Two decades ago, in the tranquil realms of rural China, a Wu Tang CD forever altered the artistic destiny of VanceDNA. The Museum of Graffiti now brings this electrifying sensation from Shanghai to the heart of Wynwood. Renowned for his transformative ability,VanceDNA morphs American pop culture icons into 2-dimensional transparent figures, offering a fresh perspective that’s both striking and introspective. Witness this evolution at the VIP Grand Opening Celebration of “TRANSPARENT” on September 9, 2023, from 6PM – 9PM.
From the intricate strokes of traditional Juangsu painting to the pulsating energy of hip hop and graffiti, Vance’s journey epitomizes the confluence of diverse cultural inspirations. His large-scale hyper-realistic murals and oil paintings are masterpieces of light, shadow, and the captivating allure of materials like glass and ice. Through a melding of time-honored techniques and contemporary inspirations, Vance creates a visual narrative that is both nostalgically evocative and groundbreaking.
Vance, a leading figure for the graffiti crew DNA in Asia and a proud member of Thailand’s MSV crew, has showcased his inimitable style everywhere from Macau’s streets to Germany’s elite galleries.
Alan Ket, co-founder of the Museum of Graffiti, shares, “Showcasing Vance DNA to the US audience marks a pivotal moment in the art world. His works are a harmonious blend of diverse cultures, eras, and emotions, presenting a fusion that’s both compelling and thought-provoking.”
