Showing through April of next year at the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) is an exhibition celebrating the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty.

Continuing his signature series of works that we last saw in 2013 (covered), Scott Scheidly will be returning to San Francisco for a show opening tomorrow night, October 4th. Held at the sister gallery (Hashimoto Contemporary) to where he exhibited last, The Pinks 2 will see the Florida-based artist explore the cultural and social perceptions of color and symbology by painting well known characters in pop culture and history that are typically masculine with a more flamboyant aesthetic. Head over for a look at these unconventional and satirical portraits […]
Last week, the Spoke Art gallery in San Francisco unveiled all new works from Scott Scheidly.

Take a look at more of the sold out opening in the photos below and stop by in person if you are in town before the close date of August 24th. Also, take a look at a couple prints from the show available here. […]
Thursday night (August 1st) at Spoke Art, Scott Scheidly will expanding his ongoing pink portrait series with all new works for his debut solo show, The Pinks, with the gallery.

Discuss Scott Scheidly […]
Like the ArtPadSF in San Francisco earlier this year (covered), Scott Scheidly will be showing more works from his series of unusual portraits – this time at the SCOPE art fair in Miami (part of Basel Week Miami). The Orlando-based Schneidly will be one of the featured artists at the Spoke Art booth (along with Jessica Hess), so head over if you are in town to check out his tyrants, dictators, and other pop culture icons re-imagined in a different context. Discuss Basel Week Miami here.
Starting tomorrow, attendees of this year’s ArtPadSF in San Francisco will be able to peruse the wares of participating galleries, curators, and exhibitors. Those heading over to the iconic Phoenix Hotel (site of Mars-1 public mural) for the event should make sure to stop by the booth of our friends at Spoke Art as they will be displaying new works from Scott Scheidly entitled Portraits : a series of “fabulous” depictions of tyrants, dictators and popes. This title is should be pretty self-explanatory and you should expect […]
“Transcenders” opened in Los Angeles at Gallery 1988 last night. The group show features work from Jason D’Aquino, Doktor A, Scott Scheidly, Jason Limon, and Michael Page. All of these artists are from out of town, but luckily, AM was able to meet up with Jason D’Aquino, Michael Page, and Jason Limon at last night’s opening.
