Oliver Vernon

In: Featured Artists

4 Nov 2008

Brooklyn based artist Oliver Vernon’s work is emerging in galleries coast to coast. His work, rooted in a mix of graf culture and abstract painting history, is profoundly influenced by psychedelic consciousness expansion, the yogic and meditative wisdom paths of the East, and underground electronic music culture.

Since graduating from Parsons School of Design, he has executed numerous mural projects in New York, around the US and abroad. His “live painting performances” began with Giant Step parties in ’99, and have taken him on to stages of all kinds from booming warehouses to intimate jazz-poetry clubs to Times Sq.. Now, with a solid exhibition lineup stretching through 2007, he is focusing all efforts into the studio, where his intensely layered and detailed paintings have to time to ripen through time.

With his arsenal of techniques and ever-expanding vocabulary of unique abstract forms, Vernon weaves a web of inter-dimensional play designed to unlock symbolic realms within the beholder.
