More Christmas greetings come from street miniature photographer Slinkachu. This piece in London entitled Maz + Joe is a twist on the usual story this time of year with Mary riding something other than a Donkey, but it looks like all the places to sleep are still full. Hopefully, they’ll be able to find a manger to keep warm and deliver their bundle of joy. Another view after the jump…
Just like for Halloween, Ashley Wood took the time to create something for his fans. The giant in the comic book world is supposed to be exhibiting along with frequent collaborator and one of AM’s favorites Jeremy Geddes (interviewed) at Jonathan LeVine in 2012. But until then, take a look at the current piece on his easel after the jump from his frequently updated blog.
Check out this new Christmas themed painting Melissa Haslam’s (featured) did for the launch of the Curvy 2010 book in Sydney. The piece will be on display at The Galeries along with work from Courtney Brims, Noferin, Fafi, Amandine Urruty, Genevieve Gauckler, Rilla Alexander, Irina Dakeva and Kaitlin Beckett until January 8th. Take a look at a process video of this piece after the jump from Melissa’s sister Suzie.
Looks like Mr. Kaikai Kiki would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays with this picture posed next to “Santa DOB”. Wouldn’t Murakami look kinda like a Japanese Santa Claus if his hairs were whiter? Then we would all get the gifts we always wanted… Discuss Takashi Murakami here.
If you follow Gary Baseman (interviewed) work like we do, you’ll know that he takes his Toby figure with him wherever he goes as he travels the world. You can get a glimpse of some of the action in this album on his facebook and you can also see the dated and labeled Toby’s in our studio visit here. For the holidays, Toby posed next to the “Santa Davids” at Youngwood Court in LA. Discuss Gary Baseman here.
What a fitting photo with the snow, church, and imagery courtesy of French stencil specialist C215, who recently showed at Galerie Itinerrance (covered). This piece is a “sacred heart” variation on a piece we featured last year at this time. Another view after the jump…
Marilyn Minter, who we just saw at the opening of the Youtube Biennial at the Guggenheim where she was a judge, recently released a 58 x 48 inch vinyl diecut Christmas tree wall-sticker. The Merry Merry Tree kit features some of Minter’s own eclectic collection of shiny ornaments with the topping star using some of her more classic photo-imagery (seen in detail after the jump). The tree and star are priced at $125 or only the star for $10 all available here with some of […]
We’ll start off our series of Christmas greetings this year with this offering from Ron English (featured). Take a look at this “Camo Deer” that we first saw for the Art From The New World group show, then realized in sculptural form at the Status Factory show in NY, and more recently at his Wynwood Walls mural in Miami. The snow looks like a natural setting for it although perhaps Ron needs to add some camouflage more suited to the winter environment. Discuss Ron English […]
Earlier this month at the Eleanor Harwood Gallery in San Francisco, Keven E. Taylor put on a show within a show in a sense as he rendered various animals, birds, and fish on display inside his paintings at what looks to be a museum. Disclocated examines concepts of isolation, exhibition and preservation with the subjects removed from their natural state and frozen in a moment of time and forces the viewer to consider if this is the future of our companions on this earth.

A couple weeks ago, Marion Peck along with husband Mark Ryden hosted a book signing for Peck’s first fine art monograph, Animal Love Summer, at Sloan Fine Art in New York. This coincided with her recently opened and current show What You Are, So Once Were We which featured new paintings (large and small) and sculptural pieces. What really drew us in though were the portrait pieces styled after vintage photographs, each with a story to tell. Take a look at more photos after the […]
