After a look at Conor Harrington’s new mural for Street Art Doping in Warsaw, we now have photos of the effort from 1010. Like his recent piece in Las Vegas (covered), the German artist painted his signature multi-colored optical illusion on the side of a building. Take a look at more shots of wall below and let your eyes fool you into visualizing a hole on the side of the structure. Discuss Conor Harrington here.

Currently (thru October 18th) at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Philip Haas has installed his larger than life sculptures that take Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s famous face portraits (made from fruits, vegetables, flowers) into the third dimension. Taking inspiration from the Renaissance painter’s The Four Seasons set of paintings, Haas has impressively recreated the characters in 360 degrees and at fifteen feet high and placed them on the south lawn of the museum. Make sure you head inside to check out the smaller scale models as well if you plan to visit. […]
Fans of Eric Joyner (interviewed) will be pleased to hear that he will be having another solo in September at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles after his last one there in 2013 (covered). Hopefully, this new painting he is working on will be part of the new body of work as we are quite smitten by his robot police lineups and this newest one looks to be shaping up nicely. Of course, we will also be looking forward the Bay Area-based artist’s predilection for painting […]
As a followup to his small show earlier this year (covered) at Thinkspace Gallery, Brian Mashburn will be taking over the project room with a more extensive body of work starting this Saturday, July 18th.

Take a look at more preview images below… Discuss Brian Mashburn here.

A large group of enthusiastic fans were on hand to greet Jeremy Fish (featured) during his July 3rd opening at Denver’s Black Book Gallery. The show is titled Anger Management and features 18 new pieces of work, largely inspired by his recent aneurysm and resulting need to find a way to mellow out. The show will be on display until July 25th, so stop by if you are in the area. Discuss Jeremy Fish here.
San Francisco’s Park Life will be hosting a July 15th opening for a collaborative exhibition between Francesco Igory Deiana and Atelier Pica Pica entitled Meeting On The Shore. Aside from showing together, the Italian born artist and Belgian art collective actually created the entire body of work together, which resulted in a coherent show. The title was a result of the fact that the artists never really met in person before they decided to collaborate and do this experimental project together. For this show, the artists shared Francesco’s new studio space in the city and created everything together from scratch. They […]

Put together by young curators Yarrow Slaps & Auguste Somers from SF & LA, this show features a wide array of over 40 artists with vastly different backgrounds – from up-and-coming artists and creative individuals with a strong urge to capture their reality, interests, or life, to legendary Mission school representatives like Barry Mcgee, Alicia Mccarthy, Chris Johanson. While on the surface, the event was a group exhibition at an art gallery, […]
