Streets: devNgosha @ theAudience (Los Angeles)

Newly formed art collective devNgosha recently stopped by the offices of theAudience and painted a new mural entitled Connected. Situated in the same building that houses work from JR (covered) and Kozyndan (covered), this new multi-wall project combines the talents of Devin Liston and Gosha Levochkin. In the past, Devin’s work has always had a strong emphasis on portrait work and during his time as part of Cyrcle., he helped formed a style that gave that group a multi-faceted approach to their art. On the other hand, Gosha’s work has […]

Upcoming: “Supernatural” @ Japanese American National Museum

Next month in Downtown LA’s Little Tokyo, the Japanese American National Museum will be hosting a group exhibition from three artists – Audrey Kawasaki, Edwin Ushiro, and Timothy Teruo Watters. Entitled Supernatural, the showing will give an opportunity for all three artists to explore otherworldly concepts, illustrating how traditional ideas have evolved and have been adapted over time. If this newest piece from Ushiro is any indication, this is one show you don’t want to miss (opening on February 9th). Discuss Edwin Ushiro here.

Openings: Nate Frizzell – “Spectrum” @ LeBasse Projects (Culver City)

Just this Saturday night, the LeBasse Projects in Culver City hosted the opening for Nate Frizzell (interviewed) and his newest solo show entitled Spectrum. The new paintings each featured the use of one pre-dominant color and his interpretations on the best imagery to fit that color, and when taken in total combine into one cohesive body of work. The show runs until February 2nd so stop by if you can.  Also, check out our photos below… Photo credit: theonepointeight for Arrested Motion. Discuss this show here. Discuss Nate Frizzell here.

Openings: David MacDowell – “Project Mayhem” @ Thinkspace Gallery

Returning to the site of his last solo show (covered), Dave MacDowell (interviewed) presented a new body of work over the weekend at the Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City. Entitled Project Mayhem, the exhibition certainly caused some damage that as MacDowell targeted anyone and everyone with his special form of caricatured satire – from religious, to political figures, and pop culture icons. Take a look at more photos from the opening below… Photo credit: theonepointeight for Arrested Motion. Discuss this show here. Discuss David MacDowell here.

Openings: Andrew Schoultz – “Fall Out” @ Mark Moore Gallery

Just this Saturday night, the Mark Moore Gallery in Culver City hosted the newest solo show from Andrew Schoultz entitled Fall Out. As we have come to expect form the San Francisco-based painter, the showspace was transformed with a series of installations. Taking it a step further, these sculptural elements seem to interact closely with the Mission School stalwart’s imagery – like the cannon seemingly spewing gold onto his recent riffs on the American flag. Also present were some some familiar motifs including brick walls, kinetic patterns, illuminati […]

Tomorrow night (January 12th), the LeBasse Projects in Culver City will be presenting all new works from Nate Frizzell (interviewed). Spectrum will be his first solo showing of oil paintings since 2011 (covered) and as the title suggests, each painting will be focusing on a single color from his palette – in turn making up the full color range. Along with the originals, a special limited edition box set (seen below) of each of the eight paintings in the exhibition will be released. There will only be 50 boxes produced – […]

Showing: Mark Schoening – ‘Recordings of a Lone Infantryman’ @ Marine Contemporary

Recordings of a Lone Infantryman is Los Angeles-based artist Mark Schoening’s latest solo exhibition currently showing at Marine Contemporary in Venice, CA. We’ve been looking forward to seeing this latest evolution of Mark’s work after seeing some glimpses of new sculptures – a first for Schoening – via his instagram account. His abstract compositions are full of dimensional depth with the build up of layer upon layer of paint and other medias between resin coats, but the geometric sculptures literally add a whole other dimension to his body of work – […]

Upcoming: Andrew Schoultz – “Fall Out” @ Mark Moore Gallery

On January 12th, the Mark Moore Gallery will be presenting Fall Out, a solo showing from San Francisco-based artist, Andrew Schoultz. Along with original works featuring his kinetic imagery and motifs, Schoultz will be creating some of the gallery installations (painting, sculpture, drawing, and collage) he has been known for. Referencing interactions with institutions like a public civic center, museum, or church, attendees will be albe to sit on handcrafted benches as they are confronted with his imagery ripe with sociopolitical implications – including his recent series of American flags stamped […]
