Hitting the reset button...

Instagram fam, it's been a wild ride. We've been together since 2011! I owe you a huge debt of gratitude -- you're one of the major reasons I've been able to sustain myself as a full-time artist. You were an instrumental platform in helping me build and create hype, and you also helped connect me with so many amazing and supportive people all around the world......but, with the good also comes the bad, and like all good things, it's time to come to an end (sorta).

If you've spent any amount of time with me in person, it's probably pretty apparent that I have a deep disdain for the way things are in the art world. The gatekeepers, the artists stealing from other artists, the lack of morals in this industry. I've become really jaded and have found that it's negatively affected my attitude, my relationships with people, my creativity, and my art (I'm a diva). In order for me to get back to a better place in art, I need to start-over with a fresh perspective. Self admittedly, I've also stopped progressing as an artist. I stopped growing and I became too comfortable with this brand I built. It became bigger than me and I lost control of it. Thus, I need a reset. For me, a reset looks like starting over from scratch. I need to cut ties with the fake love, the yes-men, the gatekeepers, and the overall toxic environment that came with a brand growing faster than I could keep up with. I want to regain creative control and content control. I'm going to be cutting ties with most - if not all - of my licensing companies to limit how saturated my work has become in the market. From day one it was always about the art and creating something that was both authentic and unique, and connected with people, but I lost control of all of that. With that being said, I've remade a new Instagram account with the name @thekylemosher. I've been thinking about this for over a year now, and today was the final tipping point. I want this to be a more intimate and real relationship between the audience and myself. The power should always be in the hands of the artists and their collectors, not the galleries and gatekeepers. For those that want to come along for this new journey, take a second a give me a follow. Lots of big changes on the way and the best art is yet to come, I'm sure of it. Really appreciate everyone for following along.

Novel Noda Mural in Charlotte

Just wrapped up a 16ft x 22 ft mural at the new Noval Noda community here in Charlotte. This mural was inspired by an old boxing gym that once resided where the community now stands. It's my understanding that the brick wall upon which the mural is painted is actually the original brick wall of this old gym, which is cool seeing as that particular space has now been turned into the new complex's fitness center. As for the subject matter, there are two vintage boxers squaring off with each other, which is meant to represent the fight between the old and the new of our ever-growing city -- celebrating what was once there, as well as what is there now. Although it is sad to see things being torn down, it's also exciting to watch firsthand as Charlotte grows and finds its identity. I do think it's important that we remember the history of this city though, and as older buildings come down and new ones go up, I feel that incorporating culture and art into them is a vital way to breathe life into these new spaces, as well as an opportunity to celebrate the city's history.


New Original Paintings 2017

I'm currently working on a new series of original paintings for 2017. What to expect: a series of twelve to fifteen paintings, all fairly large in size (48" x 36" and larger), featuring some elements from my 2016 series while exploring a bunch of new color palettes. Each painting is 48" x 36" acrylic and mixed media on gallery wrapped canvas and is currently available for sale. Please email Me@KyleMosher.com for pricing and other inquiries. Super stoked to drop a bunch of new original paintings this year. My Gallery Page is updated as each new painting is finished.

New Limited Edition Prints "Hood Santa: Ricky Ross"

"Hood Santa: Ricky Ross" - This is a year in the making. Found a bunch of vintage wrapping paper last year and wanted to do this, but never got inspired enough. Absolute huge Ross fan, as soon as I saw the Santa paper I knew it needed to be Rozay's beard. That's what kicked everything off. This is available only through me as a limited edition print. There will only be 20 available as a 40" x 30" gallery wrapped print. Each is $300 and comes hand signed, numbered, ready to hang with free domestic shipping. Inquiries and ordering through email only: Me@KyleMosher.com.

Big News

Greetings guys and gals,

I apologize in advance for the novel, but thought I would share some pretty big personal news with you all.

On October 12th I will finally be undergoing a much needed and long awaited second -- and hopefully last -- shoulder surgery to repair an old hockey injury. This one is much larger in scale than the one I had done in 2005, as it is a total reconstruction (also known as a latarjet procedure). The recovery for this procedure is six months with 6-8 weeks of complete immobility. Though I am hopeful for a speedy recovery, I will inevitably be unable to create art for at least the first couple of months following the surgery. With that being said, I just wanted to give you all a heads up in case anyone has any last minute print /original purchases you've been considering, or commission work you'd like done, which would greatly help me put some cash away for bills and such while I'm out of commission. This is a great opportunity to get some one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts out of the way really early ;)

I appreciate everyone taking the time to read this update. You can find a complete listing of my gallery wrapped prints here: http://kylemosher.com/prints. If you're interested in pricing and sizing of commissions and originals please shoot me an email here: Me@KyleMosher.com.

Much love everyone and thank you for the continued support.



Kyle Mosher New Work 2016

Here's a little sneak peek at some of the new work for 2016. Please direct all inquiries here: Me@KyleMosher.com.

Kyle Mosher x Boston Skyline Art

No matter where I live, Boston will always have a special place in my heart. Boston is hard, it's cold, and it's unforgiving. It's also beautiful and rich in history. The oldest part of our nation. It shaped who I am. It chewed me up and spit me back out on many occasions. I remember, at times, not having enough money for food or gas. I am forever grateful for all the hard lessons it taught. My newest giclee gallery wrapped print, "Beantown" available in 4 different sizes. Starting at $150, comes hand signed, ready to hang, with free domestic shipping. I do have a black floating frame option available on all sizes as an added extra. Email only for all inquiries: Me@KyleMosher.com.

New Body of Work for 2016

I am constantly pushing myself to grow as an artist. For those who are familiar with my work, I am headed in a new direction for 2016 and beyond. My signature aesthetic will not change, but the style and subject matter will be slightly different. When I set out on this journey seven years ago my goals were completely different. I achieved everything I wanted and more. Now, I have new goals and a new vision for my art. My goal for 2016 is to push my work in a more conceptual and sophisticated direction. There will be a heavy Cy Twombly and Rauschenberg influence. Lots of stylized visual story telling and symbolism. Also, there will be a lot of really large paintings in terms of size. I am currently working closely with a New York City gallerist for the direction of this new body of work. I am really stoked to spread my wings creatively and embark on this new direction.

Tyler Greene Presents: Kyle Mosher

A couple months ago a student by the name of Tyler Greene from Queens University here in Charlotte reached out to me to be apart of a documentary she's filming for one of her classes about emerging artists and what it takes to succeed. Super honored to be apart of something like. Watch my excerpt below, I touch on everything from embracing the struggling, over-coming adversity like negative family members, and what inspires me.
