Steve Harrington has announced his new solo exhibition, “Magic Hour”, backed by Nike, set to open in April. The artist is set to debut a collection of fun, immersive works in the form of paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Known for his use of outlandish color and eccentric style, the artist states that the exhibit is, “an over-the-top world of poppy colors, wild characters, and psychedelic dreams.” The exhibit will not only be supported by Nike, but the two entities will debut the latest capsule collection in their years-long collaborative partnership.

Harrington’s website has released a statement, stating, “Magic Hour is a journey through the last few years of the artist’s life—vibrant encapsulations of personal moments that also translate to simple themes all viewers can connect to. Just as the magic hour straddles time between day and night, these works walk the line between lighthearted playfulness and something a bit more nuanced, image for the sake of image and icons that inspire narrative. “At the end of the day,” Harrington says, “it’s about sitting down in front of a piece of paper and freely exploring.” Bold, flat colors, abstract hints of nostalgia, and familiar yet surprising forms all invite the viewer in. What happens then is anyone’s guess.”
