CURATED PROJECTS

Artists Wanted Booth E22 Art Takes London

Artists Wanted is a collaborative project between several New York City artists and creative organizations working to build new lasting opportunities for emerging talent. Through hosting online portfolios and open calls for art, Artists Wanted provides multiple channels to discover and showcase emerging artists across the globe. Founders Jason Goodman and William Etundi Jr. believe great talent deserves endless attention, and have made it their mission to support artistic endeavors through unique, far-reaching and lasting opportunities. Over the past 5 years, Artists Wanted has awarded emerging creative talents with over $100,000 in grants, several highprofile gallery receptions, exposure to hundreds of thousands of viewers, as well as a year of free living in a $1.2 million dollar New York City apartment, with much more to come. Featured Artist | Yuhi Hasegawa A PORTRAIT OF AN OLD MAN (No country for old men) The work of Yuhi Hasegawa explores the instinctive, and the primitive qualities of human beings. Through the process of painting, he reveals the concealable inner meanings of human behaviors in private and public situations. These behaviors are constantly swaying between the extremes of innate, and acquired human characteristics. Yuhi’s paintings are not literal narratives, rather dark suggestions of the hybrids from nomadic and urban existences, sophisticated and barbarian in equal measure.
