Openings: Emma Tooth – ‘Concilium Plebis’ @ Lazarides Outsiders Gallery

Hopefully you caught our interview with Emma Tooth recently just ahead of her London solo opening at the Lazarides Outsiders Gallery, if not you can check it out here. AM went along to the opening of Concilium Plebis to check out the work for ourselves down in the dungeon. We’ve already seen some of the series of paintings before at her recent exhibition at Derby Museum earlier this year, and also when we visited Emma in her studio, but there was a healthy mixture of […]

Showing: Kelsey Brookes – “Caped Creatures” @ Circleculture Gallery

Currently showing at  Circleculture Gallery in Berlin, Kelsey Brookes’ new body of work features his signature colorful eruptions of abstract shapes. When examined closer, the raw forms coalesce into the various “Caped Creatures” as well as a place of refuge in what appears to be a Noah’s Ark painting. Check out more photos of the San Diego-based artist’s work via Art School Vets after the jump…

Openings: Thinkspace Five Year Anniversary Show

Last Saturday night marked an important event at Thinkspace Gallery history – their five year anniversary! Drawing from a long list of artists, many whom got their first break at the Silverlake and now recently relocated to Culver City gallery, the walls were filled with great pieces from the contributors who wanted to make sure they paid proper tribute. Amidst the crowded rooms, we spotted KMNDZ (seen above), with his wall mural and mini-show. Take a look at his and all the rest of the […]

Studio Visits: Greg “Craola” Simkins @ Gallery 1988

With Greg’s exhibition opening this Friday night at G1988LA, we decided to drop by Greg’s studio two weeks ago to see how everything was coming along. Greg was finishing up one last painting and everything else was pretty much complete and AMAZING. In addition to a great new body of work, there will be a new print release along with an exclusive release and signing of Greg’s new book “Drawn from the Well”. This is definitely going to be a great one. We will see […]

Studio Visits: Brian Viveros

As we mentioned last week, we recently had the chance to stop by Brian Viveros’ Riverside studio for a visit to talk to him about a show we had been looking forward to for a while now. “The Dirtyland” opens this Saturday night (note that it’s not the usual Friday opening) at Thinkspace Gallery and will be a comprehensive exhibition of Brian’s artistic vision. The artist, based in the beautiful IE, is known for his smoking hot girls, often battered and bruised, but still maintaining […]

Studio Visits / Previews: Yoskay Yamamoto @ Roq La Rue

With the exhibition coming up this weekend, we thought it would be an excellent time to give you the entire studio visit / preview images for this new body of work consisting of paintings on paper (we […]
