Miami-based artist Julie L. Friel draws inspiration from cave painting, pre-Colombian art, and African art. She also has great affinity for the intuitive street graffiti that inspired French modernists, and later the work of Pollock and Basquiat. Her work is a continuation of these influences, drawing also on contemporary street art (she cites David Choe as a favorite). Frequently using decks as canvases, Friel takes pleasure in dismantling the world and putting it back together in her painting.

At Scope New York, Friel is shown by Miami gallery Hardcore Art Contemporary. More looks at Friel’s work from the Hardcore Art booth after the jump.
