Marco Mazzoni will be opening his first solo exhibition with Thinkspace gallery on Saturday, November 8th. Titled Immune, this show will introduce pencil on paper works that are strongly inspired by Sardinian myths and tradition, and in this particular case, by a human’s endurance of pain. Working with a medium that is often considered unsophisticated, Mazzoni creates soft, dreamy images, putting great attention to details, and achieving fantastic gradation and light effect.

Coming up on November 15th, Mark Moore Gallery in Los Angeles will be opening their second showing (see 2012) with Kris Kuksi and his insane mixed-media assemblage works. Antiquity in the Faux will once again give his fans in SoCal the chance to admire his beautifully grotesque compositions that take a variety of disparate items – figurines, model parts, collectibles, craft parts, and jewelry – and arranges them in a way to tell a intricate story. Oftentimes these narratives involve struggle, conflict, faith, sexuality, and power surrounding a central figure and spreading to […]

After several months of traveling and creating murals, ROA opened a new solo with Dorothy Circus Gallery on October 31st, introducing some fresh indoor works. Titled Suovetaurilia, the show is dedicated to Rome and its audience, as it refers to the ancient ritual animal sacrifice of a pig (sus), a sheep (ovis) and a bull (tauris) common at one time in the area. With this exhibition, the prolific Belgian artist is connecting the Rome in the distant past, where thousands of exotic animals were killed for people’s entertainment, with the contemporary […]
