Interviews / Studio Visits: Kai & Sunny – “The Matter Of Time” @ 886 Geary Gallery

Tomorrow night (June 13th) in San Francisco, artists and designers Kai & Sunny will be putting on a show at the 886 Geary Gallery entitled The Matter Of Time. The London-based duo are known for their stylized representations of nature where their subjects are broken down in to geometric shapes and elements. Featuring color applied with ballpoint pen to their typically black & white imagery in this new body of work, the pieces deal with the passage of time. We recently sat down for a Q&A session […]

This Saturday sees a new gallery in the city of Oakland open its doors with a group exhibition entitled House Warming. When Athen B.

Streets: Wes21 x ONUR – “Big Catch” (Denmark)

Invited in by Galleri KIRK for their Out in the Open project, Wes21 x ONUR painted a massive mural in Aalborg, Denmark entitled Big Catch. The two Swiss artists have been collaborating on murals for a while now and this surreal piece that turns the prey and predator narrative around certainly shows how well their skills mesh together. Look for artists Conor Harrington, Faith47, Robert Proch & Sepe, Guido van Helten, Aryz, and the Etam Crew to make their mark before the event is over…

Rewind: Mar 19 – Jun 7

It’s time for another Rewind feature where we share some art related videos that might have slipped past you the last few months. First up is a video from Birdman documenting Miss Van and her friends Dan Quintana, Victor Castillo, and Esao Andrews paintings the facade of an an old cinema costume shop usually closed to the public on Fairfax Boulevard in Los Angeles. Particularly interesting is the quality of murals (photos here) that were created seeing as Miss Van is the only one who […]

Interviews / Studio Visits: Jan Kalab

Jan Kalab is a Czech artist that was one of the pioneers of graffiti in his homeland. As a founder of the DSK crew, his career stretched from Prague’s train yards to painting whole cars in NYC in 2000. Around that time, he developed an interest for 3D graffiti and eventually started sculpting huge abstracts letters. This eventually evolved into passion for abstraction when in 2007 he graduated from the Academy of fine Arts of Prague. One year later, he had his first solo show and continued actively […]

Streets: Maya Hayuk (Coney Art Walls)

What started out as a sunny Saturday morning eventually turned into nearly five spotty days of thunderstorms, coastline flash flooding and Maya Hayuk relentlessly riding out the storm in pursuit of her craft. As the weather went from bright, blooming and beautiful to dark, dreary and dismal, so also morphed the aesthetic of this incredible wall. The multilayered Maya Hayuk who clearly absorbs the environment in which she inhabits is obviously an introvert, masquerading as a social butterfly. Her process is both beautiful and organic. Many artists would have called it a […]

Streets: Pejac (Hong Kong)

We just received these photos of new works by Pejac created few days ago in Hong Kong. The artist who is known for his witty concepts recently spent a few days in a former British colony leaving several diverse works throughout the city. Tackling the problems of overpopulation and limited rights, the “Umbrella Revolution” as well as Chinese tradition, most of the works were very small in scale but large in their message. This once again shows the strength of public art in it’s most basic form. Re-thinker […]

Interviews / Setup: Jim Houser – “HUSH” @ Andenken / Battalion Gallery

Jim Houser is currently setting up his upcoming show (previewed) entitled HUSH with Andenken / Battalion Gallery, the American artist’s first solo in Amsterdam.

What was planned as an interview, turned into a deep and informative conversation between the two creatives, covering all kinds of subjects from skateboarding, music, traveling, family, rising kids, and last but not least, art. Hyland Mather (HM): Hey Jim, […]
