I'm excited to participate in the upcoming "THE ART OF THE GAME," show in Chicago this September! As a kid, I would spend hours in my room drawing the Chicago Bulls logo over and over. I loved the shape, and how seeing the number 23 and the Bulls made me feel like anything was possible. I loved the team's vibe and hoped we could have a vibe like that in Toronto one day.

All-Star Press and the Chicago Bulls are excited to present "THE ART OF THE GAME," a fully immersive visual art exhibition exploring the iconic history and deep-rooted presence of The Chicago Bulls. This officially licensed, one-of-a-kind event memorializes the prolific team's successes and history within the context of art and visual culture. "THE ART OF THE GAME" features Kayla Mahaffey, Langston Allston, me and a curated lineup of artists whose work embodies distinctive experiences, memories, and connections to the Chicago Bulls to capture the unique story of the team's legacy. 

A central element of the show is its focus on giving back; a portion of the proceeds made from the event will go to Chicago Bulls Charities, which focuses its efforts on four areas: education, community investment, health and wellness, and youth opportunity. 

The show will be held at the United Center, 1901 W Madison St, Chicago, IL, on September 3rd, 2022 and will feature an entirely new body of work from a list of artists. All artists bring their interpretation of the Chicago Bulls in mediums ranging from original paintings to sculpture to digital designs and limited edition prints.

PXP Contemporary X Showfields

PXP Contemporary X Showfields

I'm featured in a new show with Showfields NY. The exhibition is curated by Alicia Puig, Co-founder of PXP Contemporary. Showfields has had past hosts such as Maria Brito, Larry Ossei Mensah and others.

Here's more about the inspiration behind this curation:

"After spending most of 2020 indoors within the confines of our homes, we feel a collective longing for both nature and connection. These are two themes that are inherently a part of the artists' works that I've selected for this curation. Some present the human form immersed in a landscape or other natural environment, while others compose images with figures alongside animals, flowers, and insects. Working in the mediums of collage and painting, these artists remind us to appreciate the profound beauty of our surroundings and of the importance of having respect for it now and in the years to come.

These works also act as documentation of life as an artist during the pandemic. While they, like everyone else, experienced loss, grief, anxiety, frustration, and fear - like nature itself, they also went through periods of growth and renewal. For me, bringing together this collection of artists is a manifestation of the belief that 2021 will indeed allow for more opportunities to connect with the environment, ourselves, and each other. It's a sigh of relief, or rather, a breath of fresh air." - Alicia Puig
