Over the weekend, the Merry Karnowsky Gallery unveiled the latest solo show, titled Good Knight, by artist Greg “Craola” Simkins (featured). Just as his previous show a year ago (covered), this new body of work from the gifted painter brought in a massive crowd (including both fans and established artists like Laurie Lipton, Saber & Dabs Myla) eager to see his latest display of surreal and fantastical imagery. It’s safe to say that his work keeps getting better as time progresses with this exhibition displaying a variety of large and small […]

Earlier this month, the Merry Karnowsky Gallery unveiled new work by artist Mark Whalen. Titled Stranded, this recent exhibition by the Australian artist shows him delving into both familiar and new ground. Recognizable themes such as the different aspects of human interaction in limited environments are present again in this new exhibition. However, Whalen also shows how these themes can be re-interpreted through the cultural traditions of ceramic vessels and pottery, which highlights a new aspect in his technique. The show will be displayed through the end of the week […]
Recently, Cyrcle. arrived in Hong Kong for their latest exhibition titled Home Is Where Your Heart Is. Presented by Above Second Gallery, this new collection of artworks by the L.A. based collective is the 3rd and final part of the ongoing Capture the Flag series which began earlier this year. As with those previous installments, this recent show focused on the mythology behind the Cowboy & Indian as well the evolving definition of what it means to be American. This was the second time that the duo has teamed […]
Recently, Los Angeles art collective Cyrcle. spent time in Portugal for their latest exhibition titled “Capture the Flag! : Conquer the Divide!” (covered). However, they also participated in the Walk & Talk Azores Festival,which featured a great variety of both Portuguese and international artists such as Vhils, El Tono, Nespoon and Topo. Cyrcle. certainly didn’t waste any time while they were in Azores and as we can see from this mural, their style continues to evolve both in style and in theme. Touching on the subject of the […]
Recently, the L.A. based art collective Cyrcle. traveled to Lisbon, Portugal for a show titled Capture the Flag! : Conquer the Divide! Putting on display a new collection of works that depart in both style and theme from their previous solo last year (covered), the group took their talents overseas to the Underdogs Gallery. This new exhibition studies the struggle of nations told through an American perspective in which both the mythology and the duality between the Cowboy and the Indian play an important role in deciphering […]
Last we heard, Hush (interviewed) was in Melbourne for a solo showing in May of 2012 (covered). Fast forward a year and this time he will be opening an exhibition tomorrow night at the Corey Helford Gallery. While here, he just finished a mural at the Branded Arts Building featuring his East meets West urban aesthetic. We’ll have more about the show soon, but for now, take a look at more in-progress photos below… Photo credit: Theonepointeight. Discuss Hush here.
Earlier this week, we brought you images of Anthony Lister‘s most recent mural in Los Angeles (covered). As usual, the Aussie’s trip didn’t end with just one piece to cover the walls of the city. On top of doing the large scale mural that sits on Beverly Blvd., he also painted inside the offices of theAudience. Creating this piece took no more than 20 minutes and as expected, Lister showed he can put on a show with his unique style, which at times gave the […]
Australian artist Anthony Lister recently arrived in Los Angeles to paint a new large scale mural at the offices of the theAudience. Continuing to use the thematic imagery tied in with the ballerina, Lister created a mural that not only shows off his signature style, but one that also shows he can move effortlessly between the confines of a studio and the open spaces of city streets. This mural sits in the the same building where JR pasted one of his pieces more than a year ago (covered), and […]
Over the weekend, artist David Flores finished a new mural at the new creative campus named “The Reserve L.A.” which is the new home of the Microsoft and TMZ offices. This artistic project for The Reserve is part of several murals that Branded Arts was brought in to organize and curate. Using a photograph of Albert Einstein as his source, Flores created a mural that’s actually made up of two layers, giving it a three-dimensional look. It’s definitely one of his best projects up to […]
Newly formed art collective devNgosha recently stopped by the offices of theAudience and painted a new mural entitled Connected. Situated in the same building that houses work from JR (covered) and Kozyndan (covered), this new multi-wall project combines the talents of Devin Liston and Gosha Levochkin. In the past, Devin’s work has always had a strong emphasis on portrait work and during his time as part of Cyrcle., he helped formed a style that gave that group a multi-faceted approach to their art. On the other hand, Gosha’s work has […]
