Over the weekend, the Jonathan LeVine Gallery hosted all new work from Aakash Nihalani alongside the solo from Haroshi (covered).

When looking at the work—orientation shifts, shapes merge, direction inverts, foreground […]

Do not adjust your browser – nothing is wrong with the settings. It’s visual distortion at its finest and this is what Robert Lazzarini intends.

Our favorite is a […]

After creating interpretations of iconic Star Wars characters such as Darth Vader and the Storm Trooper, KAWS gives his vision on how the legendary Boba Fett will look with his signature “XX”. One of the most popular villans and definitely the most feared intergalactic bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe, Boba has one of the coolest character designs and weaponry in Hollywood. The figure looks incredible as KAWS and Medicom actually craft jaw dropping detailings such as the wear and battle damage on the armored […]

It’s a brand new year and the Patrick’s (aka FAILE) are leading things off with a special project that’s been under wraps for quite a while. Earlier in the year when we visited Faile’s studio while they were working on their trip to Mongolia, we were excited to learn about an upcoming collaborative endeavor with the New York City Ballet, but we were asked to keep this project air tight. The time has come now to share with you information about the large-scale exhibition at the Lincoln Center that will feature the many […]
