About the Artist

Arthur Peña (b.1982, USA) is an American artist whose ongoing body of work titled Attempt centre around fluid narratives which echo the ebbs and flows of objective situations, personal relationships and psychological stability. Arthur's imagery features a narrative driven vignettes populated by isolated and disembodied figures, potentially under physical and emotional duress. Formal elements and compositions are culled from his personal images, scenes or ideas, some not just reflections from Arthur himself but all inescapable in their potency. Each painting represents a dramatic unfolding and revealing of an ephemeral strangeness that feels familiar and distant while refusing to give up their distinct plots. Arthur lives and works in NYC, USA.
