Karim Hamid

Karim Hamied

I was introduced to Karim Hamid last week via Hiroyuki Hamada’s blog. Hamada is a sculptor I’ve been a fan of for some time, and I was pumped to read he was showing six of his works at the upcoming 2010 Art Chicago. In the announcement, he included the piece above by Karim Hamid, one of the artists he is showing with at AC and I was immediately fascinated by his work.

On the surface, it brought to mind Richard Prince and Francis Bacon, but it had a vibe all to its own… something sad, a touch unnerving, and very clearly affecting. I love his color palette, his distortions and exaggerations, but I also love that there is something about them I can’t explain. Needless to say, I can’t wait to see these in person. If you are in or near Chicago, the details for the aforementioned Aureus Contemporary group show at Art Chicago, as well as more of Hamid’s work, can be seen below.
