Eric Inkala - Pop-Up Exhibition 2014
Eric Incala flyer_final_800.jpg

Scandic Front Hotel er vært for Gallery Poulsens kommende pop-up udstilling. Hotellet er valgt som venue for Eric Inkalas solo-udstilling, da hoteller er et dynamisk rum, fyldt med alverdens nationaliteter og fungerer således som et multikulturelt mødested i byer verden over.
Graffitikunsten er uformel og vi mener derfor, at et hotel med dets mangfoldighed af mennesker og kulturer er det perfekte sted at præsentere Eric Inkalas univers. Samtidig er denne kombination en unik mulighed for at opleve kunsten installeret i uhøjtidelige og levende rammer.

Eric Inkala, der er autodidakt, bor og arbejder som de fleste af Gallery Poulsens kunstnere i Brooklyn, New York. Han er født i 1982 i Minneapolis, Minnesota og det er her, hans kunstneriske karriere tager sit udspring.
Som helt ung teenager var han ekstremt fascineret af skateboard og graffiti kulturen. Det førte til et temmelig anderledes teenageliv. I stedet for et normalt ungdomsliv med fodbold og badminton, blev han hurtigt en del af den “Hardcore” graffitiscene og tilbragte stort set samtlige aftener og nætter i teenageårene, med at spraymale på husmure og togvogne rundt om i Minneapolis. Dette skabte ham et navn og gjorde ham respekteret i undergrundsmiljøet omkring graffitien. Hans erfaringer udviklede sig sidenhen i en mere klassisk kunstnerisk retning og han begyndte derfor, at eksperimentere med fotografi, tegning og maleri.
Igennem fotografiet har han dokumenteret hans opvækst og det at være en del, af en vild teenagekultur med sene nattefester og graffitien som den tro følgesvend. Den fortæller imidlertid også, hvordan dette bragte ham på adskillige ture til New York, hvor han blev introduceret til kunst og kultur scenen i the Big Aple. Betagelsen af New York har aldrig sluppet sit tag i Eric Inkala, så han valgte i 2009, at tage springet og flytte til byen, hvor han i dag bor og arbejder.
Det er alt dette og mere til du kan opleve i Inkalas værker, om det så er traditionelle malerier, skulpturer, tegninger eller en bestilt udsmykning på et specifikt sted. Hans malerier har, på samme måde som hans fotografi, udviklet en æstetisk fortælling om hans liv, tanker og følelser. Hans signatur-figur karakteriseres ved form, bevægelse og farver, som at blive kørt rundt i underbevidstheden i et nærmest hysterisk farvemekka.
Denne røde tråd i Inkalas maleri, er yderst genkendelig i hans værker for øjeblikket. Figuren væver sig ind og ud af maleriet, som det altoverskyggende, som en detalje eller som mangedoblinger, der går igen og igen i maleriet. Altid udført med en særdeles sikker og stilren pensel!!

For nylig har Inkala deltaget i diverse gruppeudstillinger rundt om i New York City, Los Angeles og New Jersey. Senest har han afsluttet et af sine stedspecifikke malerier på The Ace Hotel i New York.

Gallery Poulsen fik øjnene op for Eric Inkala sidste år, da en anden af vore amerikanske kunstnere, Isaac Arvold havde inviteret ham til at deltage i vores 10 års jubilæumsudstilling, der løb af stablen i november. I den forbindelse skal det derfor nævnes, at der i den kommende udstilling vil være 5 fællesværker af netop Isaac Arvold og Eric Inkala.

Udstillingen omfatter 21 nye malerier plus de 5 fællesværker, der alle er skabt indenfor de seneste 18 måneder. Eric Inkala vil selv være til stede på ferniseringen, så du har en enestående mulighed for at møde og få en snak om graffiti og undergrundskunstscenen i New York og USA.

Scandic Front hotel will be hosting Gallery Poulsens upcoming pop-up exhibition. The hotel has been chosen as venue for Eric Inkakas solo exhibition because hotels are dynamic spaces filled with nationalities from all over the world and function as a multicultural meeting-place in cities around the world.
Graffiti art is informal and that is why we believe that a hotel with its diversity of people and cultures is the perfect place to present Eric Inlalas universe. At the same time its an unique opportunity to experience art installed in informal and vividly settings.

Eric Inkala is a self-taught artist, based in Brooklyn, NY. Born in Minneapolis, MN in 1982, he was heavily intrigued and influenced in his youth by graffiti and skateboarding, which in turn became a huge part of his life. By his middle teens becoming fully immersed in the graffiti world and disregarding almost every aspect of developing as a “normal teen” and spending most nights painting trains and walls around Minneapolis and making a name for himself. These experiences turned into the need for more artistically, and started experimenting with photography, painting and drawing.

Through his photography he explored the candid moments of his up bringing and documenting all aspects of his life with frequent trips to New York City in his late teens which created a very raw narrative of late nights painting and partying. Being exposed to the art and culture of New York shaped and informed his early years of painting and creating which also inspired relocating to New York in 2009 where he lives and works in Brooklyn.
He has translated theses influences to works in a variety of mediums, from traditional painting to sculpture and commissioned murals. In the same manner as his photography, his paintings adopted a similar aesthetic narrative of his life, using his signature characters as a vehicle to express thoughts and emotions creating an almost subconscious biographical narrative. His current work centers on a study of line and color through reoccurring shapes and characters, which serve as a basis for exploring these objects through pattern, abstraction and re-appropriation.
He has recently shown in numerous group shows around New York City, This Gallery in Los Angeles, CA, One River Gallery in New Jersey, Gallery Poulsen in Copenhagen Denmark and commissioned at the Ace Hotel In New York City.

Gallery Poulsen discovered Eric Inkala last year when one of our other american artists, Isaac Arvold, inviteted him to participate in our 10th year anniversary show last november. With reference to that, this up-coming show includes 5 mixed works by Isaac Arvold and Eric Inkala.

The show includes 21 new paintings plus the 5 mixed works, that all have been made within the last 18 mounths. Eric Inkala will be present at the opening - this gives you an unique opportunity to meet and have a talk about graffiti and the underground artscene in New York and the USA.
