25 Artists to Watch in 2013

Jayson Musson

Based in: Brooklyn

New Yorker Jayson Musson is currently best known for two compelling, aesthetically disparate bodies of work – fragmented Coogi sweaters transformed into abstract canvases and Art Thoughtz, the satirical YouTube video series featuring the artist's alter ego, Hennessy Youngman. A True Fiend's Weight, on view through the end of January at Fleisher/Ollman Gallery in Philadelphia, showcases the former series, as did Halycon Days at Salon 94 in New York over the summer. The Lower East Side gallery exhibited both video and canvas at Frieze London 2012. Musson has also been featured in numerous group exhibitions of late, at Postmasters and FLAG Art Foundation in New York, Institute of Contemporary Art and Bodega in Philadelphia, David Castillo Gallery in Miami and West Galerie in The Hague, amongst others.
