While we may not have gotten to see much of Kobe Bryant this season, we still have the chance to see what is probably the greatest display of artwork showcasing moments in the Laker great’s career. A while back, we covered the beginning of the eight part series and then followed up with a notice for the last discussion of the series. Now that all eight paintings have been unveiled, we went down to Nike Vault to see the display in its entirety. We have heard […]
Nike Vault at the STAPLES Center recently launched The Kobe Prelude Experience. For eight weeks, they are showcasing Kobe inspired artwork by different artists, and every Saturday they will unveil a new piece. Each piece is tied to a key moment in Kobe’s career. LA-based artist, Allison “Hueman” Torneros, unveiled the first piece in the eight part series the other night. Nike commissioned her to create a surreal piece inspired by his 81 point game. Torneros explains, “I wanted my artwork to portray the energy he […]
At this weekend’s Giant Robot Post It 8 show (previewed), those with a good eye and a bit of detective work would have noticed some of Andrew Hem’s (interviewed) work in a very unfamiliar style. We will show you more of this later but for now, here is a look back to Andrew’s book signing (previewed) at the end of October where there was a generous display of his more familiar original work. On this night, Andrew also took his time to sign and draw for […]
The Art Jam is the centerpiece of Baby Tattooville (see 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008). As in the previous five years, artists in attendance collaborate on the large piece from the start of the BT weekend on Friday until the Saturday night deadline. Prints are then made of this completed painting and distributed to attendees after the weekend. As you can tell from the photo of the finished Art Jam piece, this year’s painting was a more conservatively sized piece compared to last year’s 5th anniversary […]
As we continue our coverage of this year’s Baby Tattooville, we turn our attention to Michael Hussar’s Wunderland, which was a feature for the art retreat for the fourth straight year (see 2011). Those familiar with Hussar’s two night event quickly settled in while newcomers casually perused. As in the past, all of the action took place in Hussar’s suite. Models posed as muses deep into the night for Hussar and other artists to draw. Discuss Baby Tattoville here.
Those who had the chance to attend Borrowed Memories (previewed) this past weekend at Thinkspace Gallery were treated to a wonderful exhibition of new works by Tran Nguyen and Stella Im Hultberg (installation above). We last saw a solo by Tran back in July last year and a Hultberg solo hasn’t been any easier to come by (March 2010 – London). Fans will want to make use of this opportunity and visit before the close of the exhibition on October 20th. Discuss this show here. Discuss […]
