Deep In The Cut
Featuring the artwork of Chris Stain & Joe Iurato
With a steady hand, precise cuts are dutifully made, revealing the negative space that lies beyond. Like a virtual roadmap, these incisions dictate the direction and flow of the artwork, building layers of corresponding imagery. Through patience and grace, the art of stenciling goes far beyond the final outcome of the artwork, as it incorporates a delicate and intricate process that elevates the artwork into something more than meets the eye. Mighty Tanaka is honored to present Chris Stain and Joe Iurato, two predominant stencil artists who are taking their art form to a whole new level with their highly anticipated show, Deep In the Cut. Together, both artists exemplify very different yet highly technical approaches to stencil art through their individual processes and results.
Deep In The Cut is the first time Chris Stain and Joe Iurato have been paired together for a two-person gallery show. Highly influenced by each others artwork, they share a mutual respect for one another that encourages them to constantly push the boundaries of their individual interpretation of stencil work, redefining the limits of expectation.
Both Chris Stain and Joe Iurato’s artwork exemplifies the art of the process, as they use a myriad of tools and techniques to create their individual expressions. Deep In The Cut exhibits a highly unique and identifiable approach to their work, ripe with social statements, that causes the viewer to reflect on the world around them while enjoying the intricate details and beauty of their art.
