When we were passed this fantastic interview between our friend Thomas Dunlap and Know Hope, we couldnâ€™t resist sharing it with you. The conversation took place during Know Hopeâ€™s recent LA solo show at Carmichael Gallery, “the times wonâ€™t save you (this rain smells of memory)“ (covered) and provides some insight into the artist’s creative process and the symbolism in his work.

Luckily for us, all the action was caught on the time-lapse video above. Discuss Know Hope here.
Israeli street artist Know Hope’s Los Angeles solo debut “the times won’t save you (this rain smells of memory)” (previewed) opened to a packed house at the Carmichael Gallery. Patrons were in awe with his intricate gallery installation echoing the theme of the show, which was comprised of cardboard buildings, his signature characters, paper raindrops and fishing twine. Equally as impressive was Know Hope’s latest series of works, which featured a free-form poem of sorts, with a powerful coupling of words and images of his characters in [...]

His large mixed-media pieces just keep getting better and we were delightfully surprised to see that [...]

Know Hope’s show (previewed) at Ad Hoc Art opened last weekend in NY to a pretty good crowd.Â As with most of his shows, the centerpiece was an installation, vividly bringing to life the imagery of his art.Â His well-known grappling and intertwined characters were again the stars in this body of work that seemed to have a seafaring theme. See more pics after the jump.
