Reginald Sylvester II formerly known as Slvstr introduced his third solo exhibition entitled "Reaching For Heaven" at New York's historic Pace Prints. As tradition at the gallery, the collection of work was created exclusively on paper as opposed to canvas. Sylvester's latest paintings remove the idea of character while emphasizing an exploration of color and form.  “I’m trying to take it to a place where form and color are the characters in the work,” says Sylvester.

The eager crowd that filled the gallery within minutes of opening confirms a few things. Firstly, the art scene in New York is finally opening up to a younger, more diverse demographic that's digitally connected. The level of Instagram and Snapchat content from the event reflects this.  One doesn't typically see this type of scene at Chelsea gallery openings. Secondly, and more importantly, Sylvester is an inspiration to a generation that is bubbling with creativity and enthusiasm. In the words of Pharell Williams, whom Reginald is a huge fan, "You can do it too."

"Reaching For Heaven"  runs from March 4 - April 9.
