Back in 2012, we covered the first mural in Manhattan from Ron English (featured) in over 25 years, featuring his signature Temper Tot figure, a play on The Incredible Hulk. Over the last couple days, the New York-based artist has added a pink brother to the original piece on an adjacent wall for the L.I.S.A Project. Located on 114 Mulberry Street in Little Italy, the matching murals are dedicated to English’s kids Zephyr and Mars, the original Temper Tots. Discuss Ron English here.
Starting on this Thursday, the Standard Hotel on The High Line will be be hosting new work from Jose Parla.

Counting down to the last days of the EVOL exhibition at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, here is a look back at the Berlin-based artist setting up for the show. Specializing in the reproduction of urban structures in the miniature on the streets, his work is intrinsically suited for the transition into the indoor setting. For Unreal Estate, his cardboard & stenciled constructions are commenting on the current state of the real estate market and comparing it to the post-wall, pre-gentrified East Berlin. He further states – “Society is constantly […]

Set to open on Thursday night (June 18th), Thank You For Being You is Paul Wackers’ second solo (see 2011) with Morgan Lehman Gallery. As seen by the preview images included here, the New York-based artist’s work continues to focus on shelves, windows, and interior landscapes that feature objects we are familiar with but also abstract forms – whether it be a few brushstrokes or a dab of spraypaint. This intriguing mix of detailed depiction of everyday objects with non-representational imagery is mirrored in his […]
On June 18th, The Quin hotel in NYC will be opening a Good Story, a solo exhibition by Amanda Marie. For her first big show in NYC, MANDO is creating a narrative that feels like a mid-twentieth century Little Golden Books children’s story. Though playful and cheerful at first glance with children characters at play, her works usually have a certain twist to them which adds a nice tension to her pieces. Utilizing stencils as her primary form of mark-making, the American artist has been developing her visual language for […]
David Zwirner in New York is currently showing recent paintings and pastels from Lisa Yuskavage at their 533 West 19th Street location. Inspired by hippies and her experiences growing up in the 70s, the locally-based painter has produced a vibrant new body of work that for the first time includes men in her portraiture.

Head over for […]
