With Friends Like These, is a group show currently on view at Giant Robot NY featuring new works by Isaac Lin and AJ Fosik (Parsons Illustration Alum).

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.

Catch the show while you can–it surely won’t disappoint.

Good work, A.J!
