#7 Adrian Schachter
New Artist in Residence
Adrian Schachter is 99 Canal’s new resident artist who will use “Studio 1” to conceptualize and produce works for his upcoming solo show at Amanita in New York in April 2024. For the exhibition, Schachter will focus on his therapeutic drawings while experimenting with innovative surfaces and materials to explore the physicality of his art.
Schachter (b.1996, NYC) is a contemporary visual artist who focuses on researching mythology, obscure phenomena, and anomalies to challenge the notion of absolute truth beyond the boundaries of conventional reality. As such, he is particularly interested in the Medieval world, a period when religious and esoteric beliefs overshadowed the influence of science.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools have been central to Schachter’s creative process for over two years, enabling him to explore further the process of unconventionally gathering and understanding information. While embracing new technologies, Schachter upholds the integrity of his craft by referencing and drawing inspiration from history.
Schachter holds a BFA from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) with honors, New York, NY, and has shown in numerous shows internationally since 2016 in: Paris, Shanghai, London, LA, and New York.
