Streets: Eine (South Africa)

The last time we hung out with Ben Eine was when he was painting the “Alphabet Street” in London. He has since made headlines by entering Obama’s collection and now appears to have traveled to Cape Town to do some work. Take a look this nice project as he painted over some large vats with “FAIR SPONTANEOUS PASSIONATE CHANGE THE WORLD AND CELEBRATE.” Take a look at a couple of in progress shots as well as more shutters from South Africa after the jump…

Showing: Anish Kapoor – “Turning the World Upside Down” @ Kensington Gardens

Kensington Gardens in London is currently the setting for “Turning the World Upside Down”, Anish Kapoor’s newest exhibition of his largescale mirror sculptures. Organized by the Royal Parks and Serpentine Gallery, the new locale for the renowned Indian artist’s most recent works certainly provides a stunning contrast especially when reflected in the shiny surfaces. The four sculptures will be in residence for six months amongst the trees, grass, and ponds and will feature around the clock security. More pics after the jump…

Openings: El Mac & Damon Soule – “The Humble and Sublime” & “Tessellating Pigments” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

We are a little late with this but we stopped by the Joshua Liner Gallery a couple weeks ago to check out the joint show from Mac and Damon Soule. You may remember the pictures we posted of the street piece Mac gifted New York with while he was in town, but equally impressive were the large paintings he bought for the galllery entitled “The Humble and Sublime”, all inspired by the people he encounters on his travels. Not only does his signature patterned technique […]

Releases: Jeff Soto – “The Seeker” Print

One of our favorite images from Jeff Soto’s (featured) show (covered) last June at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, “The Seeker” has is being released as a print.  The painting depicts one of the art toys that Jeff released recently at SDCC, and would make a nice companion piece for any collector out there. The print is a 23.5″ x 36″ offset lithograph (edition of 450), and will be offered for $75, but apparently, there is a 15% discount applied to all pre-orders currently.  You can […]

Preview: Rosson Crow – “Myth of the American Motorcycle” @ Contemporary Art Center (Cincinnati)

Opening next month, “Myth of the American Motorcycle” at the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati (previously the site of the Shepard Fairey retrospective) will feature the vibrant paintings of Rosson Crow (featured). The exhibition, fueled by Rosson’s love for motorcycle lore, combines her expansive-retro style with the thematic choice of an American icon – a perfect match. The opening is on November 5th at 8 pm (open to the public), with an artist’s talk scheduled for the next day, November 6th at 2 pm. The exhibition […]

Teaser: Aakash Nihalani – “Overlap” @ Bose Pacia

Geometrically inclined Aakash Nihalani will be opening a new show at the Bose Pacia Gallery in New York on November 4th. After taking the next step in converting his public tape installations to cut aluminum gallery pieces for an LA show earlier this year, we are looking forward to what the creative street artist will bring next. Expect the new body of work to include “photography, sculpture, tape installation, painting, and interactive digital imagery”. A more revealing look at Aakash’s photographic wizardry after the jump…

Openings: TrustoCorp – “New Americana” @ Gallery 1988 (LA)

Saturday night at the Los Angeles branch of Gallery 1988, Trustocorp brought his special brand of cynicism to the very city where much of his biting satire finds its target. The show, entitled “New Americana” highlights much of what is wrong with this country through the signature remastered street signs, tongue-in-cheek depictions of what the typical American male and female are comprised of, altered products, and like his show NY – mock carnival games. Also, a souped-up shopping cart in collaboration with speaker company Klipsch […]

Preview: Date Farmers @ Ace Gallery, The Wilshire Tower

What have the Date Farmers been up to since we last saw them in New York in April at the opening of their solo show at Jonathan LeVine? Well, they have moved their headquarters from the Coachella Valley to a Los Angeles studio to concentrate their energies on their next endeavor – a exhibition at Ace Gallery celebrating the Bicentennial of Mexican Independence. With this thematic choice, we are sure most DF fans out there can see that their work which is inspired by their […]

Teaser: Nate Frizzell – “I Should Know Who I Am By Now” @ LeBasse Projects

You might have noticed this original from Nate Frizzell (featured) last week when we posted our Beyond Eden Overview. You can take a closer look at this painting (which has a homage to Banksy) after the jump, but what we wanted to let you know was that this piece is a teaser for his upcoming show “I Should Know Who I Am By Now” at LeBasse Projects in early November. It will be his second solo show at the Culver City Gallery after his debut […]

Preview: Nicoletta Ceccoli – “Incubi Celesti”@ Dorothy Circus

As we mentioned in out teaser last week, Dorothy Circus will be hosting a new body of work from Nicoletta Ceccoli (interviewed) on October 29th. The show entitled “Incubi Celesti” or “Heavenly Nightmares” is a fitting name for these new paintings. Although there is always something delicate and beautiful about Nicoletta’s work, each of these new pieces has some darker aspects to them when you look closer. More preview images she sent us after the jump…
