On January 14th, Dave Kinsey (featured) will be opening a solo show at New Image Art in Los Angeles entitled Momentary Bliss. The new work is heavily influenced by his time in the Sierra Nevada Mountains before relocating back to a downtown Los Angeles studio.

David Bloch Gallery in Marrakech is currently hosting a third solo show from Remed. Plenium opened on December 23rd, consisting of a vibrant series of canvas, drawings and sculptures inspired by Spanish artist’s latest trips around the world. Constantly inspired by Moroccan culture and its distinctive elements, this body of work strongly relies on the conjunction of geometry and calligraphy. Using the flow and the energy of the line along with the vibrancy of his limited color palette, Remed is seeking a harmonic and mathematic purity with his work. Though […]
Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope recently released a new edition of self produced, hand-crafted necklaces titled The Confidant featuring his iconic bird symbol as a pendant.

Each necklace set is entirely hand-crafted in his studio and by collaborators – from the silversmithing to create the molds, hand-finishing the pendents, to the hand printed boxes and the drawings […]

Last month, Thinkspace Gallery hosted an exhibition from Fuco Ueda entitled Odd-Eye, her second solo (see 2014) with the Culver City showspace. The beautifully rendered new works from the Japanese artist are mainly created on canvas with a few smaller pieces on paper, all featuring her characteristic lush imagery and palette. Surrounded by reoccurring motifs and symbols of death (such as chrysanthemum flowers & skeletal elements) as well as disquieting creatures, her flushed girls seem to be trapped in some sort of lurid dream world.
