DescriptionDENIAL (Daniel Bombardier) is a Canadian artist whose work critiques consumerism and the human condition. Though based in Windsor Ontario, DENIAL spends much of the year traveling and exhibiting throughout Canada and USA, with solo shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Toronto, and Vancouver.
In 2000 he adopted the moniker ‘DENIAL’ as a means of poking fun at advertising, politics and media messages that contemporary society is often ‘in denial’ about. Since then he has maintained an ongoing global street-campaign of over 500, 000 stickers, placards and murals, using the alpha-numeric characters ‘D3N!@L’. Intended as a conceptual means of marketing absurdism, DENIAL also challenges traditional notions of graffiti and public art through his bold and often satirical visual subversions.
Opening December 6th, JCO’S Place • Fine Art • Los Gatos is proud to present Enjoy Denial a sensory overload of pop art from button-pushing contemporary artist Denial. Amassing a global following, the Canadian-born street artist challenges society to re-examine the ways in which we perceive a variety of socioeconomic and political issues.
Featuring works from Denial’s nearly decade long career, his often satirical approach works to combat mass media, consumerism and advertising by taking familiar imagery and objects and re-contextualizing them into unique artistic statements that drive the viewer to question the worth and difference (if any) between art and advertising.
Building on a long line of pop driven work, Enjoy Denial finds Denial harnessing the negative corporate energies spewed upon society and turns them back against the established power structures that control our everyday lives. With this exhibition, Denial peels back layers of overloaded advertising and logos to shine a not so subtle light on the deceptions society combats daily from corporations.
