Openings: Kevin Cyr – “In Praise of Rust” @ Jonathan Levine

A couple weeks back, the Jonathan LeVine Gallery also hosted a new solo from Kevin Cyr (interviewed) alongside Doze Green and Eric White. In Praise of Rust features the New York-based painter’s signature depictions of old vehicles, especially those with the patina of age and graffiti on its surface. If you have a similar appreciation of these vans and delivery trucks seen in most big cities, then stop by to check out the work before the show closes on June 16th. Discuss Kevin Cyr here.

Streets: Shepard Fairey x Glen E. Friedman MCA Tribute (Los Angeles)

We have already directed your attention to two murals (here & here) which marked the passing of late Adam Yauch (MCA) of the Beastie Boys, and now we have another tribute to add to the mix. Shepard Fairey recently has put up several pieces around Los Angeles, utilizing a Glen E. Friedman photo, in remembrance of the music legend at a couple locations (Sunset at Las Palmas and another on Fairfax just south of Santa Monica Boulevard).  RIP. Image via the artist & FRESHNGOOD.

Showing: Eric White – “Transmission” @ Jonathan LeVine

A couple weekends ago, the Jonathan LeVine Gallery hosted the opening for Eric White’s (interviewed) solo show – Transmission. For this new body of work, the talented New York-based artist continued to explore his interest in cinematic compositions, in particular scenes where automobiles are figured prominently. The detail in these pieces need to be seen in person to be fully appreciated as they are all beautifully rendered and elicit a sense of a bygone era in the annals of movie-making.
