As we mentioned when we shared photos of a new mural from Jeff Soto (interviewed) in Los Angeles last week, his show at KP Projects / MKG is fast approaching. Opening on June 27th, Nightgardens will be the Riverside-based artist’s first solo in LA since 2006. We had the opportunity to check out some of the paintings he has been working on in his studio recently, many of which deal with creatures of the night. The new works are lush and rich, rendered with a vivid color palette, and features personal […]
Currently at Rotofugi in Chicago, artist Scott Listfield has about 20 oil on canvas paintings on display collectively entitled Astronaut. As suggested by the title of the show, the works all center around a familiar protagonist seen in most of his works – the character in the spacesuit. Seen encountering everything from pop culture references, to surreal and out of place scenarios, to futuristic settings, to the abstract, his subject and the reaction from seeing these things can only be imagined by the viewer as he or […]

Opening on Saturday night (June 20th) in the Thinkspace Gallery project room is #WhereWeBeelong, a new show from Bumblebeelovesyou. The works for the exhibitioni mirror the Los Angeles-based street artist’s outdoor imagery – whimsical scenes of children at play, of course oftentimes dressed in yellow and black or peppered with references to his namesake. Take a look at some more preview images below as well as a short video… Discuss Bumblebeelovesyou here.

Last week, we shared with you some of the works Nate Frizzell (interviewed) created for the artBGC ONE Festival in the Philippines. We now have a recap of the other murals that were created by international artists like FAILE, Cyrcle., AkaCORLEONE, Kristin Farr, Drew Merritt and Filipino artists Egg Fiasco and Anjo Bolarda for the inaugural event curated by LeBasse Projects, and held in conjunction with the Bonifacio Arts Foundation (BAFI) in Manila. Our minds are still blown by the size of the piece the Cyrcle. boys painted (seen above).
While prepping for his solo (more on this later) opening at KP Projects / MKG later this month, Jeff Soto (interviewed) recently found time to paint a mural just down the street from the Los Angeles showspace.

Take a look at more detailed and in-progress shots below… Photo credit: Jordan Ahern. Discuss Jeff Soto here.
