Openings: Brian Viveros – “The Dirtyland” @ Thinkspace Gallery

A couple weeks ago, Brian Viveros’ “The Dirtyland” exhibition opened at the Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City. The immersive exhibition featured paintings, drawings, one-off hand-finished prints, installations, sculptural work (with the help of Gustavo Ponce), and video from the Riverside based artist all inspired by his fascination with Hispanic culture in general (bull-fighting, day of the dead, luchadores, etc) and of course, nicotine. When we visited his studio before the show, Brian was really excited to have a large space all to himself to fully […]

Audrey Kawasaki Unfinished Pieces

It’s amazing how self-critical some artists can be when it comes to their own artwork. We have even heard of some burning work that doesn’t sell after a show. We suppose that is the price of perfection! Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed) recently posted up some unfinished paintings that just didn’t make the cut for some reason or another – like the one above which would have fit nicely with her upcoming series of shows in Australia next month. Most of these paintings passed the test of […]

Showing: Kaws – “Passing Through” @ Harbour City (Hong Kong)

The show appears to be a semi-retrospective (see pics a full retrospective here) featuring many of his classic as well as new art figures, sure to be a hit among his many collectors in Asia. Although there did not appear to be any new original paintings as many had hoped, there were some drawings included, a rarity for the artist – and of course the […]
