Ken's selections


Erik Jones

New York, NY

"Erik is one of the newest artists to the Spoke roster and is already one of our most popular. His ability to blend beautiful illustrations with powerful abstractions leads to dynamic and compelling works that have been a consistent hit with our fans."

Brett Amory

San Francisco, CA

"Brett and I go way back, in fact, Brett was in the first show I ever curated, a pop up exhibition back in 2010! Since then, seeing Brett's career skyrocket with sold out exhibitions in London and New York has been absolutely exhilarating."

Scott Hove

Oakland, CA

"Scott too was in my first curated exhibit ever and I'm honored to have been showing his work nationally since, his taxidermy cake sculptures are one of those things you never forget once you encounter them in person. Hove's latest obsession with creating transportable immersive environments is a serious is going to take his career to the next level, so keep an eye out for him coming to a city near you soon!"

Joel Daniel Phillips

San Francisco, CA

"Joel too is a newer artist to the Spoke Art roster. We debuted him earlier this year at the SF Art Fairs and the response was overwhelming! His works are all life size and in person they tower over the viewer for a very impactful and moving experience."

Crystal Wagner

Harrisburg, PA

"Crystal is one of those artists who has the ability to create amazing works across multiple mediums. From large scale installations that take over an entire room to her contained and expressive framed "terrariums", Crystal's hand cut paper works are absolutely lovely and highly recommended!"
