Known for painting in the studio, on location, and at live events, painting is truly an extension of Ari Lankin’s lifestyle. His painting styles range from conceptual abstraction to hyperrealism. Lankin collaborates in a wide variety of projects including design: apparel, film, performance, curation, and street art. Two of his most notable collaborations are that he designed a shoe for Adidas and he assisted Tino Sehgal during his solo show at the Guggenheim. Lankin lives in Manhattan, where he has had his current studio in East Harlem for the past five years, and is currently an educator at the Guggenheim Museum once a week.
