It’s A New Day – will.i.am

A new celebration video for Obama came out recently by will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas.  What’s interesting is that alot of the street art and iconic images from his campaign were incorporated from artists such as Shepard Fairey, Ron English, and even Josh Keyes (not sure why?).  Also stopped by Subliminal Projects last night to see the “Letters and Ligatures” show and chatted a little with Shepard Fairey and he told us that some of the video was filmed on the roof and around […]

Openings: The Drawing Room @ Thinkspace

Last night’s show “The Drawing Room” (previewed) at Thinkspace opened with a tremendous showing by art fans. The long line snaked outside from the beginning to end with the gallery packed to maximum capacity. Not only were the fans there to see Audrey Kawasaki (curator) & her work, they were there for the many other talented artists that participated in the show. Photos after the jump.

Openings: Paul Insect @ Fifty24SF Gallery

Our friend Rhinomilk sent us some photos from the Paul Insect opening last night at Fifty24SF. The entrance to the gallery looked pretty badass with all of the baby head images plastered over the walls and ceilings. Follow us inside … after the jump.

Preview: Tessar Lo/Moira Hahn @ Roq La Rue

Kirsten from Roq La Rue has sent us an early look at the installation Tessar Lo working on for his two-person show (teased) with Moira Hahn opening tomorrow. That large installation he is setting up looks pretty insane with it’s patchwork of different sized pieces and mediums. Wish we could be there to watch this textured patchwork slowly take shape. More photos after the jump along with a glimpse at Moira’s works well.

Teaser: Paul Insect @ Fifty24SF Gallery

AM friend Rhinomilk sent some pics of setup for the Paul Insect show at Fifty24F Gallery for our readers to peruse.  This show, his first solo in the States, is entitled “Idea of Freedom” and will open tomorrow night in SF. “The exhibition aims to bring to our attention how our ‘idea of freedom’ is simply a facade for technology’s overbearing reach into our everyday lives and happiness. How ‘hope’ is measured by new emails and updates on our favorite blogs and sex sites. How […]

Ron English Abraham Obama Bust

Got an email this morning from Mindstyle about the release of Ron English’s Abraham Obama Bust. Along with Shepard Fairey’s work, the Obama x Abraham Lincoln remix by English would probably be one of the top two most iconic Obama images out there. There will be multiple colorways released with each one limited to 50. More info after the jump.

Preview: The Drawing Room @ Thinkspace

Just like how the bridesmaids aren’t suppose to be more beautiful than the bride at a wedding, Audrey Kawasaki appears to be making sure she’s not going to be upstaged at at her own drawing show. Curated by Audrey, “The Drawing Room” (teased) opens this Friday, November 7th at Thinkspace Gallery. She’s submitting around a dozen works on both paper and wood including this amazing die-cut piece seen above. To our knowledge, this is the first time she has used this technique. Judging from the […]

Openings: Ron English @ Shooting Gallery

Ron English’s show “The Secret History of KISS” (previewed) opened last weekend at the Shooting Gallery. He took the band’s trademark face paint and melded it with baroque era-styled paintings for an unexpected effect. It’s like he used a time machine, took Rembrandt hostage, and forced him to add the iconic makeup to his paintings. This show also reminded us as to how amazing and versatile Ron’s technical skills are. More photos after the jump.
