Lot description
“Unlearn” (2000) is an excellent example of the large-scale street art for which Dave Kinsey is best known. This diptych on two wooden doors, depicting a single figure at odds with its surroundings, reflects the artist's characteristic early use of urban figures as a means to explore contemporary life.

Contemporary artist Dave Kinsey (b. 1971) gained fame with his socially and politically charged street art installations. Using a variety of media, Kinsey creates layered, complex works to represent contemporary life and the human condition. After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta and the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Kinsey moved to Los Angeles to work in design and advertising, working for brands such as DC Shoes, where he created the brand's iconic logo. Soon after, he started the design studio BLK/MRKT with fellow artists Shepard Fairey and Phillip DeWolff. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions at the Joshua Liner Gallery, New York, NY; ALICE Gallery, Brussels, BE; and Lazarides Gallery, London, England, among others.
