Artist, filmmaker, surfer, and world traveler Dustin Yellin is a maker as well as a hunter. Yellin creates intricate volumetric tomographic paintings and hunts for salvaged treasures during his extensive travels. The Red Hook Labs is a collaborative artist space headed by Yellin and photographer Charlotte Kidd. This 15000 square foot warehouse houses studios for sculpture, photography, painting, a video editing facility, a gallery and an artists’ residency space. The move to Red Hook happened once Manhattan became too expensive for artists.
Yellin has filled the space with an eclectic collection of street finds and friends’ artwork. From paintings and drawing by Gavin Anderson and Gibby Haynes to animal skulls, snake skins and giant wooden sculptures, this artistic hub is filled with natural history wonders and contemporary art.
P.S. We found Dustin through a fantastic photography blog The Selby. Thank you Todd Selby!
