Nuart ’13: Part III – Vhils

As part of our ongoing coverage (Part I & Part II) of this year’s Nuart Festival (see previous years), we now have some photos of a new piece from Vhils.

Studio Visit / Preview: Nicola Verlato – “Pagan Pop” @ Merry Karnowsky Gallery

On Saturday night, September 7th, the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles will welcome back Nicola Verlato and his surreal paintings for another showing (see 2012). The new work is collectively entitled Pagan Pop, a reference to his contemporary take on late medieval narrative painting and the theme of how Western society has continually attempted to suppress its pagan roots. The exhibition will feature three large scale pieces from Verlato, glimpses of which you can see in the studio visit below… Photo credit: ©Carlos Gonzalez. Discuss Nicola Verlato here.
