Last week, we shared some photos with our readers of Shepard Fairey’s (featured) new mural in NYC for the L.I.S.A. Project.

While there, Fairey was happy to share a drink with the Big Apple and drop some hotness as he spun a set along with DJ Mick. Take a look at more photos from the event below… Discuss Shepard […]

On September 16th, the Luna Rienne Gallery in San Francisco will play host to the opening for Cosmic Dust, a solo from David Choong Lee. The new body of work will be somewhat of a departure for the locally based artist as he moves away from including portraiture in his imagery. The wholly abstract paintings will feature patterns and organic components that seem to reference alien worlds. No word yet whether there will be installations like the amazing two-story assemblages he created for the Grand Hyatt SF in Union […]
Continuing to bring great art to Detroit, the Library Street Collective will be welcoming in Dave Kinsey (featured) for a showing opening on September 27th entitled Cushion of Memory. His work has become more abstract of late and certainly, the influences of living near the Sequoia National Park can be seen more and more from the wider vantage point and landscape views of his composition. Pulling textures, tones, and patterns from the surrounding environment (trees, plants, rocks, the sky), Kinsey’s imagery in this new body […]

Today in London, the public opening of Adam Neate’s (interviewed) newest solo at Elms Lester will allow fans of the UK-based artist to see the further evolution of his “dimensional” style. His first selling solo in the England since 2012 (covered) will hopefully include more iterations of his head shot portraits as well as development of his textured and almost sculptural full scale works. Dimensionalism will be on view through October 18th so head over for a look yourself if you are in the area. Discuss Adam Neate […]
