On December 13th, Soey Milk will be presenting a new body of work at the Corey Helford Gallery featuring oil on canvas as well as pencil and watercolor on paper works. Entitled SINAVRO, which is a pure Korean word translated loosely to mean “to progress slowly, almost imperceptibly,” the name of the show nicely describes the growth of the young artist’s imagery and technique. Take a look at another image below… Discuss Soey Milk here.
Back in Fall, David Choe (featured) announced the release of his latest book Snowman Monkey BBQ. This 266 page hard cover compiles numerous artwork including his gorgeous signature watercolors. Mr. Choe recently held a signing with the good folks at The Hundreds to reward his New York fans. Hundreds of people braved the cold weather to geek out with the Los Angeles-based artist for a little face time and they were definitely rewarded as he arrived in costume and took time to speak to each attendee and draw in their […]
Prior to traveling down to Basel Week Miami, Ron English (featured) unveiled a unique installation at the Tribeca Grand Hotel. Entitled Evolutionary Alternatives, this showcase curated by Natalie Kates Projects focused on Ron’s camouflage animal motif and brought it to life in the main concourse of the hotel with life sized sculptures of the deers painted to blend in with the foliage in the lobby. It was a great take on nature’s evolutionary defense mechanism cross pollinated with visual design. A special Dinogrenade edition was also released at the event […]
While attending this year’s Basel Week Miami, we also walked by a new mural painted by The London Police in the Wynwood district. The crisp linework and iconic LADS characters instantly marked the piece as painted by the famous duo and is a welcome addition to this hotbed of street art activity in Miami. Take a look at more detailed shots of the wall in the photos below… See all our coverage of Basel Week Miami here. Discuss The London Police here.

This Saturday night (December 13th) in Los Angeles at 80 Forty Gallery, Lola will be opening the first solo we have seen from her since 2012 (covered). The new body of work entitled The Younger sounds to be deeply personal for the artist as it explores her childhood memories and documents her mental, physical, and spiritual journey through art and life. Fans will be interested to know that she has added oil painting to her repertoire and also housed each piece in antique, vintage, or hand built […]
Another wall that caught our eyes while around Wynwood Walls during Basel Week Miami was a joint effort from Faith47 and Alexis Diaz, a continuation of the The Art of Collaboration program this year (also see Shep x Cleon Peterson). The mural was stunning in person, mixing South Africa-based Faith47’s female portraiture entwined with the darker illustrative style of the Puerto Rican Diaz. Here are some shots of him putting the finishing touches on the piece as well as a look at the entire image. Full image of the wall via […]
We just received these images from Idem Studio in Paris showing Ludo (interviewed) adding final touches to his upcoming lithograph (edition of 99), set to be released Thursday, 11th of December with PrintThemAll studio. The title is 344, and is one of the butterflies he introduced at his recent London solo at Lazarides (covered). With the title of the recent show, Chaos Theory, in mind, referring to the global situation and human influence on nature & environment, the French artist picked an image representing the butterfly effect. Using his signature black and […]
