Interviews: TrustoCorp x The Hollywood Reporter – Tabloid Magazine Interventions

It looks like TrustoCorp has drawn additional interest of THR (The Hollywood Reporter) after their initial story on the piece they did for our City of Fire exhibition. This time, the weekly trade magazine for Tinseltown spoke to TrustoCorp about their recent Tabloid Magazine Interventions. THR and Trusto had a serious Q&A session regarding artistic expression in parodying tabloid covers as these magazines twist and warp facts on numerous  celebrities in pop culture in the interest of sensationalist reporting. The Hollywood Reporter (THR): How do […]

When attending top-tiered fairs such as Art HK, one can expect to encounter many notable works by some of the top names in the industry. Once in a while, a piece will stop you to take a closer look. Famed photographer David LaChapelle submitted a photograph that took front and center at Paul Kasmin’s booth. Entitled Seismic Shift, the ginormous photograph measured ten by four feet and it wasn’t the size that caught our eye, but its contents. LaChapelle’s latest creation drew upon many of the […]

Yoshitomo Nara Pace AM 22

ADAA ’12: Yoshitomo Nara – “Works on Paper” @ Pace Gallery

Lined up by time periods, attendees such as Damien Hirst and some of New York’s top collectors visiting the booth got a chance to see some of Nara’s older works and understand the progression to the current blue-chip stage of his career. Discuss Yoshitomo Nara […]

Another booth we spent time at during Art HK was the one stocked by Takashi Murakami’s Kaikai Kiki gallery. Their booth held a solo feature for Rei Sato and her latest body of work entitled All Monsters Hold Secrets in Their Grasp. Much different than the light sculptural installation which we saw her create for the Guggenheim’s Peter & The Wolf, Rei this time showcases her signature works which feature photographs expanded on canvas, which are then painted on. As sort of an artwork on top of […]

Openings: COPE2 – “Resilient” @ Dorian Grey

Bronx street & graffiti artist COPE2 recently opened up a new show at New York’s Dorian Grey Gallery.
