Art Focus: Jessica Stewart

This week’s Art Focus is on Melbourne based Jessica Stewart. What particularly drew our attention initially were her melding of urban objects and nature, as well as her hazy and dreamy portraits rendered juxtaposed with plants and animals. “Using pencil, paint and pastel she draws ships, homes, animals among all other sorts of symbolic objects to represent a bond, a freedom or maybe an escape from their current situation.” For those looking to see her work in person, Fine Grime Gallery will be representing her […]

Streets: TWIST & AMAZE (Sydney)

After stopping off in Venice for the opening of his latest solo show, Barry McGee (aka TWIST) appears to have continued his world travels abroad by heading down to Australia with long time friend and cohort Josh Lazcano (aka AMAZE). In a nod to arguably their most iconic collaborative mural composition, last seen at the famed Houston & Bowery wall last summer, the THR (The Human Race) crew members went big and bold in the Central Business District of Sydney. The minimalism of the mural, with […]

Previews / Installations: Greg Lamarche – “I Can See For Miles” @ Known Gallery

In a decidedly busy summer, Greg Lamarche (interviewed) and his artwork were all over the place, from a full showing in Toronto alongside Dalek, as well as group shows in New York and San Francisco. Now, as summer formerly came to a close a couple weeks back, Lamarche keeps cutting and pasting for a show with Known Gallery. Opening this weekend alongside Eric Haze’s New Mathematics (teased), I Can See For Miles brings former graffiti writer SP ONE’s unique typographic and abstract paper collages to Los […]

Openings: José Parlá – “Character Gestures” @ OHWOW (Part II)

First we brought you the opening night action from Los Angeles where José Parlá presented his latest body of work at OHWOW gallery. Now as promised, we give you a more intimate look at the works from the series entitled Character Gestures. As previously mentioned, José created works that exemplified the dynamic range of his talents. From his classic paintings to newer mediums such as mono-transfers, bundles and “concrete” installations, this exhibition clearly demonstrates Mr. Parlá’s skills and dedication to evolution when it comes to his art […]

Openings: Tomokazu Matsuyama – “East Weets Mest” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Last week was the start of another art season in NYC, and Joshua Liner Gallery started it if off with a bang with East Weets Mest, the second full-gallery solo exhibition by Brooklyn-based, Japanese artist Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed). Being great admirers of Matsu’s work and having seen some of the pieces during our recent studio visit, our expectations for this show were high, and we were not at all let down. Matsu put together an exciting collection of paintings and sculptures, diverse yet cohesive, which […]

Releases: Aiko – “Lady Butterfly” Sculpture (Black)

If you remember, we previously reported on the limited edition and intricate Lady Butterfly sculpture (produced by Tomenosuke Sho-ten) from Aiko Nakagawa earlier this year. The initial silver colorway easily sold out on Valentine’s Day, but the newest black version (limited to 10 each) was released just hours ago 1.00pm (JST) on September 16th and retailed for $550 here. If you are too late to purchase this piece, don’t despair. This is only the second colorway in a planned five colorways so you still have […]

Streets: Phlegm – “calibrating the seeing device” (Croatia)

The pervasive Sheffield street artist Phlegm is at it again, this time in Croatia. After recently endowing the streets of London with a steampunk-inspired flying machine, he bestows the Balkans with the longest, most technologically superior seeing device ever. Brilliantly using the architectural details of the space, Phlegm transforms a security gate at the end of the wall into a entry hatch for his signature characters to gain access inside and calibrate the massive telescope. His monochromatic palette, free hand execution, and whimsical narrative has […]
