Every year at Baby Tattooville, one of the most intriguing and fun events is the continuously ongoing “Art Jam.” For 2015, participating artists Anthony Ausgang, Sas Christian, Olivia De Berardinis, Ron English, Camille Rose Garcia, Bosko Hrnjak, Marion Peck, KRK Ryden, Mark Ryden, and Isabel Samaras decided to go with a black, white, and gray palette to create a surreal collaborative masterpiece. This will then be reproduced as a print overnight by Prints On Wood so that attendees can take a copy home with them. Discuss this year’s Baby Tattooville here.

Personally, we eyed the SPECIAL special edition Mark Ryden […]
Last week, Urban Nation curated an event in Reykjavic in association with the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival where participants were paired with an audio artist who provided the visual artist with a song, a title, a poem, a quote or a book that greatly influenced their work. The series of works was entitled Wall Poetry and featured the works of D*Face, Elle, Evoca1, Tankpetrol, Cara, Ernest Zacharevic, Telmomiel, and DeihXLF (seen here) near venues where the bands will be playing during the festival from November 4-8 in Iceland’s capital. For his part, DEIH […]

In what has become an annual tradition, Elms Lester in London will be showing new work from Adam Neate (interviewed) starting later today (October 2). As indicated from the title of the solo exhibition, Dimensionalist Painter, the British artist has been known for his unique three dimensional sculptural painting technique that results in works that engage viewers on multiple levels. The 25 new works feature familiar subjects such as portraiture and self-portraiture, but also experiments with new themes. Discuss Adam Neate here.
Tonight (October 1st) in Seattle, Casey Weldon (featured) will be presenting some new works at Roq La Rue collectively entitled Hastemaker. The surreal new paintings are rendered with a bright hyperchromatic palette, something the locally-based artist is known for, giving them almost a supernatural glow. This choice of illumination matches well with his cinematic narrative, giving the pieces an almost mystical quality. Discuss Casey Weldon here.
On October 2nd, Andenken Gallery in Amsterdam will be showing Terrain, a solo show by Evan Hecox. With this new body of work, the Denver-based artist is experimenting with more abstract forms and imagery as well as different mediums including acrylic paint, ink, gouache, collage to watercolor or colored pencil. The pieces are loosely based on the flags, so the artist is referring to them as such with titles like Community Flag or Desert Flag. By reusing the same geometric elements in multiple works, he is playing with the relationship […]
On October 15th, Brett Amory’s (featured) will be presenting a series of new works at Jonathan Levine Gallery (557C West 23rd Street). This Land is Not For Sale: Forgotten, Past and Foreseeable Futures, in its entirety, is a protest against the gentrification of New York’s Lower East Side. Amory has captured neighborhood landmarks from ABC NO RIO and The Nuyorican Poets Cafe to the headquarters of The Catholic Worker, The Pyramid Club and even Moshe’s Bakery onto his canvas like a real time archeological retrieval. Rounding out the […]
