This Saturday night, master satirist painter Dave MacDowell will be opening a new show at the Thinkspace Gallery.

Take a look after the jump at some questions and answers as we sit down for a chat about the upcoming show and […]

Interviews / Releases: Mear One x Modern Multiples – “Global Uprising” 9 Color Serigraph

Mear One has just completed a new silk screen with Modern Multiples, to be released this Friday. It will be a hand separated, nine-color serigraph in an edition of 100, available at 1 pm PST through the Baurmann Gallery, who published the print. The subject is striking yet universal: a triumphant scene of victory as a city square is completely overrun by protesters, drawing upon recent protests in the Middle East, Europe, and the U.S. The scene is triumphant and hopeful, as a helicopter beams […]

Interview: SR-1 (Founder and President of THR Crew)

For even the casual fan of street art and graf, the THR (The Human Race and/or The Heart Revealed) crew is certainly one that they may have some familiarity with. Perhaps because of his high profile, most would associate the moniker as something that shows up frequently in Barry McGee’s work. The origins and philosophies behind the crew go much deeper though – something that was explored recently by Dan Plasma as he talked with the founder and president – SR-1. Take a look at […]

Studio Visits / Interviews: Greg Lamarche

Although we’ve been familiar with Greg Lamarche’s work for some time, it took seeing his installation at Scope NY 2010 (covered) for us to start to realize that there was definitely much more to his art than cutting and pasting paper. From his obsessive stockpiling of found and vintage papers to his keen ability to highlight specific or overlooked aspects of those materials, such as bar codes or patterns, Lamarche has a unique talent for collage and a clever approach to the medium that is […]
