Showing: Travis Louie – “The Ghost of Delilah and Other Stories” @ Gallery 1988 (Melrose)

Proof that the art world doesn’t completely stand still during Art Basel week, Travis Louie (featured) bravely opened his The Ghost of Delilah and Other Stories last week in Los Angeles at Gallery 1988 (Melrose). Trying something a little different, this new body of work consisted entirely of drawings by Travis and also in collaboration with other artists like Fred Harper, Lola, Craola, Chet Zar and more.

Streets: ROA (Los Angeles) Part II

Also, another piece following the life cycle of mice can be seen outside the gallery space where he showed. And, in case your wondering, wanderlust has hit […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: Retna – “Silver Lining” @ Primary Projects

Last night, before heading out to the requisite evening parties at Art Basel, we stopped by Primary Projects to check out the street calligraphic stylings of Retna (featured). His signature script in different manifestations infused the space with the West Coast aesthetic including the walls, floors, and doors reminiscent of his immersive show at Riviera and Riviera in August (covered).
