The Mythos of David Heo


Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

The simple definition of mythos reads “a set of beliefs or assumptions about something.” An artist usually starts here, and tries to extend their own mythos or shatter all premonitions of what their mythos is. That is the best part of a great art show: a personal truth and sometimes the contradictions within that exploration. David Heo is set to open Mythos at Hashimoto Contemporary in NYC, showcasing his “idiosyncratic use of mixed mediums, recurring symbols, and personal themes. Borrowing familiar figures from 1990s popular culture, the artist displaces these icons from their context.” Heo is performing a displacement of mythos.
