Honor Titus

Timothy Taylor is delighted to present For Heaven’s Sake, the first solo New York exhibition of paintings by self-taught American artist Honor Titus (b. 1989, Brooklyn, NY).

Titus paints vibrant scenes that are simultaneously journalistic and utopic, depicting leisure activities from his lived experience and memories. The works are infused with joy and wistfulness, evoking remembrances of better times and the romance of everyday life. He creates “fragmented street scenes” that reflect a range of influences, including the visual language of jazz music, memory, literature, comics, architecture, advertisement, and 19th-century French art.

The isolation and allure of the cities where he has lived and spent time—New York City, London, Paris, and now Los Angeles—are recurring motifs. Titus feels a particular affinity with Les Nabis—the group of young artists in fin de siècle Paris that included Edouard Vuillard, Félix Vallotton, and Pierre Bonnard—both for their formal language and their conceptual philosophy.
