Progressive. Urban. Artist: Aaron M Thompson, a bold new vision for our time.
Working and living amid the ferment of the Lower East Side of New York, visual artist Aaron M Thompson is a new incarnation of the “artist engagé,” reflecting, critiquing and affecting the culture and politics of our conflicted, climactic times. War, death, censorship, sexuality, dreams, rock’n’roll – Thompson’s work challenges our perceptions of these major issues.
His bold, bluntly physical, even lurid style is an intuitive, conflation of ritualistic, religious and profoundly American influences into a hallucinogenic new vision. Thompson’s work fuses the divine, the quixotic and the demotic.
He has staged multiple solo exhibits in art.les.nyc studios, his unique outdoor urban art space, featuring mural paintings, sculpture, mixed media and artistic illumination.
Equally in his element – and effective – in the gallery and the street, his work has been exhibited in New York, San Francisco, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Savannah, Ga., and Omaha, Nebraska. He has joined in group shows at such innovative, taste-making venues as La Mama La Galleria, Ridge Street Gallery, Antagonist Art Movement, Elura Enterprises, Art Gotham-Chelsea, AIR Gallery- Chelsea, Artists Space- SOHO, Flux Factory, Three Columns Gallery- Harvard, Mass., Chashama Gallery- ELC and Friends, ABC No Rio, Musee de Mononian, and the Opus Gallery.
