Openings: Barry McGee & Clare Rojas @ Bolinas Museum

This past Saturday marked the opening of Barry McGee and Clare Rojas’ exhibition “Leave It Alone” & “Together At Last” (respectively) at the Bolinas Museum. The quaint community in northern California landed a double-stack of works featuring both iconic artists. We last saw the dynamic duo showing together last spring at New Image Art and this time the latest exhibition was indeed museum-worthy. McGee created floor to ceiling installations showcasing everything from his trademark bottles to his diverse pattern paintings to surprising goodness such as […]

Streets: Vermin & Jago – Moon Street Mural

We were impressed by this recent collaborative mural on Moon Street in Bristol, put together by Mr Jago and Vermin when we saw these pictures of the wall coming together from Mike Dring of Art-El. The two artists had not met before the planned day of painting, but they seemed to hit things off with this well composed and cohesive piece, which blends their styles with great effect – just check out some of the 3D details they achieved. More flicks and a video after […]
