Gentleman's Game Brandon Friend & Jason Griffin
Long Island City, NY

About the Artist

Gentleman's Game is a collaboration by artists Brandon Friend and Jason Douglas Griffin. The creative process was visually depicted by the two in a feature piece titled "A Gentleman's Game" in their 2011 show Identity Crisis, where two chess players are seen countering projected moves by the other. Friend and Griffin have unique mixed media approaches to art which fuse seamlessly together in their collaborative works. Gentleman's Game is founded on mutual respect, trust, and fair play.
