With the opening of the Fame Festival set for this Saturday night, Erica Il Cane squeezed in two last murals in Grottaglie. The Bologna-based artist’s murals are straight from fairy tales with the feel of old-school illustrations found in antique books, but in wonderful large scale. Take a look at another piece – “the frog prince” – after the jump as well as a video of his unusual technique of handpainted his screenprints.

Featured next month in New York at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery will be the bittersweet art from the “Queen of Hearts” Tara McPherson. We’ll be looking forward to seeing what adventures are in store for her signature redheads with their heart motifs (see Dr. Sketchy session), but we’re sure the new body of work will also bring some other surprises for her fans. If you can’t wait until next month, you can catch her signing prints at ZEROFRIENDS in SF tomorrow. Discuss Tara McPherson here.
It sounds like fans of Jeremy Geddes (interviewed) will be seeing a major show from him stateside come 2012. Showing alongside his friend and esteemed artist / illustrator Ashley Wood at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, the dynamic duo will give New York a taste of what Hong Kong and Beijing have already experienced. 2012 is a long ways off and with prophecies of the end of the world on the horizon, we will keep you up to date on the any details we hear – […]

Proving home is where the heart is, it must have been a special moment a couple weeks ago when Aaron Horkey opened his retrospective entitled “Midwestern Heart” in his hometown at the Remick Gallery. With many of the past beloved prints and works from the famed illustrator on display, about the only piece of new art was above show poster above that shows off Horkey’s renowned typography skills. More pics from the show captured by Ben C.K. after the jump…
Just hours ago, Todd “REAS” James’ show at Galeria Javier López opened it’s doors to the “Great Adventure”. It turns out, the adventure was a tongue-in-cheek way of referring to wars and the associated atrocities that come with it. Much like his show earlier this year in NY at Gering & López (covered), James’ cartoonish portrayal of the machinations of war include smiling tanks shooting out blood, funny-faced missiles romping around, nude female soldiers frolicking around in the mayhem, and much more. Seeing the chaos […]
Showing with Krista Huot (whose work we previewed yesterday) at Corey Helford this weekend will be the talented Mia (interviewed) and Korin Faught. Those attending the show will be impressed by Mia’s storytelling and all the details she packs into her paintings, framed like a scene from greek mythology or epic fantasy novel. Fans of Korin Faught point to her honest portraits of the female form and her use of lighting as aspects of her work worthy of admiration. See for yourself. More preview images […]
