Mikael B: Flow State

8811 Beverly Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA 90048
May 01, 8 PM - 10 PM — ends May 31, 2021
Maddox Gallery is proud to present Flow State, a solo exhibition of works by urban contemporary artist, Mikael B.

Opening on the 1st May 2021, Mikael B’s latest body of work follows three years of preparation, experimentation and the pursuit of his full potential.

Inspired by Dalí, Kay Sage, Pollock, Peter Saul and Albert Oehlen, Flow State unanimously explores, juxtaposes and reconciles the three worlds of abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and surrealism, with Mikael’s signature idiom. Showcasing an array of vibrant canvases where colours and geometric shapes organically flow into one another, the exhibition explores the tension between the process of creating art and the experience of art.

As a self-described outsider, Mikael B is constantly breaking through barriers, operating between genres and carving his own path. As a result, Flow State is so much more than a typical white walls experience. Rather than accept the classic gallery format, Mikael has taken over everything from the gallery space to the walls themselves. From the moment you step in, you are entering into Mikael’s futuristic abstract vision; a space coated in vinyl with a 3D effect that welcomes visitors to an immersive experience.
