Young Guns Talks: Armando Veve + YG16 Finalist Unveiling


When Philadelphia-based illustrator Armando Veve was inducted into the class of Young Guns 15 last November, he was also selected as Levine/Leavitt's Artist-In-Residence, which since 2014 has earned Young Guns winners a year of career guidance and representation from the international artist management agency. The first accolade was a given — Armando is a supremely talented artist — but Armando was initially reluctant to join an agency. Did he really want their guidance? What would a rep really do for him? How would representation fit within the framework of his evolving studio practice? How would it impact the reputation and client based he had already built on his own?

Less than a year later, Armando's career is heading in bold new directions, while staying true to what made him a Young Guns winner in the first place.

Please join us on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at The One Club for Creativity Gallery, as Armando discusses his incredible creative journey and his newest intricate projects. Armando will be joined by Menno Kluin, Chief Creative Officer of 360i New York and himself a Young Guns 6 winner. Menno knows exactly what it takes to win Young Guns, and sits on Levine/Leavitt's Advisory Board, helping to guide and mentor Young Guns in taking their already stellar careers to the next level.

In addition, we will conclude the evening with a very exciting reveal — the unveiling of the Young Guns 16 finalists! Every creative professional who makes this list will move onto the last round, which will determine who will ultimately win in November and join the Young Guns family. This will be the first time ever that the finalists will be revealed at a live event, and will be livestreamed for those not located in New York. If you're one of the many young creatives who entered this year, you do not want to miss this!
