Showing: Nicolas Romero – “Empathy/a” @ The Diogenes Club

Nicolas Romero, also known by his alias Ever/Siempre, currently has a solo show on view at The Diogenes Club in LA. The space for experimental art projects in Los Angeles’ Frog Town neighborhood is hosting his latest series of works titled Empathy/a. Continuing projects with a strong conceptual note, the exhibition addresses the relationships we have with objects, a subject that the Argentinian artist has been touching on of late. The works represent allegorical presentations of our feelings through objects that reveal these internal aspects of individuals. Starting with […]

Recap: Brendan Monroe – “Formations” @ Heath Ceramics (Los Angeles)

Continuing his longstanding collaboration with Heath Ceramics (also see 2014 in LA and 2015 in SF), Brendan Monroe (interviewed) recently held a showing at their Los Angeles showroom. Entitled Formations, the focus of the new body of the work was experimenting with Heath tile’s flat clay surface as a new medium for his organic patterns. Rounding out the exhibition was a selection of framed wall hangings, large and small, along with drawings and blob sculptures, some of which can still be viewed in the gallery space.

Previews: Eric Joyner – “Glazed Machinations” @ Corey Helford Gallery

Continuing his annual showings at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles, Eric Joyner (interviewed) will be returning for another solo on June 23rd. Cleverly entitled Glazed Machinations, the new body of work perfectly encapsulates what inspires him to paint – robots and donuts. Whether it be his signature Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots or incorporating the iconic Randy’s Donuts into his imagery, Joyner always finds novel new adventures for his two “muses” as well as unique ways for them to interact.

Streets: Augustine Kofie x AiseBorn @ Rendon Hotel (Los Angeles)

Recently, Augustine Kofie (featured) teamed up with AiseBorn to paint an outstanding new mural at the former Rendon Hotel in Los Angeles. The harmonious joint effort on the 7th Street facade between the two locally-based artists was aided by the common elements that can be seen in their work like geometrical patterns, architectural influences, and a background in graffiti. This collaborative wall was commissioned as part of the Art at the Rendon // Hidden Rooms event opening next weekend, the first of a series of ongoing cultural programs hosted […]

Streets: Invader (Los Angeles)

It looks like while he was in town for the BEYOND THE STREETS exhibition (covered), Invader added to his prolific body of work on the streets of Los Angeles that stretches back over a decade. For what he calls the 9th wave of invasion of the LA, the French artist got up 29 new mosaics throughout the city including a sweet piece featuring The Dude placed perfectly outside a building that has a bowling alley.  Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Invader here.

Openings: Greg “Craola” Simkins – “The Escape Artist” @ KP Projects

Last weekend, Greg “Craola” Simkins (featured) opened his latest solo with KP Projects in West Hollywood entitled The Escape Artist. This was also the name of the large showstopper, the locally-based artist’s painting that took center stage while exploring the above and below water creatures of his world. Seen in this new body of work, which is kind of a prequel to some of his shows in the past, are some unusual eggs, the precursors to some of the fantastical bird seen in his imagery. Also making an appearance were […]

Upcoming: Greg “Craola” Simkins – “The Escape Artist” @ KP Projects

On May 19th, KP Projects in Los Angeles will be hosting their annual solo show with Greg “Craola” Simkins (featured), his seventh with the gallery. Entitled The Escape Artist, the new body of work references the locally-based artist’s immersion into the surreal world he has created with his paintbrush, a way to get away to a place where anything is possible. He further explains – “I have been taking refuge in my memories lately. Memories of the first time I saw a whale in the wild, seeing a […]

Openings: BEYOND THE STREETS (Los Angeles)

Last weekend, an expansive collection of paintings, sculptures, and site-specific installations was revealed at BEYOND THE STREETS in Los Angeles (1667 N Main St).

Previews: BEYOND THE STREETS (Los Angeles)

On May 6th, BEYOND THE STREETS will open its doors in Los Angeles (1667 N Main St), an immersive survey of graffiti and street art, the likes of which haven’t been seen since Art in the Streets (covered) in 2011. This is not surprisingly seeing as Roger Gastman was an associate curator of that show back then at the MOCA, and will be the main curator of this new exhibition. Working with a roster of over 100+ artists, 40,000+ sq. ft. of industrial indoor and outdoor space has been converted […]
