Teaser: Nathan Ota & RISK @ 111 Minna

Continuing an unlikely collaboration that started at the Hurley Space last October (covered), Nathan Ota and graf legend RISK will be opening a show together on July 7th at 111 Minna in San Francisco. In actuality, their partnership started decades ago in the graffiti scene with time and distance leading them down different paths.

Openings: Keith Haring @ Gladstone Gallery

Currently showing at Gladstone Gallery until July 1st, the late Keith Haring’s first exhibition with the NY showspace features never before seen works on paper. Interestingly enough, three of the large scale pieces included were created in conjunction with a series of Bill T. Jones performances held in 1982 at The Kitchen, which were executed in real time during Jones’ dances with the sound of the brushstrokes serving as the only thing the audience heard. Rounding out the exhibition are a selection of Haring’s early […]

Fans in Los Angeles will be happy to hear that the Detroit-based artist will present his new collection of works entitled Faces this Friday, June 3rd, at La Laz de Jesus. Known for his warm colors and retro style, Barr can convey more emotion with a few brushstrokes than many artists can with an entire canvas. He talks about this exhibition in his own words – “I feel the paintings for […]

Ryan McGinness showed a darker side to his work on Saturday night, when the third installment of his Women: The Blacklight Paintings series opened at The Standard Hotel’s Purple Lounge in West Hollywood. As with the events at Art Basel Miami last year (covered) and in New York early this year (covered), his luminescent deconstructions of the female form graced the walls of the establishment while similarly painted dancers cavorted about the room.  Of note, coinciding with the party was also the release of McGinness’ Blacklight Nudie […]

Openings: Miss Van – “Bailarinas” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Last Thursday, the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York was the site of French-born and Barcelona-based Miss Van’s new body of work. One of the pioneers for women street artists in a male dominated genre, the delicate yet strong characters that she paints have always made an impression with their uninhibited sexuality and freedom of expression.  For this show Bailarinas, her masked sensual and sultry “poupee” characters in various states of undress seem to have taken on the role of provocative dancers. Take a look at some […]
