If you haven’t signed up for Naoto Hattori’s mailing list yet, we suggest you do so soon especially if you enjoy paintings such as the one above. Hattori’s well known for his psychedelic, grotesque, yet wonderfully detailed work – in fact, you will not believe how insanely detailed his paintings when you finally see a piece in person. Periodically, he releases affordable mini-paintings through his email list (as well as send out scans of his gallery work). We posted his latest batch after the jump […]

James Jean has posted up the poster image “Hare” for his upcoming show at Jonathan Levine early next year. Set to open on January 10th, the exhibition should mark Jean’s entry into the gallery scene as he will stop working on Fables, his most famous series of covers from his illustration career. As noted on his blog, this poster is available as a high res download. Discuss James Jean here.
Andrew from Thinkspace has sent over some more images for part II of our preview for his “Looking Glass” show during Art Basel week. We would have to say the crown jewel would have to be the piece that Audrey Kawasaki posted on her blog last weekend. This piece was part of her installation for her “Drawing Room” show but was not completed at that time if you remember. See more pieces from the show after the jump … and check out part I of […]
Dublin based street artist Asbestos’ newest show at Safehouse Gallery features portraits of boxers from the Ligoniel Amateur Boxing Club in North Belfast. His works are reminiscent of JR’s recent show which also featured photorealistic images on found objects – well, obviously for JR since they were photos but these works from Asbestos are combination of photography and painting. His moniker is explained in his words “street art is a little bit like Asbestos. Asbestos is all around us (in the walls and in the […]
Mark Murphy over at Murphy Design has generously decided to have us give away one of Jeff Soto’s Â Special Edition books to one lucky collector in conjunction with Jeff’s upcoming museum show (previewed).Â Please check out Murphy Design’s website as they have produced many other stunning books from artists you love such as Ray Caesar, Joe Sorren, Bob Dob, Jonathan Weiner (Viner), and many more.Â They are really designed with collectors in mind and many of the editions have special versions with extra goodies.Â As […]
AMÂ Â was able to stop by last week to check out Jeff Soto’s installation of his show at the Riverside Art Museum.Â We aren’t able to show you everything as we wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise, but we do have some tasty images to keep you happy until opening night – December 13th (6-9 pm). As you can see from the photos, the museum has given JeffÂ ample space to work with for his first museum show – and he has taken full advantage with some of […]
Black Rat Press’ annual group show “White Noise” will open tonight featuring D*Face, Nick Walker, Blek Le Rat, Lucas Price, Asha Zero, Matt Small and Brian Adam Douglas. Luckily for us and our readers, we were able to see some advance photos from the special preview event last night. We love how lighting effects and ambience really highlighted each piece of art nicely. Some favorites as well as all the photos after the jump.
One of our favorite artists, Stella Im Hultberg is part of a group show that opens tonight at Limited Addiction Gallery along with Lyle Motley and Sean Christopher. She takes time from her busy Thanksgiving to answer a few questions for us including some of her plans for 2009. Interview after the jump…
Herakut’s (interviewed) show “Dirty Laundry” (previewed) is officially opening tonight but here are some photos from the preview night courtesy of Romanywg (photographer extraordinaire). The setup looks amazing – from the “flesh suit laundry” installation to the presumably custom painted walls. Everything was top notch. We had originally thought that because of the fact that it was an exhibition of pre-commissioned paintings that it would be a pretty random show.Â We were wrong.Â All the pieces in this new body of work definitely fits together […]
David B. Smith Gallery or the gallery formerly known as Limited Addiction is showcasing three of theirÂ artists this year at Art Basel (Miami) – Josh Keyes, Jason Thielke, and Gregory Euclide. The exhibit will be at the Aqua Wynwood this year starting November 4th. These artists all have their distinctive styles that we like: Keyes with his “cubism” and ecological themes, Thielke with his architectural interpretations of the human form, and Euclide with his multi-layered landscapes… David has kindly sent us some preview images from […]
