We’re just a few short weeks away from Moniker Art Fair which will be held May 1-5, 2019 in New York City. The international fair’s 2019 exhibitors include some of the world’s most renowned urban & contemporary artists and galleries in booth exhibitions as well as solo presentations and installations. 28 exhibitors and four special projects, hailing from 13 countries around the globe, will present work in alignment with this year’s theme, Cause & Effect, which examines our shared roles and commitment to addressing the current state of political, social and ecological issues. Create! will be providing coverage of the fair, but we’re also excited to be bringing you a sneak peek at some of the artists who will be highlighted at this year’s NYC edition of Moniker. Last week we introduced you to WK Interact and this week we’re sharing the incredible work of Evoca1!

Evoca1 was born in the Dominican Republic, where he spent most of his childhood drawing on walls and playing baseball, until eventually moving to Hollywood, Florida at age 11. 

As an autodidact, he has received his art education from the compulsive study of the old masters’ works and techniques. His pieces are a personal reflection of his life experiences, as well as observations of human behaviors and social struggles.

He currently lives and works out of South Florida, where he continues to develop his craft and research of figurative painting. In recent years, this mainly happened in public spaces where he has painted large-scale murals. His interaction with the local environments has been essential in generating the concept of his work.

Nicole Mueller

Nicole Mueller is based in San Francisco, California and works out of a studio in East Oakland. She holds a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. She has participated in artist residencies throughout the United States and abroad, and exhibited her work in Maryland, California, and New York.

She makes large mixed media collages, murals, and installations exploring dichotomies, and asserting the importance of play, surprise, and experimentation.

Her work aims to draw parallels between animation and abstraction—which both simplify, exaggerate, and select from reality—while further emphasizing painting's unique and defining relationship between surface and space.

Within her work, she is pursuing a balance between chaos and control, the spontaneous and intentional, exuberant and complex. Each piece includes moments of punctuation, sometimes comically loud or abrupt, colliding colors and shapes, and depicts a world of continuous convergence, dissipating boundaries, and in celebration of paradox.

Emanuel Pavao

Emanuel Pavao is a self-taught artist that creates streetscape artwork from household tape (duct tape, masking tape, electrical tape) and resin. This award winning mixed media artist captures the nuance of city life including murals, store fronts, graffiti clad trucks and signage. Emanuel's recent body of tape art explores the socio-economical class division and the related social norms.
