It takes a lot to be a unique artist in this day and age, some days you feel like you’ve seen it all, and some days you come across some one like Devin Troy Strother and realize the best is yet to come. His goddess like sculptures of abstract African female forms leave you tantalized within the matte black and stark white negative spaces beside them. The same African Queen translates just as strongly in two-dimensional spaces as he collages her and others into abstract dream worlds of shapes, textures and lines, still heavily reliant on negative space. The way he addresses his canvas and compartmentalizes his imagination is awe-inspiring. His captions are only the cherry on top of these visual and textural masterpieces that draws an unlikely source, humor, into his pieces. After going through his portfolio I had to ask myself, is this the new Basquiat?
