If you are in New York City, then tonight is your lucky night because Spoke NYC is kicking off a fantastic new art exhibition featuring the work of Austin, Texas artist Tim Doyle. The solo show is called “UnReal Estate V“ and is the fifth installment in Tim’s highly successful series of pop culture themed prints. Here is the official announcement from the gallery.
SPOKE NYC is pleased to welcome back gallery artist Tim Doyle for his fifth solo exhibition, debuting for the very first time in New York City. For this year’s installment of his on-going “UnReal Estate” series, Doyle has tackled all new locations from cinema and television’s most popular cult classics, re-imagining their locales in his signature illustrative style.
Since its conception in 2012, Doyle has tackled a wide range of famous pop culture locales, ranging from the wildly popular and recognizable to the more underground and cult-classic. For this new body of work, Doyle has covered some of his most beloved shows like The Simpsons while exploring new territories like Hayao Miyazaki’s Howls Moving Castle. This is the first installment of his UnReal Estate series that he’s blended television and cinema, which makes for a truly unique display.
Comprised of a total of ten designs, Doyle has created both original pen and ink drawings as well as hand-pulled screen prints (with accompanying variant editions) Starting with hand-drawn illustrations, Doyle then scans and digitally colors in his original illustrations. From there he screen-prints all his editions in-house at his Austin studio, Nakatomi. With immense precision and craftsmanship, Doyle utilizes clever printing techniques such as split fountains and glow in the dark inks to add a special element to each design. A veritable display, “UnReal Estate V” truly showcases the artist’s ranging talents as both an illustrator and screen-printer.
Please join us for “UnReal Estate V” – the debut NYC solo show by Tim Doyle, opening Saturday, May 6th with an evening reception from 6pm – 9pm. The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, May 28th, 2017. As a special treat to attendees, there will be an exclusive limited edition give-away print, only available to the first 50 people at the opening. The artist will be in attendance and complimentary beverages will be served.
