About the Exhibition

Anthony Gallery is pleased to announce its latest exhibition featuring the works of talented emerging artist Nikkolos Mohammed. The opening is slated for May 25th, 2023 at 5pm.

In “Defeat of Saviors,” Nikkolos Mohammed explores the power of personal ephemera and the ways in which found objects can speak a universal language. His works are sculptural by nature, presented as mixed-media collages that use sports analogies to reference large scale social ideas and themes. These works encompass individual identities by disregarding outward traits, reflecting that people are complex and multidimensional. The artist leverages his works to confront both struggle and salvation in respect to expectations around Black masculinity and the layers of how one explores their identity.

Nikkolos Mohammed is a fine artist based in Los Angeles, California. He received his BFA with an emphasis in painting from Otis College of Art and Design in 2013. In 2014, he and fellow artist Mike Reesé founded DREAMHAUS, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and multifaceted art collective. DREAMHAUS is dedicated to implementing arts as an educational tool and a vehicle toward universal innovation in South Los Angeles.
