Haven’t heard from Gaia in while ever since hanging out a little at Art Basel Miami last year, but it looks like he’s participating in two shows in the next couple weeks. First up is a solo at Gallery Heist opening tomorrow night in SF (of which there are some preview pics after the jump). Then, on May 23rd, he’ll be part of the Axis Alley Project in Baltimore for which he put up this sick mural of his “Deny Him Three Times” image – it blends [...]
If we were privy to Banksy’s flight itinerary the last several months, this is what we might have seen: UK – Utah – UK -> LA -> SF -> Chicago -> Detroit -> Toronto -> Boston or some combination thereof (strange that he skipped NY). How do we know? Well, he leaves a trail of stencils (of course, we will never know for sure unless they are confirmed). Some of readers may have had Banksy overload ever since his documentary came out at Sundance, but [...]
NYC is rocking it yet again this weekend – the big Charming Baker popup show, ROA continues to kill it in Brooklyn, Scott Musgrove returns to LeVine and the Willoughby Windows Project returns to the desolate storefronts of Brooklyn… the Big Apple is just on fire this weekend. Not to be outdone, the UK has the big ‘Art From The New World‘ show from Corey Helford Gallery rocking things up north at the Bristol City Museum and Gallery. Too much good stuff for one person [...]
Spring is in full swing as the weather gets gorgeous for most. April brought another boatload of great art for us to load up on. Here’s another edition of Second Helpings to bring you some of our favorites of the month. Get served after the jump.
After a three year self-imposed hiatus from gallery shows (save a few group show contributions), Blaine Fontana made a comeback last weekend to the gallery scene with his solo show “The Golden Record” at Lebasse Projects in Los Angeles (our pics from the opening here). The exhibition looks to be a triumphal return for Fontana, and is based around humanity and its interface with the universe – the title referencing the information filled golden disks placed on board the Voyager II space craft launched in [...]
After throwing the best premiere party for his documentary in Los Angeles and gifting San Francisco with the most street pieces, Banksy appears to have been taking a whirlwind tour of other major North American cities. Either he’s been racking up some pretty major frequent fliers mileage or he has a crew out assisting him (or there are some copycats out there). The only way to know for sure if these are real is to keep checking the outdoors section on Banksy’s website for updates [...]
A fiftieth birthday party planned for Jean-Michel Basquiat if he were alive. A new interview with ABOVE. See ours here. Have you seen a pink ninja before? TMI? Banksy paints Kate Moss’ wall. (*edit – false story) Is it illegal to photograph street art? If so, we might be in trouble. Eames chairs as canvas. Welcome new blogs (Kathy Grayson, Os Gemeos, and David Stoupakis). Gen Art is dead. Oh, and so are the people that make those Koons dogs. An old painting lost in [...]
It looks like UK street artist EINE was over in Japan for a show at Gallery 503 recently. Apparently, he had a lot of time to throw up some pieces in the street, mainly due to getting stranded because of the recent volcanic eruption in Iceland. Eine ended up painting 22 shutters and walls, though it looks like he only used the English alphabet for his fans in Tokyo… Take a look at more images after the jump.
Apparently Banksy has been real busy in San Francisco as another five new stencils have been discovered (see previous six here). Combining business with pleasure, the stealthy street artist has hit up famous spots like the Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz. We can’t remember the last time Banksy has gifted one city with so many street pieces, so fans in the Bay Area are definitely the subject of some worldwide jealousy at the moment. All the images after the jump…
