On July 27th, Antler Gallery in Portland will present new surreal paintings from Lisa Ericson featuring her hybrid creatures of the natural world. The new body of work she has prepared for this exhibition seems to be centered upon”mobile habitats,” plants growing on the back of tortoises that can support other wild life such as butterflies, frogs, and other insects. She will be sharing the show space with artists David Rice and Danny Samuels and their new work. Discuss Lisa Ericson here.

Entitled Grief Encounters, the animated series can be supported by going to kickstarter here, with many goodies from Chueh going to those who invest in the different tiers […]

It’s been a long time since our last Streets World Roundup so we won’t be able to catch you up with all the murals we have been enjoying the last year or so. We can however share what caught our eye in June though. Up top we have a mural from Eduardo Kobra in Carrara, Italy with a very unique placement. Painted in the famous Carrara quarry where Michelangelo and so many other renowned Italian artists sought marble for their works, the new 12 x 20 meter […]
