Coming up in October of this year, Martin Wittfooth (interviewed) will be opening a solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York. The last showing we attended in NY for the locally-based artist was back in 2011 (covered), so we are anxious to see what he has cooked up for an encore. From this glimpse he recently shared with his fans, it will certainly be a special show. Discuss Martin Wittfooth here.]]>

Streets: Seth Globepainter (China) http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/streets-seth-globepainter-china-2/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/streets-seth-globepainter-china-2/#comments Tue, 26 May 2015 23:04:39 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=276878 china01

Shortly after the opening of his sold out solo show in Paris (covered), Seth Globepainter took off on another trip to the Far East. Similar to his last trip to China in December 2014 (covered), the French artist painted a series of works featuring his signature children characters in different settings and environments, often collaborating with local artists. The first part of the trip included a mural project for the Beijing Opera. This was painted at the Power Station of Art, the biggest contemporary art institution in Shanghai, and it was done in collaboration with calligrapher Hong He Ping. The image shows two kids playing with traditional Chinese masks that are often part of performances at the Beijing Opera. The second phase of his trip included some 10 walls that he painted in support of the local charity march in Fengjing, a rural place one hour out of Shanghai. One of the pieces was done in collaboration with painter Cao Xiu Wen and her assistants - a colorful landscape wrapping around a sleeping girl. The other works were scattered around the area, covering old houses, dam gates, market stalls, gates, etc. Most of the images are focused on the issues of rural life, the migration to the cities, the traditional life and the questionable future of these parts. Currently Seth is back in Paris where he is working on his first limited edition lithograph that will be released soon with PrintThemAll.com, and we were told it will feature one of the images from this trip.

Openings: Travis Louie & Lauren Marx – “Archive of Lost Species” & “American Wilderness” @ Roq la Rue http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/openings-travis-louie-lauren-marx-archive-of-lost-species-american-wilderness-roq-la-rue/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/openings-travis-louie-lauren-marx-archive-of-lost-species-american-wilderness-roq-la-rue/#comments Tue, 26 May 2015 11:00:29 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=276697 Louie & Marx-55

Earlier this month, Roq la Rue welcomed back Travis Louie for his Archive of Lost Species solo show. Louie's finely rendered acrylic paintings are once again on display, with his usual recipe of the odd and imaginary. Oscar Pennington and his travels take center stage as he documents strange and wild creatures found around the world. The stories don't stop with the brush though, as the pieces are accompanied with a short story, and Pennington's Fish Frog of Burma even includes a diagram detailing the amphibious creature. In her Roq la Rue debut, Lauren Marx's solo show American Wilderness explores the circle of life in fine detail. A variety of mediums are used to render the exquisite works. Flowers and fungi burst from the decomposed prey, while the predators devour and tear flesh across the paper. Gruesome in many instances, one can't help but see the beauty as nature reclaims the deceased. Discuss Travis Louie here.]]>

Last week in Downtown Los Angeles, Yoskay Yamamoto (interviewed) completed a new installation for the Unispace office. Curated by Branded Arts as part of the DesignHive DTLA event, the mural and hanging sculptures from the locally-based artist played with the idea of a technology cloud with his raindrop sculptures representing data coming down from the cloud and back to the earth.

Openings: Greg “Craola” Simkins – “Where Am I” @ KP Projects // MKG http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/openings-greg-craola-simkins-where-am-i-kp-projects-mkg/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/openings-greg-craola-simkins-where-am-i-kp-projects-mkg/#comments Tue, 26 May 2015 00:18:02 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=276753 birdman-craola-whoami-12

Over the holiday weekend, those who found time to attend Greg Simkins’ new solo at KP Projects // MKG in Los Angeles were transported by the artist's boundless imagination into his surreal landscapes filled with fantastical creatures and mutations. Where Am I was a new body of work that included large scale paintings, smaller gems, as well as drawings from the locally based artist. With Craola knight characters and other familiar imagery running throughout the narratives as well as a throwback color palette, long time fans were filled with a sense of nostalgia, yet excited but the further refinement of his technique and eye for perfect compositions.

Previews: Parra – “Salut” @ Alice Gallery http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/previews-parra-salut-alice-gallery/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/previews-parra-salut-alice-gallery/#comments Mon, 25 May 2015 16:31:00 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=276743 Salutparra

Dutch artist, designer and illustrator, Parra, will be opening his first solo show in Belgium on the 28th of May at Alice gallery in Brussels. Salut will be his first show since the opening of his 10 year retrospective show at Kunsthal Rotterdam. Over the years, Parra managed to apply his aesthetic in numerous different mediums, from paintings, sculpture, toy design, video, footwear, graphic, fashion, to skateboards, creating a recognizable trademark with his distinctive visual language. Established as an artist worldwide, his clear and stylish works found their ways to numerous art collections as well as institutions such as SFMOMA. For his Belgian debut, the Amsterdam-based artist created a new series of paintings and prints exclusively for this show. Rendered in a limited color palette with some new tones being introduced and smooth clear lines, his signature hybrid characters are getting involved in a new round of absurd, often sexual mischief. Discuss Parra here.]]>

Shortly after opening his successful solo show in LA (covered), Aryz visited Detroit where he painted a new mural. Invited over by the Library Street Collective, the recently finished wall from the Spanish artist was for their Public Matter series. For this piece, Aryz picked his figurative, portraiture style of works and painted this unique sequenced piece. In a similar aesthetic as some of the paintings from his gallery show, this mural is his way of applying painterly skills on a massive scale, which he executed quite nicely. By repeating the character, he achieved an interesting visual effect while embracing the imperfections of hand painted work. Seemingly identical, each of the repeating characters has slightly different details which makes the piece very interesting to analyze. Photo credit: Sal Rodriguez Discuss Aryz here.]]>

Openings: Herakut + aptART – “Displaced Thoughts” @ Urban Nation HQ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/openings-herakut-aptart-displaced-thoughts-urban-nation-hq/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/05/openings-herakut-aptart-displaced-thoughts-urban-nation-hq/#comments Sun, 24 May 2015 19:08:20 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=276482 Herakut-show-20

On Saturday, May 16th, Herakut and aptART opened an exclusive show at the studio and work space of Urban Nation in Berlin, presenting a collection of paintings, photographs and installations created both by German art duo and individuals & organizations across the Middle East, Europe and Africa. Displaced Thoughts is a show that was hugely influenced by Herakut's visit to a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan in March last year. The fact that an estimated 51.2 million people were forcibly displaced due to persecution, conflict, generalized violence, or human rights violations, influenced the artists to use their reputation to raise the awareness about this issue. The trend of globalization caused a massive clash of cultures and diverse religious beliefs, which resulted in terrorism and fear. The idea of this project is to overcome these differences and obstacles and provide people a chance to express and exchange ideas. "The exhibition explores the placement of resources, intentions and perspectives from individuals as well as international media, aid agencies and governments," seen through the eyes of German artists as well people directly affected by this situation. Presented in a raw, workshop-like form, the artworks are being displayed all over the space, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs and installations. This emotive and meaningful show will stay open to the public for viewing through May 30th, 2015. Photo credit: Max Seqret.]]>
