Life’s a Beach (And a Puzzle): John McAllister’s Exclusive Artspace Edition
John McAllister’s Artspace Edition Be adrift glimmery (2016)

Here’s what you need to know about John McAllister’s beach-ready art puzzle, an exclusive Artspace Edition in support of the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA):

 

1. John McAllister has won acclaim (and a spot in the über-cool artist roster at James Fuentes gallery) for his neon-hued and heavily patterned paintings of interiors, landscapes, flowers, and other paintings. He’s part of a new generation of figurative painters who look to the history of their medium as site of raw materials ready to be mined for new meaning in the rough-and-tumble art world of the early 21st century. 

 

2. He’s has proven to be something of a critic’s darling, with the New York Times drawing connections between his work and Frank Stella, Henri Matisse, and Op Art. His work currently resides in the Rubell Family Collection and the Hammer Museum in his hometown of Los Angeles and has been exhibited everywhere from Tokyo to Brussels.

 

3. No stranger to moving his creativity off the canvas (he’s exhibited painted room divider screens in a contemporary take on an old-fashioned design), McAllister has here rendered an original composition in a particularly fun format: a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle. With a saccharine-sweet sunset and a border of patterned rainbows to match, Be adrift glimmery (2016) is a classic McAllister piece in a form the whole family can enjoy. This limited edition is available exclusively through Artspace—visit our booth at NADA Miami Beach 2016 to learn more.
