We recently came across the work of Odeith and his mind-bending form of anamorphic graffiti that seems to leap out at you from certain vantage points. The Lisbon-based artist operated a tattoo parlor for a while but has since returned to art full time including commissioned work with brands such as London Shell, Kingsmill, the Coca-Cola Company, Estradas de Portugal, Samsung, Sport Lisboa e Benfica (football club) and several Portuguese city halls such as Câmara Municipal de Lisboa and Câmara Municipal de Oeiras, amongst others. Take […]

While walking through the Aqua Art Fair (covered) during Basel Week Miami, we were delighted to come across the work of Tom Fruin at the Paul Loya Gallery booth. Although we were familiar with his amazing stain glass installation pieces (see 2014, 2012), we were not aware of the versatility of the Brooklyn-based artist. On display were metal works fashioned into cop cars and grids as well as a quilt made from found drug bags. Take a look at more photos below… See all our coverage of Basel […]
On January 10th, Gallery 1988 (East) will be opening a solo show from Nicole Gustafsson featuring over 25 original paintings (and a few prints) illustrating some of her favorite video games, tv shows, and films of mostly the 80s and 90s. Entitled Pop Terrariums, the new body of work from the Pacific Northwest based artist will combine her love for those little enclosed worlds in a glass containers with her love for pop culture. Take a look at some more glimpses below…
On January 8th, Roq La Rue in Seattle will be opening their first show of the year, a group effort from a list of artists that includes Peter Ferguson, Barnaby Whitfield, Jeff Jacobson, Sail, Redd Walitzki, Sam Wolfe Connelly, Chie Yoshii, Mandy Greer, Casey Weldon , Rose Freymuth-Frazier, Jennifer McNeely, Andrea Wicklund, Erica Rose Levine, and Zachari Logan (cropped image seen above).

Along with a large installation piece as part of The Dean Collection at SCOPE Miami and an underwater art extravaganza at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel pool, Swoon (interviewed) also presented a new mural for her fans that made it out to Basel Week Miami. Housed in the prestigious Wynwood Walls complex, the large wall will be preserved for future travelers. Take a look at more photos below… See all our coverage of Basel Week Miami here.

Currently on view at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City is a solo show from Soey Milk entitled SINAVRO, which is a pure Korean word translated loosely to mean “to progress slowly, almost imperceptibly.” Those who have followed evolution of the young Los Angeles-based artist’s work certainly have seen a move toward richer backgrounds and more intricate detailing in her feminine portraiture. Head over before January 10th if you want to check out her new paintings and drawings as well as a few purely abstract pieces that seem […]
Like in 2013 (covered), 2014 saw POW! WOW! Hawaii collaborate again with the annual gathering of RVCA’s advocates and artists for their winter getaway. Along with a highlight performance by Action Bronson at Republick to launch a BornXRaised and RVCA collaboration, guests also enjoyed watching a new mural (see video below by Andrew Tran) go up at the Keolu Skatepark in Kailua, Hawaii, painted by Dmote and Soul. Along with the footage of the mural, also check out more photos from the event below. Photo credit: Brandon Shigeta.
Yesterday, we stopped by on the last day of the soldout Kevin Peterson show at Thinkspace Gallery to check out his new paintings. Collectively entitled Remnants, the fresh collection of works feature the Houston-based artist’s children and animal portraiture in urban settings. Utilizing these unlikely subjects with such stark backgrounds often featuring graffiti, abandoned structures, and overgrowth provides a contrast that is recognizable in all of his work. Some of the pieces had three-dimensional elements included (like metal grills) that fit in seamlessly into the […]
While taking in the art at the Untitled. art fair (covered) in Miami, we stopped by the booth from Mexico City’s Anonymous Gallery to check out a few works from Pryce Lee. Along with pairing an open cage with one of his “bird hitting the window” works, the artist who balances his time between New York and the UK also contributed one of his signature bullet pieces, but this time incorporating an aquarium. See all our coverage of Basel Week Miami here. Discuss Pryce Lee here.
