Now based in Brooklyn, self-taught, African-American artist Christian (Xndrsn) Harbin has been honing his innate artistic skills since he was six years old in his native Alabama. At once whimsical and reflective, Christian (Xndrsn) Harbin’s artworks explore movement in lines, shapes and colors, as they suggest the movements and journeys in our lives. The 19″ x 24″ artwork featured above, “Jone,” was fashioned this year with ink, acrylic and acrylic ink on paper. Several more images captured from Christian (Xndrsn) Harbin’s delightfully intriguing solo exhibition — that remains on view through Sunday, November 20 at the nonprofit 150 West 83 Street — follow:
“Rain Dance,” 2022, Ink, acrylic, acrylic ink on paper
“My Joy,” 2022, Ink, acrylic, acrylic ink on paper
“All the Same,” 2022, Ink, acrylic, acrylic ink on paper
