Derek Gores ‘Live Studio’ @ Moniker Art Fair

I’m sure that anyone that is part of the new contemporary art movement has heard of artist Derek Gores by now! His collages are unmistakable, with his signature style influenced by city living and beautiful, raw, classic women and ‘abstract design aesthetics of fashion’.

Moniker Art Fair has earned a reputation as one of the most exciting contemporary fairs with its roots embedded in urban culture, a place where Derek’s work sits comfortably, the perfect venue to showcase his ‘Live Studio’ exhibit in Brooklyn. This will be an incredible opportunity to view Derek at work as he creates a ‘live’ collage piece. He will also release three new limited edition prints!

About Author

Kylie Dexter was born (and is currently living with her gorgeous boys, Rob and Zen)  in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by Pop Surrealism and the New Contemporary Art movement  she began collecting original works and sculptures in the mid 90's. Since then her collection has grown to epic proportions. She has had an obsession with art from a young age and has an eye for emerging artists, and a deep understanding of the narrative the artist is trying to portray. She believes art can change the way people think and reach the deepest part of their psyches. Kylie has faith in art's ability to create an energy to express and reflect the  deep symbolism and stories that are untouchable in normal reality. She also has a  heartfelt connection to music and is a self-taught artist who brings needle felting to life via her dolls that are sold and shown around the world. With an enthusiastic addiction for writing about art, talking about art, looking at art and making art, what better place to be, surrounded by what you love! I feel passionate that Beautiful Bizarre Magazine raises the profile of up and coming artists, supports those already in the industry and contributes positively to galleries who share a common goal; to keep art alive and flowing, to keep people creating and more importantly keep people collecting and expressing themselves via the images on their walls. .
