Last month, Thinkspace Gallery hosted an exhibition from Fuco Ueda entitled Odd-Eye, her second solo (see 2014) with the Culver City showspace.

On January 7th, Fulvio Di Piazza will be opening a solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York entitled Entangled. The Italian artist is known for his anthropomorphized landscapes where mountains and forests come together to form surreal shapes of things like human faces, whales, and other creatures.
