Showing: Peter Gronquist – “Refuge” @ Joseph Gross Gallery

Currently on view at Joseph Gross Gallery in Chelsea, NY is Refuge, a solo exhibition featuring thirteen works by Peter Gronquist. The show includes all-new pieces that combine creative uses of material, such as LED lights, shaped frames, and silk flowers, with traditional painting techniques. The pieces interact with the viewer both spatially, with paintings that appear to be falling on top as they look up, such as with Master Cleanse, and visually, with its pleasant rich blue gradient. Glitch 1 and 2 appear to allude […]

Viewpoints / Openings: Dran — ‘Public Execution’ pop-up show in Soho, London

It’s been some time since Pictures On Walls has organised an art exhibition. The previous one was in December 2013 with the Shok-1 solo show, X-Rainbow. Last year, POW gave up its premises on Commercial Street in East London. With a permanent show space no longer retained, the number of print releases in 2014 restricted to a small handful (by Paul Insect, Maya Hayuk and Invader), and plenty of competitors arriving on the street art scene eager to fill the void, many wondered what the […]

Showing: Kour Pour – “Samsara” @ Depart Foundation

Currently up now until March 7 is Kour Pour’s first solo exhibition, curated by Nicola Ricciardi, in Los Angeles at Depart Foundation. The show includes the artist’s coveted carpet paintings, as well as a wall installation consisting of golden powdered incense. Unlike previous versions of his carpet paintings, which used imagery appropriated from museum and auction catalogs, the artist has created original compositions and juxtaposed them in anachronistic and cross-cultural narratives. These pieces contain images of hunters and gatherers, religious icons and mystical creatures, merchants, lovers […]

Showing: Quam Odunsi – “Distinction Without a Difference” @ Design Matters Gallery

Open right now until Dec 19 in Los Angeles is Quam Odunsi’s third solo show with Design Matters Gallery. Exploring the logical fallacy of distinction without a difference, the artist utilizes original content taken on film cameras (35mm, 120mm, Polaroid) which is silkscreened onto canvas and paper; sculpture, which includes collaged Polaroid prints; and a eye-popping original short film shot on Super8, which is shown in the back room space of the gallery. A limited edition (of 18) print of the tricycle image has also […]

Openings: Harif Guzman @ SOHO Arts Club

These days, New York’s SOHO is primarily know for its high fashion, high society and high dollar retailers. Comfortably nestled among the boutiques, however, is a sprawling 4,000 square foot, second story loft called The SOHO Arts Club.  The space—and its founder, acclaimed contemporary artist Harif Guzman—quietly provide much needed refuge to many local and traveling artists. Guzman spent many of his early years wandering the same New York City streets, when the neighborhood wasn’t nearly as polished and was certainly less en vogue than […]
Sam Falls Galerie Eva Presenhuber M Building Basel Miami AM 21

Recap: Sam Falls @ Eva Presenhuber (M Building – Miami)

As we gear up for the coming festivities of Art Basel Miami 2014, let’s look back at one of the impressive exhibitions held at the M Building by Galerie Eva Presenhuber during last year’s week of art madness. Artist Sam Falls had an excellent solo exhibition in which he showcased his multifaceted talents, ranging from his rope dye paintings and sculptures to his large scale lattice works that spanned the entire length of the M Building’s double height ceilings. It was an awesome display of […]

Openings: Faile – “Works on Wood” @ Allouche Gallery

Duality is generally viewed as good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, love and hate and the relationship they have with the other, and that is just one of the many constants we all love about the work of Faile. Provocative imagery paired with romanticized hardship, “No Expectations”,  “With Love and Kisses, Nothing lasts Forever”, and “Fast Love” just a few of the dozens of inspiring quotes found within their latest stacked fragmented cubed collage. Even their signature “1986” referring to that moment of the challenger disaster, reminding the viewer that some moments you quite simply […]

Baby Tattoville ’14: “Through The Looking Glass” @ Riverside Art Museum

Every year the city of Riverside, California plays host to Baby Tattooville, it is one of the highlights for the town and an unmistakable part of the personality of the event. The separation from Los Angeles and its art scene is part of what make the event so unique. The attendees are taken out of their environment and plunged into a Baby Tattoo world, populated by lowbrow artists, their creations and the people who love them. Each year, the Riverside Art Museum puts on an […]
