+81 Gallery is pleased to present Here Is Today, an exhibition of latest works by Brooklyn based artists Travis W. Simon and Joe Hollier. A snapshot of their recent focuses, the exhibition emphasizes the artists' dedication to hand crafted techniques with hand-drawn type, collage, illustration, and painting. Crossing platforms from design to art, Simon and Hollier have cultivated a vibrant visual language that appeals directly to the viewer’ instinct. Hollier inputs and outputs popular culture into idiosyncratic expressions, while Simon often creates a visually dynamic experience utilizing the preexisting structures such as storefronts. +81 magazine has a history of introducing young designers/artists/typographers to the international audience, and is delighted to present these two talents.
