JR Phototruck In Los Angeles

Since last year when we first learned of JR’s (interviewed) photobooth truck in Japan, the mobile unit has made its way to many different locales (including New York’s Time Square) spreading his Inside Out love. The truck has now traveled to Los Angeles and is currently located at 7600 Beverly Blvd until 7 pm tonight if you want to get your photo taken and participate. For future locations (next stop is Las Vegas) you can follow the plans on their website or Instagram. Discuss JR here.

Upcoming / Streets: Nychos – “Silly Slicesophy” @ Mighty Tanaka (New York)

After recently gifting San Francisco with a new mural, Nychos has headed to the other coast for a showing in New York. Silly Slicesophy will open Friday night (August 9th) in Brooklyn at the Mighty Tanaka.

Preview: Eric Joyner – “First World Problems” @ Corey Helford Gallery

This Saturday night (August 10th), Eric Joyner (interviewed) will be opening a new solo show at Corey Helford Gallery. Bringing his robots into the city, where his other favorite subject (donuts) are in much abundance will make for excellent material for his special form of portraiture. Utilizing a meme, First World Problems, as the title, the new work will no doubt add an extra layer of meaning when robot society is involved. Check out some more preview images below… Discuss Eric Joyner here.
