ARCMANORO NILES | FIRST WEST COAST SOLO EXHIBITION

By Rae Niwa

New York based painter, Arcmanoro Niles will debut his first west coast solo show with the UTA Artist Space from February 12th-March 14th. A visionary in his own right, he is bridging a traditional medium in a contemporary conversation. He’ll debut a series of 7 new dramatic large-scale paintings that explore different stages of life. On view will also be a new series of small, intimate portraits and recent work.

His poetic assemblage embraces the viewer in hues oscillating across a neon orchestration of renewal. He is saying more with portraiture in an authentic manner that is completely his own. We are brought into a scene, a narrative that walks the line between playful, personal and powerful.
