Openings: Anthony Lister – “Power Tripping” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

The many faces of Anthony Lister (art mutant, street vandal, superhero activist), turned up with a couple hundred handfuls of adoring fans for his latest solo show in NYC at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, appropriately titled Power Tripping. If you are a fan of the Australian artist and his fairly constant parade of off-hand social shenanigans, then you’re in luck, as there were no shortage of them at this opening. There were more then a few costume changes throughout the course of the evening, including some social satire […]

Openings: Ryan McGinness – “Figure Drawings” @ Pace Prints

Ryan McGinness is back at Pace Prints after a seven year hiatus, but to say he’s been busy since would be an understatement. The New York-based artist, whose work stems primarily from skate and design culture has gone on to massive acclaim in that seven year stint, from further exploring his skate influences with the MOMA to his explosive show in the last days of Deitch Projects and let’s not forget all the projects in between. His latest solo show, humbly titled Figure Drawing, is way beyond just that, and without question continues to […]

Openings: “Art Truancy – Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

The year was 1994, Pulp Fiction was ruling the box office, The Beastie Boys were blasting Sabotage and a group of artists out in sunny California were brainstorming on how to start a Kustom Kulture magazine, that (unbeknownst to them) would eventually go on to be the most widely distributed and influential art magazine in the world. Famed painter Robert Williams (originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico) was riding a California wave, while collaborator, Fausto Vitello, was ripping with his Thrasher Magazine success, and with some key […]

Showing: Ian Strange: “Final Act” @ Canterbury Museum

On February 22nd of 2011, an earthquake struck the city of Christchurch, New Zealand leaving 185 people dead and ultimately 16,000 homes inhabitable. And, as a result, also leaving 16,000 families with no alternative but in most cases to relocate. Artist, activist and humanitarian, Ian Strange took it upon himself to explore these now vacant communities, while teaming up with renowned cinematographer, Alun Bollinger (whose name you may recognize from such movie credits as Lord of The Rings, among others). The goal, to shine one […]

Showing: “Timeline” @ Underdogs Gallery

The year is coming to a close and as with any year’s passing we tend to stop and reflect. In doing so, we can certainly say this was the year of the Underdogs. And by Underdogs, we mean a band of art activists turning Lisbon upside down with one large scale mural project after another, rivaling cities five times its population. The year ending show at the Underdogs Gallery appropriately titled TIMELINE takes pause to celebrate not only the year’s incredible accomplishments, but the the marking of […]

His latest work entitled Contraste, created for Portugal Telecom’s data center in Covilhã, highlights not only man’s relationship with the world his ability to create materials that are not only economically prosperous but also sustainable for future generations.
