is free to assign meaning and revel in sensation. His paintings are windows of self-reflection and residue of performance.
