New abstract art

Nathan Hylden

current abstract tendencies: Nathan Hylden

Born in 1978, Los Angeles-based artist Nathan Hylden has gained rapid recognition following an acclaimed first solo show in 2007.

The degree of interest in his work is justified, with Hylden bringing a distinctive new voice to abstraction.

Partially reminiscent of Daniel Buren's minimalist stripes, Hylden's grilles of lines are applied using stencils to 'print' directly onto the canvas, echoing Warhol, urban art and contemporaries such as Wade Guyton.

Nathan Hylden: American abstraction

Impressively for a young artist who has found a successful niche, Hylden continues to experiment expansively. A recent series of works on aluminum made up of alternating layers of gesso, paint and a screen-printed image of a blank canvas (left) proves a surprising, yet highly successful departure from more established form.
