What can one say about two illustration powerhouses like Jonathan Wayshak and Nate Van Dyke? Their strong styles are highly recognizable and ridiculously detailed. Both have long client lists and previous experience in story boarding, comics, magazines, concept work, and beyond, including leaving their marks in the fine art world.
Jonathan Wayshak’s humble and lets his art do the talking. These new works are grotesque complexities that you can’t look away from. A tangle of surreal body parts that seem to tell this Chimmerian tale you just want to know more about.
Nate Van Dyke’s bold line work balances between beauty and dark masculinity. His highly detailed work gives you something to repeatedly discover and, specifically in this show, reflects a lot of him, personally.
Both of these men are honest and dedicated to their work and have been two of the strongest inspirations and influences on me since coming to San Francisco. It’s a match made in some exquisite underworld that brought these two together on the walls at 111 Minna Gallery. Their show “Fractured Minds” will be hanging through March 30th.
Attack N8 Van Dyke!
