1. PJPIII (The Artist)
His story is absolutely insane. Patrick J Peters III became PJPIII (The Artist) after severe brain trauma from Covid-19. PJPIII was an entrepreneur in NYC running a very successful digital marketing agency.
He woke up sick with Covid on April 6th, 2020 and ended up fighting for his life for over 25 days. What’s even more incredible he was able to avoid going on the ventilator with Chinese herbs and acupuncture which he had done by a NYC Doctor who was brave enough to treat him while he was sick.
After this severe brain trauma he started painting. He found solace in the paint brush. We asked PJPIII to elaborate on why he started painting and he said, “I needed to do something to escape the pain and painting was my savior. I was able to leave my pain for a little while and I noticed that my art was getting better and better."
PJPIII has only been an artist for less than 3 years. He has shown his art at Southampton Arts Center where he had a show stopping featured piece of art which was 8ft X 10ft called JADE.
He is a rapidly growing force in the art world. His summer exhibition at Aloof Icon sold out.
Beyond the Hamptons, PJPIII exhibited at Marburger Farms in Roundtop Texas, has had solo shows in NYC (At Dacia Gallery) and had his first international solo exhibition this past summer in South Korea at the world famous CICA Museum.
PJPIII wants to be the most collected living artist. He has created what he calls "Bite Sized Collectible Art" which is small pieces of art (22x18 inches) at $350 (Was $500) for new collectors.He has given an additional 10% if you click here >> Check out his art here.
2. Cy Gavin
Cy Gavin is a multidisciplinary artist who creates unusual materials in his paintings such as Diamonds, staples, sand and really anything that inspires him. His art is created across sculptures, performance art and video.
His first solo exhibition Fugue States, opened in February 2014, followed by his debut New York solo exhibition, titled Overture, at Sargent's Daughters in July 2015. 10 paintings were shown and the works explored the artist's childhood, specifically his relationship with his father, as well as the tough life of growing up black in America. Gavin often paints his abstracted figures using a unique combination of paints that render the subject in "ultra-black" and contrasts the figure's austerity with bright, saturated colors for the landscapes and backgrounds.
3. Diamond Stingily
This isn’t morbid it’s actually quite interesting. Diamond’s first solo exhibition was a funeral called Forever in our Hearts opened at Egg in Chicago in 2014. Stingily's work explores various themes of hot topics that we need to be talking about today. From racial identity and femininity to memory and even touching on her childhood, iconography, surveillance and paranoia as well as freedom.
Her social and economic background was growing up in West Chicago and you will find her work represents those times and is the backbone of much of her inspiration. I couldn’t help but get inspired by this incredibly talented young artist.
California-based curator Hanna Girma notes that "Stingily courageously navigates between consolation and discomfort, personal and shared memory. Her work celebrates youthful perception, black creativity and resilience while simultaneously thrusting the viewer into their current disposition, with its fear of contact, normalized violence and ancestral hardship.”
We are so excited to see the trajectory of these 3 artists. We will give you updates on them as we learn more.
