Canadian artist Gary Taxali, an internationally known contemporary illustrator, has his first UK solo show this month in an exhibition that “slickly reimagines 1930s art and iconography,” The Outsiders gallery says. My Feelings Like You showcases Taxali’s popular approach to modern culture, a style that has placed his works on everything from Canadian coins to exhibitions at the Andy Warhol Museum.
Taxali’s graphic and textured works use oils and a variety of techniques including screenprinting, drawing and inks, often on found media and used surfaces. The London exhibition includes collage on old book covers and paintings.
