Hong Kong's Pedder Street Gallery presents a personal exhibition by Jin Meyerson "Before and after the end". The artist creates psychedelic pictures, inspired by images obtained from the media, films, television and the Internet. Meyerson mixes digital and analog images: he distorts his original photos, and then creates effects on the canvas. The result is energetic “marble” patterns that reflect the character of urban life and the endless stream of media. “The work is trying to deal with the problems of the world and my perception,” he says.
Jin Meyerson is an American abstract artist who currently lives and works in Seoul and Hong Kong. Born in 1972 in Korea.
