Mirroring an exhibition (covered) several months ago at the Paul Stolper Gallery in London was a display of Damien Hirst’s oversized pharmaceuticals at their Art Basel Miami booth. The Schizophrenogenesis works consist of sculptural renditions that are an extension of his pill cabinet pieces as well as his fascination with the medical field as well as screen prints. See all our coverage of Basel Week Miami here. Discuss Damien Hirst here.

Last week, fans of Phil Frost in Madrid saw the opening of Intuitive Mathematics, a solo showing at Galeria Javier Lopez and his first in Spain. Seen were large scale works as well as found objects that were painted over with his recognizable aesthetic, something he calls “intuitive perceptive portraiture.” Layers upon layers of typographical and geometric shapes flow in repeating patterns that he honed to perfection over time with mark-making on the streets.

Several weeks ago, CHG Circa in Los Angeles hosted the opening of Nate Frizzell’s (interviewed) new show. entitled Dark Was The Night, the new paintings featured his imagery set against a stark black background, somehow making his characters and renderings seem more vivid. Seen were the children that frequently inhabit his visual language as well as the interplay between their use of animal costumes and the actual wild creatures that roam his world. Some more photos below but head over for a look yourself before it closes on December 6th. Photos via […]

Continuing to make his mark in New York with high profile projects (also see Barclays Center & BAM), José Parlá recently unveiled a new mural in the One World Trade Center. The 1776 feet tall building in Manhattan took 13 years of construction and cost $3.9 billion, and stands near where the Twin Towers collapsed after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. The locally based artist was the perfect choice in terms of his history in the area as well as the fact that the curatorial team was looking […]
