Assembling some prime examples of the American Pop artist’s Still Lifes, Standing Still Lifes, and Bedroom Paintings, the Los Angeles gallery has given art fans a chance to see some of the most striking series of works from his career.

Recap: Sandra Chevrier – “Les Cages; We Can’t Be Tamed” @ Stolenspace

Through the beginning of this month, Stolenspace in Londonhosted a new body of work from Sandra Chevrier (interviewed) entitled Les Cages; We Can’t Be Tamed. Continuing her series of paintings that examine the masks we wear because of social expectations, the Canadian-born artist once again applies her signature aesthetic of wrapping faces with comic book imagery to her latest pieces. Rounding out the show was a striking installation that crept from top of the wall to floor on the far end of the gallery. Chevrier further explains – […]

Showing: Cripta Djan – “In The Name Of Pixo” (Birmingham)

The Brazilian artist and pixação painter Cripta Djan is currently showing an exhibition entitled ‘In The Name Of Pixo’ at The Tramshed in Birmingham, UK. The history of graffiti is often told as a simple linear narrative with its singular root in the wall-writing of Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood and North Philadelphia in the late 1960s. However, this simplification ignores the multifaceted origins of the various strands of the global graffiti movement; these include the Old-English influenced Cholo graffiti from L.A.’s barrios, the Dishu ground calligraphy performed […]
