Opened since the 9th of May, the show includes a new series of van Minnen’s oils on canvas and panel, as well as entire new series of monotype unique works. The work of the Brooklyn-based artist is influenced by the old masters and their familiar techniques and styles. After mastering the traditional technique of oil painting, matching […]
Howard Griffin Gallery recently continued its busy 2014 schedule by opening a solo show by Pablo Delgado. The Mexico-born artist is a well known figure in the London street art scene due to the recognizable miniature works that he’s been creating around the city for years. For this exhibition entitled Even Less, he tried to present his continuous idea of saying a lot by showing very little. While bringing these tiny pieces into the gallery space doesn’t sound like a difficult task, it was exactly this […]

Last week, we brought you a first look at some of the amazing works of art at this year’s Frieze New York. But an art fair such as Frieze contains too many notable pieces—such as Danh Vo’s installation Massive Black Hole in the Dark Heart of Our Milky Way (pictured above)—to be shown in just one post. So, we’ve returned with part 2, which includes images of works by Yayoi Kusama, Ed Ruscha, George Condo, Jonas Wood and Jeff Elrod, among many others. Discuss Frieze […]
As it had been 12 years since Ai Yamaguchi’s last solo exhibition in New York City, the level of expectation and excitement for her return was understandably high. Even so, Shinchishirin at the Joshua Liner Gallery, which opened May 8th, far exceeds those high expectations, and is arguably one of the artist’s finest bodies of work to date. The imagery in the show is instantly recognizable as Yamaguchi, with her characteristic Edo-era courtesans depicted in a style which is at once based in traditional Japanese […]

It’s time for another edition of our Streets World Roundup feature. First up is a new High Line billboard featuring the work of Ed Ruscha.

It looks like the Lazarides Gallery recently stopped by Conor Harrington’s (interviewed) studio to check in on the UK-based painter. What they saw was some amazing new works in progress for his upcoming debut show in New York later this year, presumably a pop up put on by the London-based gallery. Entitled Eat and Delete, the exhibition will include 10-12 large canvases that continues where the Irish artist’s Dead Meat show in London (covered) left off. Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Conor Harrington here.
Over the weekend, the Merry Karnowsky Gallery unveiled the latest solo show, titled Good Knight, by artist Greg “Craola” Simkins (featured). Just as his previous show a year ago (covered), this new body of work from the gifted painter brought in a massive crowd (including both fans and established artists like Laurie Lipton, Saber & Dabs Myla) eager to see his latest display of surreal and fantastical imagery. It’s safe to say that his work keeps getting better as time progresses with this exhibition displaying a variety of large and small […]
UK-based artist Mobstr (interviewed) recently launched his solo exhibition Sex, Drugs & Painting Walls Canvases at The Old Truman Brewery in London. Following his public works (covered here), the minimalistic street artist has created black and white canvases with witty text messages, flyers to support a ‘save the trees’ campaign, and a series of installations from dummy spray painters to the re-creation of the artist at work surrounded by a sea of draft messages.
