US-based Derek Yaniger is one of our favourite painters of today who turns to mid-century styling and themes as a central point of reference.  His detailed paintings on wooden panels are meticulous renditions with an edge of cheeky fun a la 60′s men’s magazines!  Be the first to see this new suite of works in person.
