Hailing from Houston, Texas, one of our favorite bad boy inked models, Cole Mohr is now onto a creative new chapter. Inspired by the ever so present Americana in his hometown, his ‘Go ‘stros’ work now at Exhibition A references the process and durational aspect of tattooing, a practice which first sparked Mohr’s drawing style.
Through its imagery and mark-making, Mohr plays with a tricolored field into individual dots whose existence create the shape of scattered stars against picture plane. sweet! We first got a little glimpse of his art last year at “by RE:QUEST” show curated by Diego Cortez. We’re loving Mohr’s (very fitting) straightforward “approach to pointillism and side glance to Pop Art and Jasper Johns.”
Mohr studied under Marianne Vitale, working as her studio assistant and appearing in her 2013 Performa biennial commission, “The Missing Book of Spurs.” Born in 1986, Cole Mohr currently lives and works in New York City.
