Recap | Kevin Lyons Exhibition at colette

Kevin’s latest show for colette consists of a number of drawings, illustrations, paintings, prints, and installations that explore the vibrant, colorful language of reggae and dancehall culture. Both a student and an avid collector of early reggae and rock steady, Lyons combines his formal interests and skills in illustrated simple characters, bold typography, and the fun rolling poetry of the language itself. The sheer volume, variety and repetition of this poetry and the visual screaming monsters who repeat it al throughout the space creates its own silly but heartfelt rhythm. Dancehall style bump and grind is encouraged.
