Baby Tattooville ’10: “California Kustom” Museum Reception

As blissful and adventurous as the confines of the Mission Inn (where everything usually goes down) are, sometimes it is good to leave and take a field trip during Baby Tattooville. As has become tradition for the event, the Riverside Art Museum, in conjunction with BT, opened an exhibition featuring artists from the weekend-long extravaganza. The show—which unlike other BT events is open to the public—includes fantastic works by Robert and Suzanne Williams, Ron English, Coop, Michael Hussar, Anthony Ausgang, William Stout, Spain Rodriguez, Van […]

Openings: Brian Viveros – “The Dirtyland” @ Thinkspace Gallery

A couple weeks ago, Brian Viveros’ “The Dirtyland” exhibition opened at the Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City. The immersive exhibition featured paintings, drawings, one-off hand-finished prints, installations, sculptural work (with the help of Gustavo Ponce), and video from the Riverside based artist all inspired by his fascination with Hispanic culture in general (bull-fighting, day of the dead, luchadores, etc) and of course, nicotine. When we visited his studio before the show, Brian was really excited to have a large space all to himself to fully […]

Audrey Kawasaki Unfinished Pieces

It’s amazing how self-critical some artists can be when it comes to their own artwork. We have even heard of some burning work that doesn’t sell after a show. We suppose that is the price of perfection! Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed) recently posted up some unfinished paintings that just didn’t make the cut for some reason or another – like the one above which would have fit nicely with her upcoming series of shows in Australia next month. Most of these paintings passed the test of […]
