The Vera Twins Make Paradigm Shifting Art for a New Culture
We live in a moment of cultural synthesis. As old paradigms are disrupted, new forms of creativity bubble up to fill those voids. And the Vera Twins—artists Kelby and Kelvin—are producing just such work. Their paintings combine traditional art with pop culture, cartoons, anime, and politics, all while exploring issues of identity, ethnicity, and meaning through visual wit and sly humor. To learn more about how they’re pushing the culture forward, we recently met up with Kelby and Kelvin in SoHo to talk art, career, inspiration, and the simple pleasures of creativity.
