Teaser: Dan Quintana – “Ethos Astray” @ Last Rites Gallery

Dan Quintana, whom we last saw show at Copro Gallery in January, is opening a new exhibition at the Last Rites Gallery in New York this weekend. The new body of work entitled “Ethos Astry” will be sure to include Quintana’s beautiful women, often masked in elaborate headdresses with a grotesque twist. Take a plunge with us into his fantasy world this Saturday, September 4th at the opening. Discuss Dan Quintana here. Discuss this show here.

New Banksy Videos

Along with the batch of photographs Banksy posted of his new work on his website the other day, he also released two videos. One is a dolphin ride for kids, but modified with netting and barrel with a crude oil leak with typical Banksy humor.  Also, if you look carefully at the video after the jump, you may be seeing Mr. B. himself in disguise heckling Prince Charles.

Highlights: Recommended Openings for Sept. 1st – Sept. 4th

The official launch of the fall art season is upon us and with it an amazing array of high profile shows are opening the world over this weekend. From big solo shows in Los Angeles from the likes of Sarah Joncas, Buff Monster, Dabs Myla, Nathan Ota, and Yumiko Kayukawa to big solo shows in San Francisco from Stanley Donwood and in the UK from Guy Denning. All that and I didn’t even mention Kent Williams’ big solo in NM and Brendan Monroe’s show in […]

Preview: Evah Fan – “Come What May” @ Galerie L.J.

Yesterday, we brought you a preview of Brendan Monroe’s (interviewed) body of work for a Paris in a joint exhibit with Evah Fan. Today, we can give you a glimpse of Evah’s work as well ahead of the opening this Saturday night at Galerie L.J. Looking through some of the preview images from this show, what strikes us is how unpredictable her narrative is, with unexpected surprises in each piece that lead us to think “what is going on here?” At the same time, we […]

Streets: Blu in Madrid

Blu’s amazing largescale works are now expected to be amazing whenever we hear of something new from the Italian street artist. What we really need now is a big solo show for him to see how his works translate in the gallery setting – hopefully we’ll get to see something like that from him soon. Here is his latest piece (in Madrid), again taking aim of one of his favorite targets – the corporate fat cats. A closer look after the jump…

Streets: Sam3 & Liqen Collab in Spain

We had just been introduced to Liqen and one of his collaborations recently and here we already see him creating another joint mural, this time with Spanish compatriot Sam3. This piece in Pontevedra, entitled Sirena II, has one of Liqen’s fanciful monochromatic white works taking a little swim with clusters of Sam3’s signature shadow people. See the whole mural and some detailed shots after the jump…

Preview: Nathan Ota – “An Unforeseen Homecoming” @ La Luz de Jesus

A show we mentioned earlier this month is finally opening this Friday at La Luz de Jesus. The forests will come alive with Nathan Ota’s “An Unforseen Homecoming” as his hybrid wood creatures take over the walls at the LA gallery. More preview images after the jump…

Releases: Michael Hussar – “White Devil” Miniprint

Aptly referred to as a “deal with the devil”, our friends at Baby Tattoo have tipped us off to a new miniprint from Michael Hussar. Priced only at $10, this 4″ x 6″ print entitled “White Devil”, is a promotional print for his forthcoming book White. Also look for Hussar in the fast approaching Baby Tattooville this year. More views of the print (available here) after the jump…

Barry McGee Mural on Houston & Bowery Completed

As quickly as it started just after midnight of Monday morning, it ended. Barry McGee (aka Twist) and his friend/assistant Josh Lazcano (aka Amaze) worked throughout the night into the wee hours of the morning (definitely outlasting AM into the am…) to complete an amazing mural that will hopefully last long enough for the people of New York to enjoy. We went back to the spot to enjoy the fruits of Barry & Josh’s Labor basking in daylight on the iconic corner of Houston & Bowery. […]

Futura & X-Ghetto 666 for Chill.and.Go 2 Exhibition

Apparently, Futura hasn’t gotten his fill of collaborations after an epic piece in New York with Os Gemeos early this month. He recently partnered up with local masked artist X-Ghetto 666 (yes, that’s his name) in Mexico to customized a blacked out bus for the Chill.and.Go 2, a big cycling event. Take a look at more pics of the results of his can control and technique after the jump…
