Eric Yahnker‘s first NYC solo show, Virgin Birth ‘N’ Turf, is being held at The Hole, the two-year-old Bowery space that picked up some of the pieces left when Jeffrey Deitch changed coasts. The show, which opens tomorrow night, is looking like quite the banger. Some HUGE (10 ft.) drawings will be on display in addition to sculptural and installation works. See more from Virgin Birth ‘N’ Turf after the jump, and if you’re looking to get even more hyped on the Los Angeles artist, watch our video interview with him from last year.
Los Angeles artist Eric Yahnker opened the doors of his downtown studio to Beautiful/Decay and Visual Creatures to give our readers insight into his witty, iconic work that is layered with pop culture influences and the deconstruction of its icons. Eric discusses his career change from Journalism to art, his disdain for painting, and his love of Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, and Rodney Dangerfield. Watch the full video after the jump!
B/D featured artists and pals Allison Schulnik and Eric Yahnker go on a cannibalistic Viking orgy of death in this The Singers video. Watch them club each other over the head, eat humans, dance around fire, and generally cause mayhem in the desert!
