The last time we saw a solo show from the Clayton Brothers in Los Angeles (covered), it was 2011. Showing through this weekend, the exhibition at the Mark Moore Gallery gives Angelino fans of the talented and respected artists another chance to check out the new body of work featuring mixed-media drawings, assemblage, photography, video, and installations. Open to the Public draws its inspiration and eclectic setup from the Sun Thrift Store in Sunland, a famous local “thrifting mecca” and includes not just the brothers’ paintings but […]

Starting September 27th thru April of next year, a major exhibition from Ai Weiwei will be on view at Alcatraz Island in San Francisco. The legendary prison and tourist hotspot is an intriguing location for the Chinese aritst’s creative endeavor as well as his message about human rights and freedom of expression, bringing his work in tension with ideas of confinement and restriction intrinsic to the locale. Seven site specific installations – With Wind (seen above), Trace, Refraction, Stay Tuned, Illumination, Blossom, Yours Truly will be […]
Continuing their art related efforts, Urban Nation recently invited Shepard Fairey’s (featured) in for their One Wall Project. Intermixing the text “Make Art Not War,” “Eyes Open Mind Open,” and “Rise Above,” with his familiar imagery, the Los Angeles-based street artist has left a visible mark in the hip Berlin district for the fans of Obey. The new mural is located right at the entrance to the U-Bahn station Hallesches Tor, Mehringplatz, at the beginning of Friedrichstraße. Shep states – “I was in Berlin for a […]
Kate Moss, who has been a muse for many an artist, was recently decked out in new Sterling Ruby painted parkas and photographed for AnOther Magazine. The paint-splattered limited edition garments, which would apparently cost you about the price of a car, are part of Dior creative director Raf Simons’ Fall/Winter 2014 collection. You can see the rest of the collaborative effort between Ruby and Simons here. Photo credit: Willy Vanderperre / AnOther Magazine (via Supertouch). Discuss Sterling Ruby here.
The geometrically inclined James “Dalek” Marshall (interviewed) recently travelled from his home in North Carolina to paint Instagram’s first ever sponsored public art at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Working on a double decker container, he covered it in his signature combination of lines, shapes, and colors creating a striking mural that stood out against the New York skyline in the background. Check out more photos below and head over for a look yourself through September 28th. Photo credit: Joe Russo. Discuss Dalek here.
Those who are familiar with Chet Zar’s (interviewed) beautifully grotesque imagery would not be surprised if they heard Halloween was one of his favorite holidays. This year, Copro Gallery in Los Angeles will be celebrating in fashion with a vintage costume party on October 18th along with the opening of a new solo show from the locally-based artist entitled All Hallow’s Eve. As you can see from the preview shots, he has been preparing a series of ghastly paintings for the occasion. Discuss Chet Zar here.
After an in studio look and associated print release, we now have more glimpses of the new imagery Conor Harrington (interviewed) has been working on for his upcoming New York solo. The peek comes courtesy of a new trailer for a documentary put together by long time collaborator Andrew Telling which recreates the narrative running through Eat And Delete as it gives a behind the scenes look at the elaborate photoshoots the UK-based artist uses for his reference. Take a look at the footage below […]
Coming up on October 11th, Luke Chueh (featured) will be opening his next solo in Los Angeles at CHG Circa. Entitled Self-ish, the new collection of paintings will feature some introspective musings as the locally-based artist takes a honest and closer look at his inner psyche. Planned for the exhibition will also be some looser watercolor that Chueh has been exploring recently. We’ll be delving deeper into the fresh body of work as we get closer to the show but for now check out these two new […]
For our latest edition of Streets World Roundup, our featured mural is from Geoff McFetridge for the new Warby Parker store in Venice. The illustrator, designer, and artist has worked with the eyewear line before, but this latest project which graces the facade of their location on Abbott Kinney is the most striking collaboratioin yet, taking advantage of the architectural elements of the surface brilliantly. Take a look at the inside of the store here and head over for a look yourself when you are […]
As part of the continuing L.I.S.A Project in New York City’s Little Italy, Crash and Daze were recently invited to collaborate on a wall on Mulberry Street. For the two legendary NY writers, the mural was a natural extension of their friendship and professional lives as they share a studio together and were one of the first to make the jump from the streets to the gallery back in the 80’s. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: Joe Russo for Arrested Motion. Discuss Crash […]
