Almost two years after her last show in New York, Nicoletta Ceccoli (interviewed) has unveiled new paintings at AFA NYC. Entitled Sweet & Low, the fresh body of work continues the exploration of her delicate female characters in a land of dessert. As seen commonly in the San Marino-based painter and illustrator’s work, the innocence of the setting is balanced by an undercurrent of dark themes seen when her imagery is examined more closely.

International vandal and art terrorist Anthony Lister (filmed) has been at it again. Actually, let us rephrase, he is still at it. Anyone who knows Lister also knows he has a unrelenting appetite for production, and makes no apologies to anyone, (generally for anything). Appropriately titled, Hurt People – Hurt People is set to open Friday, November 28th at Lazarides in London. Lister’s latest body of work explores society’s false sense of security, something Mister Lister undoubtably knows a little something about. Thru his latest run-ins […]
Arrested Motion was on hand for the Saturday, November 8th opening of “Momentum”, the three person show featuring Mars-1, Oliver Vernon and Damon Soule at Space Gallery in Denver, Colorado. The highlight of the exhibition was a 10′ by 23′ piece that was a collaboration of all three artists (called The Furtherrr Collective when assembled), a piece so large and powerful in texture, color, and size that it feels as if a riff has opened up and the wall has become a worm hole into […]

The fresh pieces will continue to feature his portraiture of children and different wild creatures as well as his familiar exploration of identity thru the use of costumes. Discuss Nate Frizzell here.
Jonathan LeVine Gallery recently closed a successful solo show by Esao Andrews titled Epilogues. Being his second show with the gallery, the paintings continue and revisit the imagery from his previous exhibition and form a coherent body of work when taken together. Burnt hot air balloons, fabric patterns, flocks of crows, snakes, are just some of the recurring elements that can be noticed in more than one painting. The main focus of these pieces was the ongoing narrative in Andrew’s work, and a challenge to give some sort […]
Incense filled the air as we visited the Takashi Murakami exhibition at Gagosian Gallery. This is the site of the artist’s first major exhibition in New York City since his monumental retrospective held at the Brooklyn Museum (covered) in 2007. Entitled In the Land of the Dead, Stepping on the Tail of a Rainbow, this great showcase took full advantage of the grand space of Gagosian’s 24th street location in Chelsea. Utilizing various signature techniques he’s accrued on his way to becoming a key international […]

The photos we just received show some game changing new works he’s been creating for his solo show Remix, opening on the 21st of November in the Motor City. Due to his strong engagement with street work and busy travel schedule, this will be his first US solo show in the last five years. After 15+ years of creating public art in 100+ cities and 60+ […]
