CB Hoyo: Keeping It Real

8th-28th February 2018

Imitate Modern is excited to present the first London solo exhibition dedicated to the Cuban-born artist CB Hoyo. A self-trained artist – “I started painting before I could walk” – Hoyo creates works that playfully questions artistic authenticity and monetary value in an era defined by fake news and social media. 

“The moment man realised he could make money just by making art was the moment art stopped being just art.” – CB Hoyo

Combining humorous, satirical slogans with his own painterly renditions of art historical masterpieces, the artist first gained a devoted audience through sharing his art on his Instagram feed. Today, he receives commissions for murals across the globe and has been named by Artnet among the ten rising stars of the world of street art. Forbes has also written a “Getting to Know” piece about his artistic journey. 

‘Keeping it Real’, opening on 8th February 2018, will present around 20 “new fakes” inspired by the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso.
