“See What I’m Seeing” A Solo Exhibition by TTK
Exhibtion from September 28th to October 1st 2023 Opening: Thursday, September 28th, 2023, 6pm -9pm Exhibition Hours everyday from 1pm – 6pm
Opening September 28th, at 23 Warren Street, New York, NY 10007 – New York based fine artist TTK debuts his most personal body of work to date with “See What I’m Seeing.”
“These paintings were inspired by people escaping from something and stepping out of what’s familiar, even when it’s uncomfortable.” – TTK
A play on TTK’s widely popular “See What I’m Sayin’” art book series, the “See What I’m Seeing” exhibit gives a surreal visual tour of how he perceives the world through paintings, photographs, and animation. TTK does more than create compelling, layered pieces; He gives insight into his previous works, adding a deeper understanding of his personal connections to these references. They are what informed him throughout his childhood and artistic career.
In a collection of pieces featuring influential people in his life,TTK brings us into his world, where there is art in everyday interaction. Through photo shoots, conversation, and more, TTK grew to see himself in his subjects, and these works are a reflection of that synergy.
“The Pandemic brought this out, thinking how I missed these people, and what these people meant to me, even if I didn’t know a lot about them, there was something I admired. I thought about how when you see them, you see me.”- TTK
TTK’s imaginative, figurative style is heavily influenced by comics, music, and pop culture of the ‘80s to the present day. His vivid creations on canvas blend depictions of urban culture with references to the sci-fi fandom of his youth. Whether it’s his painting of a Storm Trooper Winter Olympic team marching through mountainous terrain in Ralph Lauren gear, or a young black girl who finds her freedom gliding through the clouds, TTK always portrays a different perspective on the Black experience. His signature style has garnered him critical acclaim and brand collaborations with Urban Outfitters, Mass Appeal, Run The Jewels, Adidas, Viceland,and Roc Nation.
For TTK, his goals are never selfish; his career has been spent trying to give back to those who influenced him, in hopes of influencing others with their stories. For this show, he wants people to walk away feeling inspired and with a greater understanding of the limitless potential and necessity for Black creators in all aspects of the Art World.
