Nathan Jalani Taylor art showing at Hewn Arts Center Holiday Market, December 6-8th 2013

Nathan Jalani Taylor takes abstract art to new levels with his visually appealing work.  With a style entirely unique and outside of category restrictions of others, Taylor creates images that resonate in the mind, body, and soul.  In his artwork, one can see rejuvenation and growth, as well as introspection and unity.  The power of his work in undeniable. 

The quintessential artist, Taylor lives his craft.  Earning a Fine Arts and Graphic Design degree from Iowa State University, Taylor went on to work as an art designer for several major magazines and record labels.  His considerable portfolio is filled with pieces that have been shown in major outlets, such as Essence, Elle Magazine and at Red Stripe’s Tribeca Film Festival.  He has created pieces in a live setting at Love Jones NYC and toured as a live painter with Kelly Price.  He’s done this and much more… and he still has more art to create. 

Of his work, Taylor says, “Strong form and flow with vibrant colors, emitting an uplifting spiritual feel is the unifying theme.”  The colors pop, drawing your eye to the detail surrounding them, engaging you in ways you didn’t expect.  Taylor’s work is a treat to the senses.

Taylor’s art will be showcased at the Hewn Art Center in the up and coming artist enclave of Jersey City, NJ from December 6th-8th.  Jersey City boasts a thriving art community.  Cultural diversity and an appreciation of the resulting melting pot have spawned a meeting place for artistic expression in the city center, Journal Square.  Among apartments, retail shops, and restaurants, a hotbed of creative activity exists.  The decision to move to the area was simple for Ed Ramirez, founder of the Hewn Art Center.  After holding an event on Norfolk St. on the Lower East Side and finding success, Ramirez remarks that, “… we are being given an opportunity to flourish the concept.”  Their 13,000 sq. ft space is sure to provide a showcase for many events to come.

Seeing an artist in their prime is a rarity.  Don’t miss this opportunity to see Nathan Jalani Taylor’s newest work on display and enjoy an evening out in trendy Journal Square.
