Openings: Patrick Martinez – “FORBIDDEN FRUIT” @ New Image Art

Last week at New Image Art in Los Angeles, the versatile Patrick Martinez unveiled new mixed media works with a show entitled FORBIDDEN FRUIT. The fresh work combines his signature neon light technique with sculpture & painting, taking inspiration from things like hip hop and minority culture. Examples include guns mingling and appearing with common place items like fruits highlighted by neon lights, or imagery products are placed on the wall like strange hybrids – all giving insight into Martinez’s artistic vision.

Dabs Myla x MTV Movie Awards

For those who missed the MTV Movie Awards last weekend, Dabs Myla has sent us some images from the event. The Australian husband and wife duo took it to another level with the some of the branding of the show as well as creating on site installations, murals, and sculptural elements much like KAWS did for the VMA’s back in 2013 (covered). The set design was inspired by the artists’ travels and the cities they have visited, but the recreated city was meant to bring up memories of any major American […]

Showing: Souther Salazar – “Attic Transmissions” @ Narwhal Contemporary

Currently at the Narwhal Contemporary in Toronto, Souther Salazar has a new solo show on view entitled Attic Transmissions. Continuing his signature whimsical style of painting, the Portland-based artist has created a fresh batch of works that explore a new process of taking fragments created at different times and then merging them into new compositions. His thoughts on the exhibition – “The work for this show came to me in fragments, written and doodled while living in Scrapper’s Attic. In the beginning I made piles of small drawings and notes. Each day I’d […]

Openings: ROA – “Metazoa” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

After our interview & studio visit with the Belgium-based ROA ahead of his solo in New York, we attended the opening to see the results of his hard work over the last month crafting and painting a new body of work entitled Metazoa. The show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery’s  529 West 20th Street location featured the prolific street artist’s familiar animal imagery painted on found objects with clever interactive panels or different point of views that highlight different anatomic systems in each of his subjects. Take a look at the photos […]

Streets: Faith47 – “Una Salus Victis Nullam Sperare Salutem” (Johannesburg)

Una Salus Victis Nullam Sperare Salutem is the name of a new mural from Faith47 in Johannesburg on the corner of Fox and Rissik street. The piece captures some zebras in action along with a phrase that references Virgil’s Aeneid paraphrased by the artist – “the one safety for the vanquished is to abandon hope of safety. Surrendering to the knowledge that there is no hope, can bring deep courage.” The mural spanning two sides of an old, now-vacant department store, and the imagery brings movement to the fast-transforming […]

Opening: Revok – “Los Angeles” @ Library Street Collective (LA)

Last week, fans of Revok witnessed the opening of his first solo show in LA at a popup space hosted by the Library Street Collective. Entitled simply and appropriately Los Angeles, the new body of work marked a homecoming for the local graffiti legend and consisted of a series of assemblage works which proved to be created with a further refinement in his technique and vision. Hand cutting wood pieces and putting together complex geometric shapes, the composition is then painted over in patterns that draw their influences from […]
