Geometrically inclined Aakash Nihalani will be opening a new show at the Bose Pacia Gallery in New York on November 4th.

Teaser: TrustoCorp – “New Americana” @ Gallery 1988 (LA)

This Saturday night, October 23rd, street art conglomerate Trustocorp makes a debut appearance in Los Angeles at Gallery 1988. Get ready for a healthy dose of political satire highlighting the absurdity of modern American Culture entitled “New Americana” at the Melrose gallery. Although known mostly for the remixed street signs, if the last show in NY was any indication, the exhibition will be much more immersive than that.

Teaser: “Street/Studio 2.0” @ Irvine Contemporary

For street artists, location has always been as important, if not more so, than the artwork itself. The site informs the conception – and perception – of the work down to it’s very core.

With such street art legends as José Parlá, Shepard Fairey, SWOON, James Marshall (Dalek), David Ellis, Romon Yang (Rostarr) and Gaia, Street/Studio 2.0 will spotlight […]

French street art phenom Invader has trained his sights on his next target, quietly mobilizing a army of alien assassins poised to attack neighboring Italy with his first solo in over a year. Opening October 23rd at Wunderkammern, Roma 2010 & Other Curiosities will in part continue the artist’s self-ascribed “RubikCubism”, an inventive re-purposing of the definitive hand-held puzzle toy that first manifested itself during his tribute to classic album cover art in NYC (covered) and saw further rearrangements with last years UK solo (covered).
