Esao Andrews is bringing his own special brand of gothic and grotesque surrealism to Silverlake gallery Thinkspace in October with a solo show. Here is a glimpse of his new body of work where we can see a wonderfully multicolored and dynamic edge of a dress in a large piece entitled “The Conjoined Bell” on his easel. We are sure his fans looking forward to seeing more of this show developing, but for now, take a look at the concept sketch for this piece after […]

Tim Biskup’s “The Mystic Chords of Memory” at Iguapop Gallery opened recently in Barcelona.  Based on the opening photos as well as the preview we posted earlier, it looks like for this body of work, Biskup is mixing his newer pixelated style with some imagery from the past with a dash of new vibrant colors.  Take a look at some pics from the show after the jump…

Ai Yamaguchi x Shu Uemura Mural

On a recent trip to the Bay Area, we randomly wandered into a Shu Uemura boutique on Fillmore Street. Although we knew that Ai Yamaguchi has done work with the popular Japanese cosmetic line in the past, we didn’t realize that she had painted a huge mural for this location several years back. For those hungering more for her work since we brought you the opening of her Roberts and Tilton show last year, check out all the photos of this stunning mural after the jump…

Openings: Herakut – No Placebos @ Red Flagg

German collaborative street art sensation Herakut (interviewed) opened their show “No Placebos” last night at Red Flagg in New York. Plenty of fans were in attendance, despite the fact that it was a “surprise” show with it being announced only the day before the opening. The packed house was definitely a testament to the rapid ascendancy and popularity of their work. The lovely Jasmin aka “Hera” and Falk aka “Akut” were on hand to chat with fans as well as sign copies of their recently […]
