Previews: Terry Richardson – “TERRYWOOD” @ OHWOW

In his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, kinky shotmaker to the stars Terry Richardson will be presenting at OHWOW a more fine art spin to his impressive commercial photographic oeuvre. Opening Friday, February 24th, TERRYWOOD will serve as a refreshing departure from his concept driven yet more constrictive Mom & Dad and HONG KONG exhibitions last year. This time around, Terry opens his shutter wide, takes aim at his favorite muse – Hollywood – and lets his true, unfiltered colors shine through. Capturing both the […]

Releases: “Cast Light” by Daniel Arsham & Alex Mustonen

On the heels of Daniel Arsham’s exhibition the fall, the ball, and the wall that opened last month at OHWOW, we thought it worthwhile to bring your attention to an intriguing art project he produced not long ago in collaboration with Alex Mustonen. Previously collaborating together on the experimental installation and performance art exhibition DIG, the three-dimensionally inclined artists partner again here on Cast Light, a series of “lights” consisting of a single long-life LED bulb cast within a solid cubic volume of white gypsum cement […]

Publications: Scott Campell – “If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long” Signed Edition

As we mentioned last year, Scott Campbell’s first book, If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long, is now fully baked and ready for consumption. Published by Rizzoli and OHWOW, the hardcover monograph chronicles the origins of, parallels between, and indelible influence of his tattoo work and his fine art, with his cut-currency sculptures already making headlines again this year during showings in both Zurich and Singapore last month. The comprehensive 208-page publication is as rich in imagery as it is insightful in commentary, including a series of salient […]

Publications: Scott Campbell – “If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long” Book

Coming next spring from Rizzoli, and produced in conjunction with OHWOW publishing, comes Scott Campbell’s first monograph focusing on the duality of his artistic career both as a tattoo prodigy and a fine art powerplayer. Named in homage of his debut New York solo exhibition last year, If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long discusses how his ink work informs his gallery work and vice versus. Referencing of “new antiquarian” style, nineteenth-century hand-lettering, kitsch, and classic tattoo “flash”, his art – as seen this year […]

Art Focus: Kon Trubkovich

Continuing our Art Focus feature, where we shine a light on those executing compelling artwork yet that perhaps don’t receive the attention they should, we bring you Kon Trubkovich, a Russian-born artist living and working in New York City. Drawing inspiration from the Cold War era Soviet Union he escaped early on, Kon’s work explores themes of lost identity and personal and cultural detachment. Through a series of oil paintings and graphite drawings, he captures distorted freeze-frame moments of video footage with immaculate clarity and […]

Previews: José Parlá – “Character Gestures” @ OHWOW (LA)

José Parlá explores that delicate balance between creation and destruction. As if ancient relics recovered from some archeological dig, his paintings are like modern hieroglyphs each telling a story of a time and place, that of the here and now. While taking on a timeless feel, the protagonist in his tale has always been the city. Dynamic juxtapositions – roughness and fluidity, complexity and minimalism, harmony and chaos – illuminate the soul of his urban muse. With his first solo exhibition since Walls, Diaries, and […]

Teaser: José Parlá – “Character Gestures” @ OHWOW (LA)

With a landmark exhibition at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, entitled Walls, Diaries, and Paintings (covered), just a couple months back in New York, José Parlá will look to parlay his creative juices on the West Coast with a showing this fall at OHWOW’s new Los Angeles space. Opening September 9th, Character Gestures will continue a long tradition of the Brooklyn-based artist and Miami-based institution collaborating together on epic exhibitions. As such, this iteration is sure to impress, providing Southern Californians their much over due fill […]

Video: Tim Barber Interview with

Focal point of OHWOW’s hugely successful, and immensely compelling, exhibition last fall, Untitled Photographs (covered), Tim Barber recently sat down with for a insightful interview. Shedding some light on his background and inspiration, the New York-based photographer spoke about how his parents served as the impetus for his interest in photography, his fond memories traveling the world with good friend Ryan McGinley, the historical origins of the tinyvices online gallery he founded, and his affinity for rudimentary point and shoot cameras over expensive DSLRs […]
"Noblesse Oblige", 2011, Cut uncut US currency sheets, copper box, 21 x 25 x 18.75 inches

Preview: Scott Campbell – “Noblesse Oblige” @ OHWOW (LA)

Wielding a plethora of obscure media in clever ways, Scott Campbell is poised to provide an intriguing look at the transformation of the orthodox into the outrageous, all with a heavy dose of tattoo symbolism. Be it US Currency, ostrich eggs, black light neon tubing or copper plates, the cutting edge Brooklyn-based artist has transplanted the outsiders aesthetic typically exercised within the confines of his tattoo studio to the virgin gallery space of OHWOW’s new Los Angeles home. Serving as the inaugural exhibition at the ivy […]
