Openings: “Street Art Saved My Life” @ C.A.V.E. Gallery

Last Friday, the C.A.V.E. Gallery and Brooklyn Street Art in collaboration with Thinkspace presented an exhibit titled 39 Stories: Street Art Saved My Life. The exhibit featured 39 different artists including the likes of Anthony Lister, Futura, Judith Supine, Know Hope, Faile, and Swoon to many other names familiar to AM readers. The show was meant to display the current street art scene that’s taking place across New York and the surrounding areas. Although not all artists were born in that region, all of them […]

Culver City Artwalk ’10: “Picks of the Harvest” @ Thinkspace

On right now at the Culver City Arts District is their annual Artwalk. After bringing you a look at what LeBasse Projects and Carmichael Gallery had to offer, we now turn our eye on another great gallery – Thinkspace. Heading their show is master manipulator of pop culture and satirist, David MacDowell. You can’t help but smile when you see the skill in which David takes familiar elements and remixes them into a clever and unexpected composition – like Golem heading over to “Booger King” […]

Preview / Setup: Armsrock & Imminent Disaster – “Refuge” @ Thinkspace Gallery

Opening tonight at Thinkspace alongside Tran Nguyen will be a joint show from Armsrock (interviewed) and Imminent Disaster entitled “Refuge”. Slated as the last show before the gallery moves into their Culver City location, it looks like the two artists are taking this opportunity to put in some massive immersive installs. Inspired by “tent cities,” temporary places of living for those who have no where else to go, the show is an allegory that alludes to the fact that we all are stuck on a […]

Streets: Imminent Disaster

We saw this image of an Imminent Disaster piece in progress today on Vandalog and were struck again by the complexity of her work and paper cutting skills. We first saw the intricacy of her work in person at the “Streets of Brooklyn” show in January and more recently at her dual show with Gaia at Ad Hoc Art, but nothing quite highlights the ephemerality of street art like seeing her delicate and time-consuming cutouts pasted on a decaying wall. Looking forward to her two-person […]

Openings: Gaia & Imminent Disaster @ Ad Hoc Art

Last Friday, Ad Hoc Art had a great two-person solo show with Gaia and Imminent Disaster (previewed). The hippest of the Williamsburg crowd made their way out to see a great showing by these two street artists we recently saw in D.C. at the “Street/Studio” experience. For the show, Gaia brought the streets to the gallery with a “outdoor” installation to complement each of his works while Imminent Disaster flexed her muscles by showing off her intricate hand-cut stencils and thought-provoking imagery. All the photos from the opening […]

Openings: “Street/Studio” Experience @ Irvine Contemporary

Washington, D.C. got hit with a taste of urban art this past weekend thanks to the Irvine Contemporary, who held a group show and street/studio experience that featured artists: Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Dalek, Gaia, Imminent Disaster, Oliver Vernon, EVOL and Pisa 73. AM got to tag along as these urban artists got together to create a show that was not only inside the gallery, but also along the back walls and alleys of some prime D.C. real estate. From the moment daybreak started on Thursday, EVOL, Pisa […]

Openings: “Mood Swings” @ Carmichael Gallery

Opening alongside Know Hope (covered) at Carmichael Gallery was “Mood Swings,” a group show showcasing the work of seven urban artists: Asbestos, Bumblebee, Cena7, Fefe Talavera, Imminent Disaster, Labrona and Oddzoo. The show, which runs through July 2nd, presents a mixture of up-and-coming and established artists from varying backgrounds, giving patrons an opportunity to enjoy a diverse sampling of the genre. From the vibrant watercolor and ink pieces of Cena7, to the beautiful potraiture on found objects from Asbestos, or the gentle reminder from Bumblebee […]

Preview: Street Crush @ AlphaBeta

Love, sex, sensuality, and the grittiness of the street are reverberating all over AlphaBeta tonight as Brooklyn Street Art prepares for their group show, “Street Crush,” opening tomorrow Friday, February 13th.

Openings: Brooklyn Block Party @ Ad Hoc Gallery

The “Brooklyn Block Party” opened last Friday at Ad Hoc Art with a healthy lineup featuring C. Damage Elbowtoe, David Ellis, Gaia, Mike Houston, Imminent Disaster, Martin Mazorra, Dennis McNett, Richard Mock, Judith Supine, and Swoon.  The exhibition was an interesting change of pace for each artist as the show dictated they include hand cut blocks along with prints pulled from each block.  The theme of the show was executed nicely by all artists involved and really helped pull their diverse styles together into a […]
