acrylic, spray paint, house paint, paper (gathered from building walls and construction sites in Madrid, Rome, Bushwick & Los Angeles 2014-2018), dirt, gel medium on unstretched industrial sailcloth canvas "I’m drawn to beauty of the overlooked. I “harvest” information from the city and in my studio reassemble the materials. In so doing, I create a dialogue between the materials I use and the sociocultural comments that the work leads to. The work is executed with a balance of formulaic parameters and action oriented process. Immediacy and accidental interventions play a strong role in the making of the work. I allow my artist hand to be present and discernible in all my artwork representing not only our humanity but also of distressed conditions and environments that inspire me." Cody Bayne makes mixed-media works, which fall into the category of Neo-Urban Expressionism. He has been compared with key artists of the 20th century - Jasper Johns, Rauschenberg & Warhol due to how he creates work that establishes a relationship to contemporary culture by forging a new visual language. N.U.E. offers the opportunity for the sociocultural comment that lays at the intersection of Graffiti, Art Washing & the Contemporary Art by establishing a new urban vernacular that can also be referred to as Urban Informalism. Cody has been featured by Saatchi Art's Chief Curator for their most prestigious feature, Invest In Art series in 2016 He has shown in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, New York City, Toronto, Palm Springs, Miami, and Basel. Cody’s artwork has been curated into major exhibitions along side works by important artists, such as Robert Motherwell, Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Robert Rauschenburg and Murakami (to name a few). His work is in collections across the United States, Canada and Europe.

Cody Bayne is an Artist based in Los Angeles. He has exhibited his work extensively across the United States, Canada, and Europe, and is known for his interdisciplinary approach to art-making. His practice encompasses painting, mixed media, sculpture, and new media, all of which he uses to explore themes of time, impermanence, identity, and place. Bayne's work is characterized by a personal visual language that creates intellectual and emotional connections with the viewer. He often uses materials sourced from various cities around the world to create a visual vernacular that is both familiar and foreign. His work is influenced by 20th-century art movements such as Nouveau Réalisme and Art Informel, and he has coined the terms Neo-Urban Expressionism and Urban Informalism as quantifiers for his physical practice. Bayne's artistic process involves "harvesting" information from the environment of the city and reassembling materials into compositions that reflect his interest in the beauty of flaws and the discarded. He balances formulaic parameters with action-oriented processes, and allows immediacy and accidental interventions to play a strong role in the making of his work. His artist hand is discernible in all his work, serving as a symbol of both humanity and the distressed conditions and environments that inspire him. Though Bayne does not intentionally approach his work through a filter of social commentary, he is keenly aware that the poetry of the metropolis leads to this conversation. His work is contemporary and academic, addressing impermanence, coded vernaculars, identity, and place. Through his art, Bayne strives to create a visual dialogue that transposes from walls, streets, and a personal language, and fosters a connection between contemporary art and cultural intersectionality.
