On September 11th CULT / Aimee Friberg Exhibitions in San Francisco opened Haptic Render, a solo exhibition of new drawings and installations by Francesco Igory Deiana. With this show, the locally-based artist introduced a new direction in his work, exploring the translation of form between the digital and analog worlds. Over the years Deiana has been creating highly detailed, labor-intensive artwork using ball point pen, spray paint, and photographic prints to combine contemporary and classic techniques. For his newest body of work, he chose graphite as medium […]

Tomorrow (September 24), as part of YoungArts Awareness Day, sculptor Daniel Arsham has prepared a special interactive event in Miami. Similar to his current exhibition in Hong Kong (covered), the Brooklyn-based artist will have an installation of his “future relics” on display, with nearly 2,000 objects made of chalk that visitors can use to draw or write their impressions of the future. More info about the event and an opportunity to purchase tickets here. Discuss Daniel Arsham here.
Thursday night (6-9pm) in New York, Aaron Li-Hill (interviewed) will be unveiling a new installation at Soundwall entitled Resonance. Featuring the signature kinetic energy and geometric lines seen in the Brooklyn-based artist’s work (example above), the new piece is certainly something you want to see in person. Arranged by LeBasse Projects, the event will also see Li-Hill releasing a special print. RSVP here if you are interested in attending. Discuss Aaron Li-Hill here.
On October 10th (6-10pm), Flower Pepper Gallery in Old Town Pasadena will be presenting Randy Hage’s Façade. The New York-based artist has spent many years photographing the gradually disappearing street level Mom & Pop storefronts in SoHo and then recreating them in stunning three dimensional detail to preserve memories of their “hand painted signs, layers of architecture, wonderful patinas and intriguing history.” Take a look at him at work below as well as a preview of some of the pieces that will be on display and make plans to […]
Last week in Hong Kong, Daniel Arsham opened a new solo show entitled Fictional Archeology at Galerie Perrotin. Included were eroded sculptures featuring the human form inspired by the mummified remains from the volcanic eruption in Pompeii in 79 A.D, a contemporary look at how we may appear in the event of a similar disaster to future archeologists. Rounding out the show was a smaller version the installation seen last year in Miami (covered), a “future archaeological dig site” of modern day items like shoes, cameras, musical instruments, and phones made from chalk.

In association with the new solo from Mark Jenkins (interviewed) that just opened at the Fabien Castanier Gallery in Los Angeles (covered), the artist has released some limited editions through Freeway Editions. The Baby tape sculptures come in four different colors and are produced in a run of 10 each and is something every fan of the American street artist recognizes as the medium that is his original claim to fame. Purchase them here if interested. Photo credit: Theonepointeight. Discuss Mark Jenkins here.
The colorful sculptures of Troy Coulterman recently caught our eye, mostly humans entwined with abstract and geometric forms that drip or extrude from each figure. He currently has a show at Arch Enemy Arts, a series of works collectively entitled Full Disclosure and on view in Philadelphia through September 27th. He further states – “I chose these basic shapes because they are loaded with symbolism and have various meanings throughout different cultures. A triangle can represent future, truth or intellect, a circle can represent present, perfection […]
Over the weekend, a solo from Mark Jenkins (interviewed) opened at the Fabien Castanier Gallery in Los Angeles entitled Still Life. Aptly named, the exhibition featured mostly the American artist’s satirical and clever use of human forms as his form of art. Mirroring his street works, viewers can often time be taken unawares when thinking that his installations are actual people. Also seen are three-dimensional canvases as well as some of the tape sculptures that were his original claim to fame. Photo credit: Theonepointeight. Discuss Mark Jenkins here.

A couple weeks back, we finally had time to stop by HUF on Fairfax in Los Angeles to check out Haroshi’s larger than life middle finger. The irreverent sculpt is something the Japanese artist know for his pieces created from compressed used skateboards, but this time also there are limited edition vinyl versions of the middle finger for sale as well. Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Haroshi here.
