At the Artnet Gallery Network, we make it our goal to discover new artists each and every month, searching through the thousands of talented artists on our website and selecting a few we find particularly intriguing.
As the fall season kicks off, we’ve picked five promising artists whose works we’ll be watching closely and whose works are on view in Berlin, New York, Seattle, and beyond.
Enrique Martínez Celaya at Miles McEnery Gallery, New York
Enrique Martínez Celaya’s recent paintings and drawings are currently on view in “The Foreigner’s Song,” the Cuban artist’s first solo exhibition with New York’s Miles McEnery Gallery. A noted writer, artist, and former physicist, the artist, who is now based in Los Angeles, was raised between Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Spain. His drawings and paintings draw from his personal experiences living as a foreigner, combining a sense of disorientation and longing, with imagery that references literature and poetry, philosophy, and science. His dreamlike works offer moments of glittering reverie that allude to nature, mythology, and folklore.
