Yves Laroche Galerie d’art is eager to present Tempest the solo exhibition of artist Other (Derek Mehaffey).
Canadian artist Other has long earned his reputation in the graffiti milieu. Bohemian artist, his art can be seen on freight trains, city walls, in train yards, and inside countless art galleries around the world. He is known for his intricate oil stick paintings that grace rolling freight trains across North America. Collecting from a variety of images and experiences, his work inside the gallery constitutes a dynamic approach to counter the limits of a more static environment inherent to established institutions. This art represents the starting point from which his street art evolves. The body involvement and dynamism associated with graffiti translates in a kaleidoscopic vision often fragmented, suggesting the whole picture but focusing only on detail creating the movement within the composition. His highly coloured body of work balances his more monochromatic street art which is often executed in relative obscurity.
