One of the annual satellite fairs we look forward to during Armory Week is Scope New York. This international fair always brings together a diverse mix of visual, performance, sculptural and photographic art from a range of emerging artists, which we find to be a nice change of pace from the more mainstream contemporary art showcased at the Armory Art Fair. This year, we saw works from street, urban and low brow-pop surrealist artists, including such AM favorites as Ron English, GILF, Brian Viveros and […]

Esteemed stencil and street artist Logan Hicks visits LA this week for an exhibition at L.A.C.E. Gallery. Entitled Thin Veils and Heavy Anchors, this latest body of work showcases the progression of Logan’s work from a professional screen printer into the artist that he is today.

San Francisco’s Guerrero Gallery recently hosted a fresh new exhibition from Remio. Entitled Man In Transition, this new body of work (previewed) was a reminder of how fun art can be both indoors and out. Utilizing surfboards, hand cranked zines, installations and a variety of graff techniques, Remio showed his talents and was not shy about taking chances. From precise pen and ink drawings to loose and abstract faces that convey the emotion and mood at the moment of creation, Remio took on the task of filling […]
New York artist GILF! recently unveiled a fresh body of work at Arcilesi Homberg in DUMBO. Entitled i Exam, this brand new series of paintings comes from a different direction (as seen in our visit to her studio) than her previous graff & stencil style. Drawing from the experiences of recent travels to Berlin and Miami and utilizing the 90s visual effects of the “Magic Eye”, GILF flips the retro switch and begs the question that in the age of digital preoccupation and corporate & marketing bombardment, […]
We recently gave you a sneak peek at French “photograffeur” JR as he worked feverishly to set up his first solo museum exhibition at Tokyo’s Watari Musuem of Contemporary Art. This past weekend, the show opened to a enthusiastic reception by the people in Japan. Highlighting his Inside Out project, which incorporated the residents from North East Japan (where the tsunami hit in March 2011), JR went big as he always does and wheat-pasted the exterior facade of the museum. On the inside, we saw a diverse […]
