Openings: Damon Soule – “Modus Alone” @ Thinkspace

Last Friday night saw the opening of Damon Soule’s solo show in Silverlake at Thinkspace Gallery. For our readers, it was also brought the glimpses from our preview to fruition with the completion of the Sleipnir sculpture installation as well as many multi-colored paintings from the artist. Take a look at all of pics of “Modus Alone” after the jump…

Preview / Setup: Damon Soule – “Modus Alone” @ Thinkspace

Last we saw Damon Soule, he was participating in a group show at Josh Liner’s and collaborating with Oliver Vernon and Mars-1. It’s about time we get to see a larger body of work of abstract yet organic paintings from this San Francisco-based artist. “Modus Alone” opens tomorrow night, February 12th along with the “Fresh” group show at Thinkspace Gallery. We suggest you stop by for some great artwork as well as what sounds be a cool front-room install from Soule that will feature a […]

Installation / Preview: The Faile & Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade @ Lazarides

Lazarides seems to be kicking off 2010 in style with not one, but two shows featuring Faile (see our recent studio visit here) opening in London this week. We gave you some news on the shows a little while back, and we’ve been counting the days in the run up to this week. Greek Street – the old location of the gallery, and now commonly known as the Lazarides shop – will be hosting ‘”The Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade”, where Faile are teaming up […]

Video: David Ellis “Musical Trash” Installation

David Ellis must be one of the most versatile artists out there with his multifaceted approach to art. You may remember his work as a street artist in the impressive “graffiti-animation” video he did with Blu at the Fame Festival last year. Or perhaps you enjoyed his gallery work for New Image Art last summer? What stands out most for us recently though was the the huge trash sound installation we experienced that he created for the Anonymous Gallery booth at the SCOPE art fair […]

Bumblebee Installation @ Thinkspace

If you remember, AM last hung out with Bumblebee last year, as he placed one of his signature phonebooth installations on the streets of LA. Well, he’s taken it a step further with this pretty cool installation in the front alcove of Thinkspace for the “A Cry For Help” show (covered). Take a look at some more additional photos after the jump…

Openings: “A Cry for Help” @ Thinkspace

A couple weeks ago, Thinkspace hosted “A Cry For Help,” a show that donated part of the proceeds to support Born Free USA & the Animal Protection Institute. Featuring a long list of great artists like Josie Morway (seen above), the show was partially curated by our friend Amanda aka Commandax from Erratic Phenomena. We must say after seeing the show in person that there were many unusually strong works from most of the artists that are not always seen in group shows, so definitely check […]

Installation: Mike Shine @ SFMoMA

Following our studio visit with Mike Shine last week (here), AM headed down to San Francisco to check out the fruits of his recent labors for SFMoMA‘s 75th Anniversary. Much as flotsam will accumulate in the ocean, creating a massive and no longer disjointed whole, the Mike Shine Show was part Fastelavn carnival, part three penny opera and part interactive installation. With carnival games and creepy clowns, Shine’s latest experience successfully brought back the fun and wonder of art to both parents and children alike, […]

Setup: Mark Jenkins – “Meaning is Overrated” & Aakash Nihalani – “On & Off (Often On)” @ Carmichael Gallery

It’s always interesting to see how street artists adapt their art to fit into a gallery setting, especially when they are so non-conventional (even for street art) like Mark Jenkins and Aakash Nihalani.  The duo will bring their “urban interventions” indoors tomorrow night at the Carmichael Gallery – Jenkins with “Meaning is Overrated” and Nihalani with “On & Off (Often On).” Take a look at more pics of the artists setting up after the jump…

Installation: Barry McGee @ SFMOMA 75th Anniversary Exhibiton

We recently took you to Mike Shine’s studio where he was getting ready for this weekend’s show at SFMOMA, but he’s not the only artist who was working on an exhibition there. Barry McGee was also installing some works in preparation for the 75th anniversary show at SFMOMA, where they have championed Mission School artists like Mr. Twist over the years.  Other artists featured include Bruce Conner, Jay DeFeo, Frida Kahlo, Jeff Koons, Sherrie Levine, Mike Mandel, Larry Sultan, Jackson Pollock, Leslie Shows and more. […]

Teaser: Mike Shine @ SF MoMA

Following his recent recreations of his historic Art Shack at Art Basel Miami and the Museum of Craft and Folk Art earlier this year, Mike Shine starts off 2010 proper with yet another installation, this time at the prestigious SF MoMA.  Debuting on the eve of their 75th Anniversary Show, the “Mike Shine Show” will run from January 16th to the 17th.  Mike recently sent us a couple photos of the mural he’s working on, see the second process pic after the jump.
