This collection of work is about perspective, focus and observation…like looking through a sniper scope. The idea behind his unique plush pieces came about when Ahol was recently struck by a car while riding his scooter. During his recovery, he ended up watching a lot of daytime trash talk shows like Maury Povich. Rather than just watching the shows, he became fascinated with the audience and their cued reactions and expressions. While exploring the idea of anonymity and voyeurism, he started observing the observers of the show. Ahol honed in on these unknown audience members and incorporated the images into his art to illustrate the odd and sometimes absurd. From his graffiti roots and his iconic spray painted eyeballs throughout Miami, Ahol’s work has evolved into these part digital, part plush and part conceptual pieces. Ahol said he didn’t want to get too deep into the actual meaning of his work. He would prefer for people to explore his work and make their own deductions.
His solo exhibition at Gregg Shienbaum Fine Art, located at 2239 NW 2nd Ave in Miami, opens on November 24th.
