Releases: Final “LOST” Prints

With the finale of our beloved “LOST” show scheduled for tonight, we thought it was a good time to highlight the last series of prints inspired by the sci-fi drama.

Take a look at some other images after […]

Preview: Richard Colman – “Keep Out the Light” @ New Image Art

Set to open tonight at New Image Art is Richard Colman’s “Keep Out the Light”. The new body of work will feature some of the artist’s signature imagery with increasingly frantic geometric patterns interspersed with the interconnected characters that inhabit his paintings. The bright and beautiful hues of his configurations provide a stark contrast to his violent and often overtly sexual world. From the look of things, visitors will be greeted with some pretty impressive murals and installations when the show opens. Check our more […]

Streets: Ron English – “Badvertisements” @ Welling Court Mural Project

“Heroes & Villians” Book

Ever wonder how your favorite artist looks in person (like the beautiful Liz McGrath seen above)? Well, unless you live LA, Miami, SF, NY, or London, then chances are slim that you will get to meet them at an art show or event. While most people focus on the art, “Heroes & Villians” photographers Roman Cho and Tatiana Wills decided to center their attention on the actual artists themselves. And now that they have signed a deal with ZERO+ Publishing, hopefully you will get a […]
