The Wealth of Nature by Scooter LaForge

Scooter LaForge is a full-time artist living in New York City. This is his debut exhibition in Asia. His latest body of work explores the theme of lushness and tropical growth. LaForge has commissioned garments for various high-profile performers including Madonna, Beyoncé, and Debbie Harry.

LaForge was also commissioned to provide art for an installation at Commes des Garçons founder Rei Kawakubo’s Dover Street Market fashion retail and concept store. The space featured his sculptures as well as garments incorporating painting.

In 2015, he was featured in shows at the Leslie-Lohman Museum in New York, the Friedrichshof Museum in Vienna, and the Spiritmuseum/Absolut Art Collection in Sweden. LaForge’s previous solo show, How to Create a Monsterpiece, shown at the Howl! Happening Gallery in New York, was included on Autre’s list of top ten exhibits of 2015.
