On March 21st, Geoff McFetridge will be opening a new solo at V1 Gallery, his second with the Copenhagen showspace after a successful stint there in 2011 (covered). Because the Los Angeles -based artist is a man with many talents, we as art fans are glad to see him back in the studio, resulting in some pretty sweet paintings like the one seen above that will be part of the show. He only recently completed work on the Oscar-nominated film Her, where he designed the interfaces for […]

After attending this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii and completing a large collaborative mural for the event, Andrew Schoultz headed to Austin, Texas for his next project. Juxtapoz & Converse have teamed up to bring the Los Angeles-based artist to SXSW where he painted another big wall, this time with a sweet tank embellishment. Take a look at more photos below… Photos via the artist’s Instagram. Discuss Andrew Schoultz here.
Currently until Tuesday, March 11th, Tiny Showcase will have two prints available for purchase individually or as a set from Josh Keyes (interviewed). Although the originals were painted for different shows, the two pieces seemed destined to end up together due to their synchronous imagery. You can now add both for your collection for $60 or separately for $35 each with $10 from each sale donated to the Ocean Conservancy. Discuss Josh Keyes here.
Tomorrow night, Anonymous Gallery in New York will present the first solo exhibition of artist Pryce Lee. Entitled Single Shot, this show consists of transformative works that focus on life, death and the human experience. The 15 “single shots” on display will provide the opportunity for attendees to be both viewer and viewed simultaneously, forcing objectivity and contemplation while becoming a part of the artist’s subject matter. Depicted through specific acts of gun violence, this work further explores how singular moments, for better or worse, alter an […]
As previously mentioned, Shepard Fairey (featured) is currently in his studio preparing for his upcoming exhibition The Insistent Image: Recurrent Motifs in the Art of Shepard Fairey and Jasper Johns opening at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art on May 22.

For his first major exhibition in his hometown of Charleston, S.C., the Los […]
On April 5th, the OHWOW Gallery in Los Angeles will be hosting new works from Daniel Arsham entitled Kick the Tires and Light the Fires. The American artist is known for his sculptural “relics” that take modern items and recreates it in such a way that makes it appear as it would if found in the future as part of an archeological dig as well as works based off himself that resemble the victims of Pompeii. Take a look at some more preview images below… Discuss Daniel Arsham here.
Last month, the Breeze Block Gallery in Portland hosted a two person show from Erin Murray & Tristram Lansdowne (interviewed) entitled Order of Operations. Although the two artists’ imagery are worlds apart, a common theme of appreciation for architectural forms runs throughout their work – Lansdowne with his unnatural blending of natural landscapes and structures (although not as evident in this body of work) and Murray with her intriguing renderings on shaped canvases. Take a look at more photos below… Discuss this show here. Discuss Tristram Lansdowne here. Discuss Erin Murray here.
Another collaboration that grabbed our attention during this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii was a long joint mural from Andrew Schoultz and Hannah Stouffer. The waves and kinetic imagery from Schoultz provided a nice contrast to the softer forest renderings and volcanic eruptions of Stouffer, providing an interesting continous landscape for the people who pass by in the industrial district of Kaka’ako. Take a look at some closer shots as well as in-progress pics below… Photos credit: saL. Discuss POW WOW here. Discuss Andrew Schoultz here.
