Kyle Reyes


Kyle Reyes is the Filipino-American visual artist from LA who explores the concept of memories in his mixed media artworks that recall his immigrant upbringing in America and the intimate life benchmarks in between that comprise his individuality. In this collaborative installation, we convey a visual slice of his at-home studio in Brooklyn to form an installation that showcase varying elements of his practice. Primarily comprised of works on paper as studies, the pieces portray cut-outs of archival magazines, screwy eyeballs, maniacal smiles, glowing teeth and hand-written text that recall religious prayers and sayings such as “What Makes You Happy?” that touch on impactful moments in the artist’s life. Coinciding with the works is a video projection that deeply delves into his collagist motifs, acting as a significant layer to tell his personal story through motion and emotion

roosi at Lichen is a initiative made in partnership between the emerging art collective, roosi and the rising interior design shop and trading designer, Lichen. For each installment, roosi will curate works by an emerging or established artist at one of Lichen’s New York City outposts. The curation may also include a dynamic experience such as installation to complement the works presented.

With roosi at the forefront of emerging trends in the contemporary art scene and Lichen, conversely, being a key purveyor of vintage furniture and quality design objects — this collaboration came about organically as the cohorts continue to make advancements in their respective industries while catering to local communities to foster a world of inclusivity and diversity across art and design.
