The BLK/MRKT Gallery in Los Angeles is one of the most influential galleries for new contemporary art. The artists that it shows are informed by all aspects of urban contemporary culture; influences that range from design and illustration to music and street art. Its targeted and professional approach to emerging talent has rightly caught the eye of the media, the international art scene and brand managers at leading companies. This attention allows the gallery to work as a successful platform for the promotion of promising contemporary artists.
BLK/MRKT TWO presents current work from a selection of artists associated with the gallery. These include David Ellis, Ian Francis, Mark Dean Veca, Lucy McLaughlan, Mel Kadel, Dave Kinsey, Mark Jenkins, Marion Lane, Tiffany Bozic, Gregory Euclide and Ben Tour.
Rich with striking images, BLK/MRKT TWO illustrates the most current forms of visual expression and trends in contemporary art. Like in the BLK/MRKT Gallery, the book also refrains from putting art on an elite pedestal and instead makes the progressive work produced at the conjunction between urban culture and creative vision accessible to all.
