Previews: Ludovic Vernhet (Ludo) – “Duality” @ Castor Gallery

Almost three months after participating in one of Castor Gallery’s group show and releasing a limited edition print with them, Ludovic Vernhet aka Ludo (interviewed) is back in NYC for his solo with the gallery. Titled Duality, the show features new canvas and sculptural works focused on artist’s eternal inspiration source – the duality of life. Taking the Renaissance still life portrait as his basic composition ideal, he created new works that combine natural elements along with man-made, mechanical, and often weaponized parts. Using a slightly different process for this […]

Streets: Nick Walker – “Love Vandal” (NYC)

Last month, UK-based artist Nick Walker metaphorically set his name on fire with his solo exhibition in New York City. That excellent show featured a new body of work that impressed visitors indoors at a Soho pop-up gallery space. To follow that up, Mr. Walker made sure the good folks of NYC also got a taste of his work outdoors with his iconic Love Vandal (covered) character. This large mural, which was located off 17th street & 6th avenue in a parking lot, caught the […]

Upcoming: Maya Hayuk – “Light Heavy” @ Cinders Gallery

After a successful solo show in Cologne (covered), Maya Hayuk is following that up by opening her first solo show in Manhattan on October 30th. Titled Light Heavy, this will be her third solo with Cinders Gallery, this time at their pop up location at Mulherin NY (124 Forsyth St). The title of the exhibition comes from the feel of the works created for this show – large and textured, the works feel heavy, but the bright colors make them feel light. As seen from a teaser piece […]

Videos: Judith Supine Scales the Queensboro Bridge

We just received this exclusive video from Judith Supine‘s camp, showing some behind the scene action that took place the other night in NYC. As street art lovers already know, Supine has been known to put extra effort to place his public work in some of the most unusual places reachable. So, following his stunt from 2007, when he installed one of his pieces on Manhattan Bridge, the other night he climbed the Queensboro bridge in order to display one of his collages from the Golden Child […]

Openings: Stephanie Gutheil – “Kopftheater” @ Mike Weiss

Mike Weiss Gallery in Chlesea recently opened an interesting show by young German artist Stefanie Gutheil. The exhibition is entitled “Kopftheater”, which translates to “Theater of the mind” and is a fitting description of the strange and imaginative worlds portrayed in Gutheil’s paintings. The press release name-drops 15th and 16th-century Dutch painters Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel as influences, but we think that her creatures remind us a lot of Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice. Take a look at the images and decide for yourself, after the […]
