Upcoming: Eric Fortune – “A Life to Leave” @ Lebasse Projects (Culver City)

Coming up next month on the 14th, the Culver City location of the Lebasse Projects will be hosting a solo show from Eric Fortune (interviewed). Last we saw of the Ohio-based painter, it was the end of 2010 and he was showing at the same space alongside Nate Frizzell. The new body of work deals with characters in transition between the known and the unknown, all rendered with his time-consuming “glazing” technique infusing each piece with subtle details and luminous lighting. Discuss this show here. […]

The show included a few large scale paintings, including a tondo continuing his eye boggling Infinite Tapestry series. The centerpiece of the show was a sculpture installation filled with extra extraterrestrial creatures and landscapes that would seem to dwell […]

Streets: David Flores – “Basquiat” (Los Angeles)

Apart from the Cyrcle. crew painting their latest mural, David Flores also took the opportunity to paint his own mural at the Culver City building complex which houses mural work by Herakut and Andrew Hem. The Branded Arts sponsored project had Flores painting his signature style design on a big scale. Last time we saw Flores working on a wall, he took one of Phil Stern’s iconic images which featured James Dean. This time around Flores went a different route and created a rendering of […]

Art Platform ’11: First Look

Late Friday afternoon, AM stopped by the vernissage for Art Platform’s debut in Los Angeles. The new event, which looks to become the preeminent art fair in the LA area, is the sister fair to New York’s annual Armory Show. Although it did not attract as many blue-chip galleries as the Big Apple’s version, it was nevertheless an impressive start and we look forward to following the growth and expansion of the event in years to come. Standouts for us include a mermaid drawing from […]

Streets: Jeff Soto (Lyon) Part II

Last week, we brought you photos of the cat-inspired mural Jeff Soto (interviewed) painted while in France for the Les Enfants TERRIBLES exhibition. It looks like that wasn’t the last of the feline-inspired walls that Jeff endowed on the city of Lyon as he now sends us a second set of photos of this large Le Chat Terrible piece, one of the largest outdoor works he has done in recent memory. The industrious Riverside-based artist finished it in pretty much in one day after sketching it […]
