Earlier this month, the OHWOW Gallery opened a new solo show from Torey Thornton, his debut showing in Los Angeles. Entitled Some Narrow Sleeping, the new exhibition presents mixed media works that play with manipulations of scale and perspective, somewhat of a continuation of the body of work seen in France recently (covered). Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Torey Thornton here.
Over the weekend, AM headed out to Los Angeles to check out a solo from D*Face (interviewed) at a popup location in West Hollywood (315 S. Robertson Blvd). Greeted by an installation featuring a giant D*Dog sculpture crushing a police cruiser with full on smoke, fans were hyped up to enter the gallery space to take in a new body work from the British street artist. Inside, attendees were treated to portraits of actors, celebrities, and musicians, remixed in D’s signature aesthetic as well as his recognizable Lichtenstein-influenced […]
The last time we saw a solo show from the Clayton Brothers in Los Angeles (covered), it was 2011. Showing through this weekend, the exhibition at the Mark Moore Gallery gives Angelino fans of the talented and respected artists another chance to check out the new body of work featuring mixed-media drawings, assemblage, photography, video, and installations. Open to the Public draws its inspiration and eclectic setup from the Sun Thrift Store in Sunland, a famous local “thrifting mecca” and includes not just the brothers’ paintings but […]
Those who are familiar with Chet Zar’s (interviewed) beautifully grotesque imagery would not be surprised if they heard Halloween was one of his favorite holidays. This year, Copro Gallery in Los Angeles will be celebrating in fashion with a vintage costume party on October 18th along with the opening of a new solo show from the locally-based artist entitled All Hallow’s Eve. As you can see from the preview shots, he has been preparing a series of ghastly paintings for the occasion. Discuss Chet Zar here.
Coming up on October 11th, Luke Chueh (featured) will be opening his next solo in Los Angeles at CHG Circa. Entitled Self-ish, the new collection of paintings will feature some introspective musings as the locally-based artist takes a honest and closer look at his inner psyche. Planned for the exhibition will also be some looser watercolor that Chueh has been exploring recently. We’ll be delving deeper into the fresh body of work as we get closer to the show but for now check out these two new […]
With D*Face’s (interviewed) show opening soon (next weekend) in Los Angeles, the British artist was busy completing a new mural at the same location as where the popup exhibition will be held (315 Robertson Blvd).

Opening on Saturday, September 20 is the first solo show by gallery artist Rob Sato at Martha Otero. The LA-based artist will exhibit to his home-town audience mainly works on paper, but will also include baseballs (he played the sport as a kid) and sketchbooks. The presentation will tie personal, fictional, and historical narratives that the artist processes into his own visual aesthetic to explore his own ideas of memory, space, and time. One highlight of the show is Sato’s epic project Five Movements For […]
Yesterday, AM stopped by Thinkspace Gallery to take a look at the new body of work from Kelly Vivanco. Entitled Peculiar Tides, the fresh paintings worked off a nautical theme where her characters are situated in seaside or underwater environments. Completing the whimsical nature of the show was an installation of ship sculptures (seen above) on a wall of waves, where some of the creatures seen in her work can be seen piloting the vessels. Discuss this show here. Discuss Kelly Vivanco here.
