Here at KYU, we are a family.
Discover the artists that make KYU's soul come to life in our restaurants.
2 ALAS - ANDREW ANTONACCIO
When you enter the restaurant, a familiar face will always greet you, and I’m not talking about our awesome hostess team. The “KYU lady”, created by 2 ALAS (or Andrew Antonaccio), has become a trademark for the gateway to KYU Miami.
We felt that 2Alas had a great connection to the neighborhood, with his artwork being found all around Wynwood and now all around the world! He helped us connect with others through art, so we had to bring his work to KYU NYC with us. The eyes comprised of chain link is his newest piece and featured in the dining room at KYU NYC.
Noah Post / "Capture the Flag" (KYU)
Post’s recent body of work implements plaster, acrylic, and ink on masonite or aluminum panels. These paintings represent the exploration of line and space invoked by the mysterious interactions of human form, reaction and memory. The result is a visual history of “stripping-down” a complex problem.
The artist’s paintings create a sense of tension for the viewer as the layers of plaster intermingle with the harsh line work. By overlapping and inter laying sheer layers of paint and stained plaster the viewer loses an understanding of which color comes first. Rather than delineating between foreground and background the work displays a relationship between drawn borders and the landscapes within them.
With a BFA at Purchase College, SUNY, Post has exhibited throughout New York and New England. He was born in Pittsfield, MA. and currently lives and works in New York City.
Noah's piece inside of KYU uses Plaster, Acrylic, and Ink on two joined panels.
Overall size: 88"H x 60"W.
Majo San is a multidisciplinary artist from Mexico City. Her work is a collection of projects ranging from murals, paintings, installations, and tattoos. Organic elements play a protagonist role in her visual code. Nature and our minds, in the way we relate to the world and reality, are her biggest inspiration. She believes everything is connected and likes to remind and be reminded of this connection.
This is a visual ode to her community in New York. Regardless of the unique and individual essence of each element in this metaphorical swarm, this center of gravity maintains balance and flow.
