On January 14th, Dave Kinsey (featured) will be opening a solo show at New Image Art in Los Angeles entitled Momentary Bliss. The new work is heavily influenced by his time in the Sierra Nevada Mountains before relocating back to a downtown Los Angeles studio. Kinsey’s recent paintings are increasingly more abstract compositions of textures and forms with a hint of the figurative. Discuss Dave Kinsey here.

David Bloch Gallery in Marrakech is currently hosting a third solo show from Remed. Plenium opened on December 23rd, consisting of a vibrant series of canvas, drawings and sculptures inspired by Spanish artist’s latest trips around the world. Constantly inspired by Moroccan culture and its distinctive elements, this body of work strongly relies on the conjunction of geometry and calligraphy. Using the flow and the energy of the line along with the vibrancy of his limited color palette, Remed is seeking a harmonic and mathematic purity with his work. Though […]
After bringing you a look at the goodness inside of the Juxtapoz Clubhouse during Basel Week Miami, we now have something else to share from outside that fans enjoyed along with a large mural by Shepard Fairey (covered). Andrew Schoultz spent his time painting his imagery all over a skate park that was a welcome addition to Miami’s Wynwood district. Produced with assistance from the magazine as well as Mana Contemporary, the interactive installation was dubbed the Infinity Plaza. Via The Creators Project. Discuss Andrew Schoultz here.
Last month, Thinkspace Gallery hosted an exhibition from Fuco Ueda entitled Odd-Eye, her second solo (see 2014) with the Culver City showspace. The beautifully rendered new works from the Japanese artist are mainly created on canvas with a few smaller pieces on paper, all featuring her characteristic lush imagery and palette. Surrounded by reoccurring motifs and symbols of death (such as chrysanthemum flowers & skeletal elements) as well as disquieting creatures, her flushed girls seem to be trapped in some sort of lurid dream world.

Next month, Invader takes over Le Musée en Herbe in Paris for an exhibition entitled Hello, My Game Is… Over 100 new works will be on show, forming part of the museum’s ongoing program to bring art to all generations with a particular emphasis on the young. The title refers to the name stickers, which are popular with graffiti artists and support-group coordinators alike. The twist on the name emphasizes the playfulness of the work and the exhibition’s aim to actively encourage people to interact with the […]
Thomas Canto recently introduced his latest big project, the Illusory Perspectives installation at Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. This large installation continues his series of futuristic aesthetics-oriented works which combine urban and geometrical elements in an eclectic abstract form. Mixing painted patterns with actual objects and a grid of both lines and threads installed in the space, the French artist creates a multidimensional work that plays with observers’ perspectives. Taking city and urban landscapes as an endless inspiration, his work plays with light and its effects on surroundings. In this manner, […]

Showing through the rest of the month at Gordon Galleries’ new space (6 Hapelech St), their third space in South Tel Aviv, is a solo exhibition from Faile (featured). Entitled Strong Currents, the new pieces sees the Patricks turn their attention to the hidden agendas and issues that underlay much of our social-political system. Creating through multiple mediums including printmaking, stenciling, and painting (this time with more focus on underpainting) the Brooklyn-based duo successfully introduced a fresh look at their iconic imagery for their first show in Israeli […]
Anselm Kiefer returns to the White Cube’s Bermondsey space after an absence of five years for his latest exhibition entitled Walhalla. Superficially, Catch 22 by Joseph Heller appears to be a novel about the Second World War, but scratching beneath the surface reveals a novel about the twentieth century as a whole with critiques of unfettered capitalism, the rise and fall of geo-political powers and our own inevitable mortality. Equally, at first glance, the work of Kiefer can appear to focus on the long, dark shadow cast […]
