Lot description
Quik – Titled "Duane & Jaime". 2012. Spray paint, acrylic and Enamel on canvas, Measures 62 x 54 inches. Signed and titled verso.

Exemplifying Quik’s characteristic use of bright colors, strong light/dark contrasts, and text scrawled across the canvas, 'Duane & Jaime' is a perfect display of the artist’s ability to combine main stream culture, pop icons, and graffiti elements into his paintings. Posed looking demurely down from the composition, a voluptuous female is drawn with cartoonish figurations and thick lines, accentuated by the smattering of colors used across the surface.

Growing up in Queens, New York, Lin Felton aka 'Quik' (b. 1958) started tagging around his neighborhood during the 1970’s and by the 1980's he was one of the few New York graffiti artists to be shown in art galleries and museums. Throughout his career, Quik's artistic style has matured to include ironic commentaries on social, political, and personal topics while still maintaining his personality and the spirit of graffiti. Quik has exhibited widely throughout the United States and abroad, with recent solo shows at Green Flowers Art Gallery, Boulogne-Billancourt, France; AAA Gallery, Rotterdam, Netherlands; Avenir Finance, Paris, France; and Galerie Arte Ventuno, Brussels.
