UPTOWN MEETS DOWNTOWN
Harif Guzman
Venezuelan, b. 1975

From photographs and paintings of eroticized female subjects, to bold mixed-media collages featuring LED lights, to graphic murals on the streets of New York, Harif Guzman creates works with a Pop-meets-street aesthetic and an affinity for humorous subversion. Guzman draws influence form his father—a printer and typesetter—as well as his adopted home of New York, where he moved at the age of five. The artist sees his practice, in which he transforms humble materials into powerful artworks, as a parallel of his life’s transformation—from a shop worker, to a skater and graffitist, to a world-renowned contemporary artist working across disciplines (that now include video, curating, and publishing).
