Back in 2011, we did Art Focus feature on Andreas Englund, introducing our readers to his imagery of the everyday life of superheroes and the comedy that ensues when dealing with common situations that happen to us mortals. Fast forward five years and we can see that he just completed a mural for the Wall\Therapy event in Rochester, New York, only his second public wall painted ever. Transferring his character to the large scale, the Swedish artist handles the dimensionality of the piece perfectly. Give […]

A couple weekends ago, Along Infinite River opened at the Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles, a testament to the hard work and imagination of Yis Goodwin.

Currently at Reed Projects Gallery, a show entitled Smoking Guns and Feathers from Steven Spazuk is on display, highlighting his unique technique of “fumage.” The Canada-based artist was also on hand on opening night to show delighted fans his skills in person with the flame of a candle, creating imagery with marks of smoke and soot. Referenced in the title is his theme of environmental awareness and the effect of humans on our Earth’s ecosystem as well as a nod towards his way of mark-making. Discuss Spazuk here.

Each artist is a master of setting a scene with mood and atmosphere as well as rendering their artistic vision in a distinctive way. Take a look at the amazing effort from Horkey on the typography and showcard […]
As previously mentioned, the Portuguese collective Underdogs is currently hosting a solo show from Ernest Zacharevic.

Known for images that incorporate little children interacting with reality and real objects, this show is taking it a step further and places them in an imaginary world.

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 […]
