Kira Lee: Cartoons and Characters

  • 212 Arts 240 East 4th Street New York, NY, 10009 United States (map)

NYC based Artist Kira Lee return to 212 Arts for her new exhibit. "Cartoons and Characters - A Small Canvas Show" will highlight 50 small paintings of famous cartoons all done in Lee's signature typographic pointillism style.  The shows opening event will be June 22nd from 6pm - 9pm and will run for a month. 

"212 Arts will always hold a special place in my heart, it was my very first gallery show in NYC," said Artist Kira Lee. "I am looking forward to this show. This has been a fun show to create and I can't wait to show the work."

The paintings are all 12" x 12" and are priced at a very reasonable $550 per piece.  The cartoons are all created with some of the characters most famous lines and features images from Archer, Adventure Time, Looney Tunes, Futurama, Rick and Morty, Jessica Rabbit and many others.  

"We had a very successful first show with Kira and couldn't wait to have her show again at our gallery," said Marc Leader, Owner and Curator of 212 Arts. "Her unique typographic pointillism style is a must see and ever more of a must own."

Kira Lee is better known as adult film star Dani Daniels with a massive international following.  She burst onto the art scene last year with her first show in NYC and has since shown at Art Basel, Smile Design Gallery and ACA Gallery to great success.  Kira Lee has created a new form of pointillism using lyrics and words to form the portraits of iconic people, characters and scenes.  Kira loved the idea of creating iconography with using connected typography. Using theories to outline horn-rimmed glasses. Song lyrics twisted and turned into locks of hair. Heart-aching poems carved into crow’s feet. Culture-defining philosophies stitched into a silk robe. Gathering these beautiful writings and celebrating them collectively with something as dynamic as the artist's portrait.  The results are breath-taking pieces that draw your attention and keeps your gaze as time passes.

"I wanted to do a fun show that is at affordable pricing for fans of my art.  I am really happy with results.  The pieces are fun and give a nice introduction to typographic pointilism.  I can wait to show off the work!" Concluded Lee.
