Previews: Gehard Demetz – “Introjection” @ Jack Shainman Gallery

Tonight (April 27th) at 524 West 24th Street location of Jack Shainman Gallery in New York, Gehard Demetz will be opening a new solo show entitled Introjection. The new sculptures from the Northern Italy-based artist are created in his signature fashion of assembling the works from small modular units of wood, kind of like building blocks. Inspired by the title of the show, a psychoanalytic term for when a person unconsciously takes on behaviors or attributes of other people or of the surrounding world, Demetz has created a intriguing selection […]

Showing: Haroshi – “GUZO” @ Nanzuka gallery

Nanzuka Gallery in Tokyo recently opened the long awaited solo by local artist Haroshi (featured). After many successful shows worldwide, Guzo is the first major exhibition for the artist in his hometown. For this showing, the Japanese artist worked on a new concept and created a series of over 20 figurines carved from salvaged skate decks. After trying several different techniques of repurposing old skateboards over the years, Haroshi went back to the original concept of compressing multiple boards together and then using the resulting solid wooden slab as carving material. Through […]

Showing: Aaron Johnson – “Gone Fishin'” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

On 20th of April, Aaron Johnson opened Gone Fishin’, his first solo with Joshua Liner Gallery. For this showcase, the Brooklyn-based artist prepared a whole new body of diverse work that includes his unorthodox approach to painting and creating art work in general. The idea of the exhibition is to take a different approach to the traditional image of Americana and leisure lifestyle that goes with it. From fishing and hunting, all the way to America’s favorite snacks, Johnson pulled the stereotypical imagery through his own recognizable […]

Showing: Mitar Matich – “Encaustics” @ Galerija Juraj Klovich

On April 13th, Mitar Matich introduced his latest body of work at Juraj Klovich Gallery in Rijeka, Croatia. Named after the ancient technique of hot wax painting, Encaustics consists of mostly medium and large size works depicting wildlife caught with camera traps. These pieces are the continuation of the Croatian artist’s constant experimenting with different techniques and approaches to creating work. Though not very popular nowadays, encaustic technique was used extensively in the past from Egyptian mummy portraits all the way to works of 20th-century North American artists, to artists in […]

Releases: Pixel Pancho – “Hold You Up Forever” Screenprint

Pixel Pancho will be releasing his new, self produced print Hold You Up Forever on the 26th of April via his online shop. Somewhat more simple than his usual work, the image was originally created as a sketch for Valentine’s Day. Due to the overwhelming response by his fans and friends, the Italian artist has decided to develop this sketch into a print. The image depicts a human hand holding a robotic hand and is a classic example of artist’s steampunk aesthetics and play with […]

Streets: Nuart Aberdeen 2017 (Part II)

The other day we did a quick report about some of the new art that was popping on the streets of Aberdeen this past week, so today we’d like to bring you final look at Nuart Aberdeen. From dark alleys, grimy backstreets, to some of the most prominent hotspots of the city, this event produced a series of fresh murals, interventions and public artworks, changing the image of the Grey City. One of the instant local favorites was the brand new piece (seen above) by […]

Previews: Eric Yahnker – “Alternative Fiction” @ The Hole (Art Brussels)

After a showing at The Hole in New York last year (covered), Eric Yahnker will again be the gallery’s focus when Art Brussels opens tomorrow. As evidenced by the work that will be on display, the Los Angeles-based artist has not lost his sense of humor as he continues to navigate political issues, pop culture, and memes with ease (sometimes his best paintings are a combination of these themes). Take a look at more preview images below… Discuss Eric Yahnker here.

Upcoming: Boris Tellegan – “Pieces” @ Backslash

Returning for his third solo show with Backslash on April 20th, Boris Tellegen aka Delta will be presenting a new body of work entitled Pieces. Included in the exhibition are a series of paper collages (pictures here), sculptures, and installations, all strongly influences by the Dutch artist’s interest in architecture (also seen with his work on the streets). Rounding out the show will be a  projected video that retraces the lettering he famously applied to trains between 2014 and 2017. Discuss Boris “Delta” Tellegen here.

Previews: Kelsey Brookes – “Position” @ Library Street Collective

On April 27th, Library Street Collective will be presenting new works from Kelsey Brookes, his second solo with the gallery in Detroit. Entitled Position, the show continues the San Diego-based artist’s practice of combining his love for science and his artistic vision, drawing from his background as a former biologist and from his interest in psychedelics. The new pieces investigate both neurotoxins and the Fibonacci sequence, one which is harmful while the other a pattern of perfection in nature, all expressed with his abstract virtual language. Take a […]
