Previews: Jin Young Yu – “Myself / Them” @ Art Merge Lab

Coming up on September 19th, fans in Los Angeles will have a rare opportunity to see a selection of works from Jin Young Yu (interviewed) stateside at Art Merge Lab, a popup project in Downtown LA. Utilizing her signature technique of working with transparent plastic, the Korean artist creates life-size individuals (sometimes including their families and pets) while playing with ideas of identity and the tensions between our outward appearances and how we really feel inside. While this was the focus of her Me & Myself series of works, attendees […]

Upcoming: Mark Whalen – “Trapazoid” @ KP Projects // MKG

Coming up on September 12th, Mark Whalen will continue his longstanding collaboration with KP Projects // MKG (see 2012, 2014) on a new show entitled Trapazoid. The new series of works continues his signature exploration of geometrical and mathematical concepts, mixed in with a heavy dose provocative human behavior. He further states – “My work is an interpretation of the modern era. I like to really explore all aspects of human activity and behavior through the paintings. Whether it be ideas of invention, science, sexual desire, […]

Recap: Edwin Ushiro – “The Study of Life as Things” @ Giant Robot 2

We stopped Giant Robot 2 in Los Angeles earlier this week to see the solo from Edwin Ushiro (interviewed) who had a wonderful series of drawings on display made from ballpoint pen, markers, pens, color pencils and graphite. Perhaps it’s the translucent paper used for these new pieces, but the translucent and ethereal look draws the viewer in for a second look to try and decipher how the Los Angeles-based artist achieves the effect. This transparency and glowing look would have been familiar to fans of his larger paintings, a […]

Studio Visits: Yoskay Yamamoto

Earlier this week, AM stopped by the studio of Yoskay Yamamoto (interviewed) to see what he has been up to and what he has planned for the future. Along with picking up some of the whimsical Pothead plant holders he is producing through Sunny Side Up Studio, we also enjoyed seeing some of the new paintings he has been working on – many sunsets and polka dots in a beautiful new color palette. Those in Los Angeles can see these pieces at the upcoming Giant Robot Biennale at the Japanese […]

Streets: Hot Tea (Los Angeles)

A couple nights ago, under the cover of darkness, Hot Tea and a few friends placed one of his signature installations over the pedestrian bridge that spans the PCH close to Santa Monica Blvd. and Broadway. The culmination of their hard work can be seen in the photos below, a gradient of color featuring 1,180 strands of yarn in 14 different colors that the Minneapolis-based artist dubbed Migration. Head over for a look yourself as it can be taken down by the city at any moment. A […]

Openings: Nosego – “Along Infinite River” @ Thinkspace Gallery

A couple weekends ago, Along Infinite River opened at the Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles, a testament to the hard work and imagination of Yis Goodwin. Otherwise known as Nosego, especially for his work on the streets, the Philadelphia-base artist unveiled a collection of new vibrant paintings that put his surreal hybrids of different creatures and landscapes on display. Along with these works, he also painted a wall mural for his fans to enjoy. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: Birdman Photos. Discuss Nosego […]

On September 12th, the Thinkspace Gallery will be welcoming Aaron Horkey, Esao Andrews, and Joao Ruas in for a joint show entitled The Gilded Age. We have already seen firsthand the magic Horkey & Andrews can create together and are anxious to see what Ruas can bring to the mix. Each artist is a master of setting a scene with mood and atmosphere as well as rendering their artistic vision in a distinctive way. Take a look at the amazing effort from Horkey on the typography and showcard […]

Streets: El Mac x Kofie (LA)

El Mac recently teamed up with his friend Augustine Kofie (featured) once again and to paint a new piece entitled Icarian Flight somewhere on the streets of LA. This is not the first time the two locally-based artists have collaborated, and with a good reason we must add after seeing this mural. The juxtaposition of El Mac’s distinctive soft portraiture against sharp and geo-based abstraction of Kofie creates a powerful mixture that brings out the best of both styles. On top of being different imagery wise, the transparent, aerosol-based […]

Upcoming: Eric Joyner @ Corey Helford Gallery

Fans of Eric Joyner (interviewed) will be pleased to hear that he will be having another solo in September at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles after his last one there in 2013 (covered). Hopefully, this new painting he is working on will be part of the new body of work as we are quite smitten by his robot police lineups and this newest one looks to be shaping up nicely. Of course, we will also be looking forward the Bay Area-based artist’s predilection for painting […]
