Openings: David Ellis – “Mola Salsa” @ New Image Art

A couple weeks back, multifaceted art dynamo David Ellis filled New Image Art with his new body of work Mola Salsa. Featuring a more figurative collection of paintings, the work also maintained hints of Ellis’ geometric patterns and linework. We’ll see if he develops this new direction more next month at the Joshua Liner Gallery booth for PULSE New York during Armory Week. More photos after the jump…

Preview: David Ellis – “Mola Salsa” @ New Image Art

This Saturday night, the versatile and multi-talented David Ellis brings a new body of work “Mola Salsa” to New Image Art. No word yet whether his popular “trash sound sculptures” or video work will be making their appearance at the West Hollywood gallery, but here are some preview images of some of the paintings for your enjoyment. It seems like his work has taken a more figurative turn.

Preview: “Wreck the Walls” @ Subliminal Projects

Viva La Revolucion

Preview: Viva La Revolucion @ MCASD

AM headed down to San Diego on Friday morning to catch the press preview of Viva La Revolucion at MCASD (check out our street coverage here). It was great to wander around the Jacobs Building and get a sneak peek of everything the artists have been working on indoors after seeing all the amazing pieces that have been popping up on the streets of the city. Pedro Alonzo, the exhibition’s curator, led a talk around the museum and spoke about the different artists and their work. Shepard Fairey, David Ellis, Stephan […]

Teaser: “Viva La Revolucion” @ MCASD

San Diego, hold on to your hats because the urban art movement is about to move into your neighborhood.

Openings: Barnstormers @ Joshua Liner Gallery

The beautiful weather and the promise of great art seemingly brought out all the five boroughs Thursday night for the opening of the Barnstormers show at Joshua Liner Gallery. The exhibition – which was so large that it overflowed Liner’s third floor space into an entire other gallery on the floor below – leaned toward presenting individual works from the diverse group of artists, instead of toward collaborative installations as expected. Of course, pieces by stars of the original scene such as David Ellis, Swoon, […]

Preview: The Barnstormers @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Preview images from the much anticipated Barnstormers show at Joshua Liner Gallery have started leaking out and from the looks of the individual pieces from Swoon, David Ellis, Kenji Hirata and others, the exhibition is not surprisingly going to be a stunner. But when all the amazing artists that make up the Barnstormers are together in one place, the total will undoubtedly be so much more than just the sum of the individual pieces. What exactly the end result will look like is anyone’s guess […]

Armory Week ’10: Scope New York

We attended the preview of Scope New York last Wednesday and visited the fair again on Saturday, and with the exception of stand-out booths by Anonymous, David B. Smith and newcomers Jackie Paper, found the fair to be somewhat disappointing overall. The show seemed small, not just relative to the enormous size of this year’s Armory Show, but compared with this year’s Scope Miami or last year’s Scope NY. And the overall selection and quality seemed to be down as well, with not a lot […]

Benefit: “Idea for the Here and Now” @ Fountain Fair

Christina Ray Gallery (formerly Glowlab) and Fountain Art Fair are behind an unique group exhibition to benefit Transformazium, an emerging collaborative arts center in Braddock, Pennsylvania. The show, called “Idea for the Here and Now,” will feature prints by David Ellis, Steve Powers, Jose Parla, Swoon and others based on the idea of “the transformation of resources into tangible social and economic benefits for small communities and the world at large.” The limited edition screenprints were all hand-pulled at the Braddock Screen Printing Shop, and […]
