Inspired by street art and composed of recycled materials, Math-You Namie’s hand-painted portraits on fabric are in high demand among pop art collectors.


Math-You’s work portrays a sense of movement and ease through its use of vintage textiles and hand-painting with acrylics. His technique is primarily figurative, employing negative space to graphically reproduce the subjects. The color palette utilizes a spectrum of tones that complement one another for a vivid, sensuous effect.


Sources for Math-You’s unique portraits include mid-century advertisements, pop art in the vein of Andy Warhol and Shepard Fairey, contemporary street art and celebrity paparazzi shots. The wide range of influences demonstrates his grasp of pop culture and visual language.


Math-You’s work has sold at Sotheby’s twice within the past two years, and he has been featured in GLAAD’s Top 100 Artists Gala every year since 2005. Originally from Charleston, South Carolina, Math-You is a graduate of Hunter College and now resides in New York City.
