Openings: Doze Green – “Out of Knowhere” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

A couple weeks ago, Doze Green presented a series new works at Jonathan LeVine Gallery entitled Out of Knowhere, his fifth showing with the Chelsea showspace. Along with new canvas paintings featuring his fusion of abstraction and cubism, the New York-born and California-based artist included a selection of monochromatic drawings on paper that represent his friends and mentors, people from NY street culture who influenced his life’s path greatly. Take a look at more photos form the opening below… Photo credit: Joe Russo for Arrested Motion. Discuss […]

Openings: “Art Truancy – Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

The year was 1994, Pulp Fiction was ruling the box office, The Beastie Boys were blasting Sabotage and a group of artists out in sunny California were brainstorming on how to start a Kustom Kulture magazine, that (unbeknownst to them) would eventually go on to be the most widely distributed and influential art magazine in the world. Famed painter Robert Williams (originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico) was riding a California wave, while collaborator, Fausto Vitello, was ripping with his Thrasher Magazine success, and with some key […]

Each piece of […]

Update: Space//Form Group Exhibition @ Breeze Block Gallery

One of the most interesting things about curating a group exhibition of over 100 artists is getting to see behind the scenes as the artists develop their work for the show (Chloe Early seen above). Updates come constantly as the participants share their excitement about creating work for the show, and getting to see  some of the creative process that goes into the work is always a pleasure. Space//Form opens in just a couple of weeks time now in Portland at Breeze Block Gallery and here […]

Videos: Mars-1 & Doze Green Collaboration

These sorts of artistic collaborations always interest us here at AM, especially where we can see it happen in person like the Art Jams at Baby Tattooville (2008, 2009, 2010). Mars-1 (featured) is certainly not new working synergistically with other artists (Mars-1 x Oliver Vernon x Damon Soule), and the results of painting with Doze Green is no less spectacular. Take a look at the footage above as each express their thoughts behind the project. Hearing Doze talk about his inspirations – “renaissance paintings and […]
