“The contemporary art gallery is the vision of long-time Austin-based art curator Patrick Jones. Patrick partnered with decorative arts expert Reyne Hirsch to bring SoCo Modern to life. The gallery includes collections from distinguished artists including Banksy and Andy Warhol, as well as pieces from up-and-coming street artists.”

“My work is attention-grabbing and forces the viewer to really look into it and create their own meanings from whatever they find between the lines. I tend to put a lot of emphasis on the impact of media on our impressionable subconscious and how the social media hierarchy can be inherently toxic to young people who often have no choice but to participate in it.” – Ashley Metro
