Recently in the Viacom building (1515 Broadway) at New York’s Times Square, Dabs Myla created a new installation open to the public featuring sculpture, painting, wallpaper, and hand crafted objects and furniture from Modernica.

Tomorrow night (July 9th) in Los Angeles, Mark Moore Gallery will be presenting new sculptural assemblages from Kris Kuksi. Entitled New Rome, the exhibition will be the Kansas-based artist’s second showing with the gallery which will once again highlight his “hybrid style of baroque and rococo that deeply examine the human psyche.” The complex sculptures, sometimes over 10 feet wide, are painstakingly put together using things like figurines, model parts, collectibles, craft parts, and jewelry.

The locally-based artist’s mash up of subject matter is a result of her experiences growing up in Orange County and the associated visits to Disneyland and punk shows as well as vintage cartoons and William Burroughs’ cut-up writings and surrealist film. Discuss […]

With her recent series of experimental pieces with her friend Uriginal on the streets of her hometown, fans of her work now have an idea. The collaboration blends in nicely Vidal’s law of physics defying architectural imagery with Uriginal’s portraiture. Also, for those in the SoCal, Vidal will be painting a wall for the upcoming Vitality & Verve: In the Third Dimension show at the Long […]
