Streets: Merry Christmas from C215

What a fitting photo with the snow, church, and imagery courtesy of French stencil specialist C215, who recently showed at Galerie Itinerrance (covered). This piece is a “sacred heart” variation on a piece we featured last year at this time. Another view after the jump…

Merry Christmas from Marilyn Minter

Marilyn Minter, who we just saw at the opening of the Youtube Biennial at the Guggenheim where she was a judge, recently released a 58 x 48 inch vinyl diecut Christmas tree wall-sticker.  The Merry Merry Tree kit features some of Minter’s own eclectic collection of shiny ornaments with the topping star using some of her more classic photo-imagery (seen in detail after the jump). The tree and star are priced at $125 or only the star for $10 all available here with some of […]

Merry Christmas from Ron English

We’ll start off our series of Christmas greetings this year with this offering from Ron English (featured). Take a look at this “Camo Deer” that we first saw for the Art From The New World group show, then realized in sculptural form at the Status Factory show in NY, and more recently at his Wynwood Walls mural in Miami. The snow looks like a natural setting for it although perhaps Ron needs to add some camouflage more suited to the winter environment. Discuss Ron English […]

Openings: Kevin E. Taylor – “Dislocated” @ Eleanor Harwood

Earlier this month at the Eleanor Harwood Gallery in San Francisco, Keven E. Taylor put on a show within a show in a sense as he rendered various animals, birds, and fish on display inside his paintings at what looks to be a museum. Disclocated examines concepts of isolation, exhibition and preservation with the subjects removed from their natural state and frozen in a moment of time and forces the viewer to consider if this is the future of our companions on this earth.

Openings: Marion Peck – “What You Are, So Once Were We” @ Sloan Fine Art

A couple weeks ago, Marion Peck along with husband Mark Ryden hosted a book signing for Peck’s first fine art monograph, Animal Love Summer, at Sloan Fine Art in New York. This coincided with her recently opened and current show What You Are, So Once Were We which featured new paintings (large and small) and sculptural pieces. What really drew us in though were the portrait pieces styled after vintage photographs, each with a story to tell. Take a look at more photos after the […]

Videos: Anish Kapoor’s India Homecoming

Anish Kapoor, arguably the most famous sculptor alive, recently returned to India for his first solo exhibition split between Delhi at the National Gallery of Modern Art and the Mehboob Studios in Mumbai, the city where he was born. The thirty year retrospective, which is somewhat of a homecoming 40 years later for Kapoor who left the country when he was 17, features many of his most famous works like the pigment pieces, the distorted mirrors, and shooting into the corner. Take a look at […]

Teaser: Candice Tripp @ Copro Gallery

Something to look forward to in March next year will be some new paintings from Candice Tripp (interviewed) in Los Angeles at Copro Gallery. After a strong showing at the Joshua Liner Gallery last year (covered), we are really looking forward to seeing her new body of work. Here is a peek at what she’s been working on, a partial shot of her most time consuming painting ever. Discuss Candice Tripp here.

Update: Audrey Kawasaki

Now that her whirlwind tour and shows in Australia are over, it appears Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed) is starting to work on her next series of paintings. Judging from this piece (photo put through the Instagram filter), perhaps we will see a more somber body a work and a return to the “dark wood” pieces seen in her show in Italy in 2008 (covered). This piece could be going to one of the two shows she probably will be involved with next year in Los Angeles (Merry […]

Streets: WK Interact (Paris)

It looks like Paris recently received a hefty dose of WK Interact and also may have gotten a glimpse at a different side of the NY-based artist. The bondage-inspired works were considerably smaller than the huge mural WK just completed in Mexico (covered), but nevertheless, still made a strong impact on the City of Lights. More images after the jump…

Video: Barry McGee “TRANSFER” Footage

You may remember earlier this year, July to be exact, when we shared some photos with you of the traveling museum exhibition TRANSFER when it opened at the Brazilian Cultural Pavilion. Well, Barry McGee, whom we last saw at Art Basel Week, had a part in that exhibition and here is footage to prove it. Take a look at some rare moments captured on video as he painted and prepped for his installation at the museum. Via Known Gallery. Discuss Barry McGee here.
