Greg Haberny – Lyons Wier Gallery, New York
Born 1970 in Stamford, Connecticut, USA
Known for his wild, radical, and controversial style of spontaneous frenetic work, New York City based artist Greg Haberny constructs no-holds-barred installations that incorporate all forms of mixed media to create a visual explosion for the senses. Haberny's installations are hugely influenced by social disorder, popular culture and underground counter-culture. Pulling from 1960's French noir films, Warner Brothers and Disney animation, political propaganda both past and present, Haberny weaves together a seemingly chaotic and random discourse into a coherent thesis addressing the very foundation of humanity, offering a visual cornucopia of rebellion, politics, humor and sometimes toxic view of life created by an artist who has a unique critical take on a world gone mad.
