Previews: PULSE Los Angeles ’11 – Nate Frizzell @ LeBasse Projects

Continuing our coverage of the inaugural PULSE Los Angeles set to jump off this coming weekend, we now bring your some preview images from Nate Frizzell (interviewed). Whereas his last solo To Become Myself saw Nate exclusively flex his muscle with charcoal, a compelling first time departure for the young artist, he now returns to the oils paintings that got people really talking during his I Should Know Who I Am By Now around this time last year. After four consecutive sold out exhibitions with […]

Outdoor/Streets: “Street a.k.a. Museum” @ Portsmouth Museum of Art – New Hampshire

In yet another example of street art and graffiti’s acceptance and proliferation in fine art institutions across America, the Portsmouth Museum of Art hosts Street a.k.a.

The exhibition, which opened on May 11 and runs until Sept. 11 features familiar names: Bumblebee, Herakut (fresh off their beautification of Los Angeles), Shark Toof, Alexandros Vasmoulakis, and Andreas von Chrzanowski.

Openings: Nate Frizzell – “To Become Myself” @ LeBasse Projects (Chinatown)

Taking a cue from our primitive ancestors, Nate Frizzell (interviewed) went old school by employing man’s oldest writing utensil with his newest body of work. Often, simplicity is best, if not at least a nice change of pace from an artist’s modus operandi. Such was the case in Chinatown last night with To Become Myself (previewed), a series of charcoal works on paper that exhibited a softer side to the Los Angeles artist’s visual language. Marking Nate’s third consecutive sold-out show with LeBasse Projects, the […]

Preview / Video: Nate Frizzell – “To Become Myself” @ LeBasse Projects (Chinatown)

Granted the honor of inaugurating LeBasse Projects’ new Chinatown space with its first solo exhibition, Nate Frizzell (interviewed) will aim to kick things off in dramatic fashion with To Become Myself (teased), opening this Thursday, May 13th. Based around a series of charcoal drawings, the body of work will again serve as a major departure from the status quo, bravely mixing up technique in a manner similar to that of the landmark I Should Know Who I Am By Now (covered), which saw the Los […]

Openings: Nate Frizzell – “I Should Know Who I Am By Now” @ LeBasse Projects

One of the many art hot spots bestowed upon the LA area last night was the unearthing of Nate Frizzell’s (interviewed) newest body of work, I Should Know Who I Am By Now (previewed), at LeBasse Projects. Almost exactly a year ago, the Riverside artist introduced himself in a big way to the warm embraces of collectors at the Culver City gallery. The passing time has allowed the artist’s vision to breath and his technique to mature into the unique visual narrative currently on display. […]

Interviews / Preview: Nate Frizzell – “I Should Know Who I Am By Now” @ LeBasse Projects

One of the brightest stars to have risen out of the ever-evolving New Contemporary movement this year is without a doubt Nate Frizzell. A year ago this month, Nate first made waves with his debut solo at LeBasse Projects, Lost in the Thicket (covered). Now armed with arsenal of oil paints in place of acrylics, a refined vision and purpose as well as a new cast of characters and stories, Nate is set to unveil his newest body of richly rendered paintings, along with his […]

The show includes pieces created in the 19th century […]

Beyond Eden ‘10: Shark Toof – Installation @ LeBasse Projects

Shark Toof debuted his first ever solo show with Culver City’s LeBasse Projects at Beyond Eden this past weekend. The prolific street artist mounted a visual assault utilizing his array of signature imagery, including sharks, cigarette boxes, comics and monsters. Using materials such as wood, spray cans, boxes, found materials and books, the artist filled nearly the entire space with art work. One wall featuring giant panels of screen-printed swimming sharks over a collaged and painted background would have been even larger if not for […]
