We’ve been following Brooklyn based painter Eric White’s (interviewed) progress as he was steadily working his brush magic over recent months in anticipation of his double solo show in Copenhagen, currently sharing the stage with Daniel Davidson entitled Magic Kingdom at Gallery Poulsen in Denmark. Eric has long been a man of transcendence, and this latest batch of work is certainly a representation of this. If you have the opportunity to attend the show in Copenhagen then we sternly suggest you make a night of [...]

Enchanted as we were by David Shrigley’s retrospective last year in London (covered here & here), we were excited to see something new from him for his solo at that opened last week at the Anton Kern Gallery in New York. Entitled Signs, the paintings and sculptural works featured the UK-artist’s well-known witticisms and playful nature. The exhibition runs through February 19th so head over if you are in town. Discuss David Shrigley here.
Over the weekend, the Jonathan LeVine Gallery hosted all new work from Aakash Nihalani alongside the solo from Haroshi (covered). Nihalani’s innovative geometric forms, collectively entitled Portal, featured a playful nature throughout the compositions, yet at the same time exhibited a strong sense of structure. In the NY-based artist’s words – “I try to create a new visual space within the physical confines of any piece I work on, through the illusion of three-dimensional imagery contained on a two-dimensional plane. When looking at the work—orientation shifts, shapes merge, direction inverts, foreground [...]
Tomorrow night (January 17th), the National Arts Club in New York will be opening their Nocturnes: Romancing the Night group exhibition.

For this show, the NAC has brought together a group of mid-career and emerging artists like Odd Nerdrum, Steven Assael, Marshall Arisman, Bo Bartlett, Jefferson Haman, Alexandra Pacula, Richard Scott Young, Alexander Roloff, Martin Wittfooth (below), and Jason Yarmosky (above) – who [...]

Currently showing the Paris branch of Galerie Paris-Beijing is Liu Bolin’s Hiding In The City featuring new examples of the Chinese artist’s signature technique of painting himself to blend in with the background. Last time we spent time with the “Invisible Man” was while he was in New York working on a complex collab (here & here) with French artist JR as well as unveiling a solo show at Eli Klein (covered) last year so it’s nice to see some new work. You should too if you are in Paris before the show closes [...]
