WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Group art show opening
With Friends Like These
November 8 – December 3, 2008
Reception: Saturday, November 8, 6:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Giant Robot is proud to present With Friends Like These, a group show featuring new works by Isaac Lin and AJ Fosik.

After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design in 1998 with a BFA in painting, Isaac Tin Wei Lin moved to Philadelphia. There, he became a Space 1026 member, made paintings and screen prints, participated in shows, and worked odd jobs. In 2003, he moved to San Francisco to attend California College of the Arts. Completing his MFA, he attended a two-month long residency at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Having had his fill of school, he returned to Philadelphia where he continues to create art ranging from psychedelic, hyper detailed illustration to found photos adormed with geometric corruption.

Drawing inspiration from his background creating street art and signage, AJ Fosik is a Philadelphia-based sculptor who creates animal abstractions, or as he calls them “existential fetishes.” Totemic apparitions of ursine beasts and delicately rendered paintings skirt American folk art and psychedelia. Viewers are confronted with cryptic symbols from overlapping sources, both traditional and contemporary, creating a dynamic tension where art and viewer come together in an expanded definition of culture and assumption.

A reception for Lin and Fosik will be held from 6:30 to 10:00 on Saturday, November 8. For more information about the artists, GRNY, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
