NANZUKA Announced Representation of American Artist Hebru Brantley

NANZUKA has announced representation of the contemporary American artist, Hebru Brantley. Well-known for his Afro-futuristic characters, the Chiacgo-born, Los Angeles-based artist recontexualizes pop culture to empower the Black community.

Back in November, Brantley presented a joint exhibition of work titled “Mythos Opus Pt. 2 & 3” at NANZUKA's outposts in Tokyo. The presentation of drawings, paintings and sculptures referenced a range of comic characters, such as Batman, and invited the viewer to ruminate on questions of manhood. Through a pop art sensibility, Brantley seeks to challenge the traditional view of the hero or protagonist and insists on a contemporary and distinct narrative that impacts and instills viewers with new perspectives.

Coinciding with the upcoming Art Basel Hong Kong, the gallery will present a selection of Brantley's latest work at Booth: 1C22. The fair returns to an in-person viewing next week from May 27-29.
