Momentous New York Debut
May 1st to May 5th 2019 was a huge week for Siris Hill: His first ever public exhibition, his first time travelling in over 14 years and his first public talk took place on the world famous blocks of Broadway, New York City, at the Moniker International Art Fair.
Some highlights of Siris’ experience included,
receiving broad critical acclaim for his work
being able to use his art as a platform for mental health discussion, which drew tears, hours of gazing and meaningful dialogue amongst visitors and collectors
making connections with new industry professionals, including The Met, who offered Siris a personal tour of their collection
being the subject of two collector tours by Moniker Art Fair Director, Tina Ziegler, who spent several minutes sharing Siris’ story, describing why she loves his work and asserting that Siris is one to watch over the next few years…
Highlights also included,
selling several pieces to new collectors
receiving multiple rounds of applause during his public Q&A
being tattooed by the brilliant Sarah Gaugler, who designed a brand new piece to commemorate Siris’ journey and his time in New York
comparisons to Rembrant
Siris and Statement Art would like to extend a huge thank you to the entire Moniker Art Fair team for making us feel so welcome and for making Siris’ debut a truly unforgettable experience.
