Dan Bergeron (aka Faux Reel) has a cool show at Toronto’s Show & Tell Gallery. The ever clever street artist created a body of work utilizing the distressed surface of the street and integrates them with the charm & familiarity of the human face. This exhibition will close this Sunday October 3rd, so try and make it out to catch this in person before it disappears forever. Check out more images after the jump.

Baby Tattooville 2010 is underway! The day before the official madness began, featured artists were able to take a moment to catch up with one another over dinner and learn what BT is all about from the ringmaster himself, Bob Self. Proudly sponsored by Arrested Motion, artists and crew spent their first night in Riverside dining on delicious fried catfish, tortas, and burritos at BT fave eccentric dining spot Tio’s Tacos. Afterwards, it was back to the historic Mission Inn, BT headquarters, so that the […]
Opening tonight, September 30th, at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles will be a new series of seven paintings from Roland Tamayo (interviewed). Showing alongside Ben Strawn in a joint show is entitled “With Ease”, Roland will be showing paintings with his signature nature / technology juxtapositions. It will be nice to see him show in his hometown again and we would suggest you stop by if you are in the area. Discuss this show here. Discuss Roland Tamayo here.
This may seem like pretty advanced notice, but we were so enamored with Camille Rose Garcia’s last project illustrating Alice in the Wonderland that we had to let you in on this tasty piece of news. It looks like her next show has been announced for March at the Michael Kohn Gallery and this time, another popular children’s story will be the focus – Snow White. AM is looking forward to seeing the new body of work with CRG’s signature twist. Discuss Camille Rose Garcia […]
Friends and LA-based artists Edwin Ushiro’s (interviewed) and Yoskay Yamamoto (featured) made their way northwest to attend the opening of their latest joint show at the Roq La Rue a couple of weeks ago. Yoskay bought some works on a new medium for him – paper – as well as some sweet wood sculptures all entitled “lost stories and found memories”. Edwin displayed a new body of work infused with his Hawaiian aesthetic entitled “Preceding Sunday” as well a free gift for his fans. Opening […]
Last month we brought you a teaser of Kaws with his ginormous 5 meter high companion. Created to greet guests entering Kowloon’s Harbour City in for Hong Kong, the awe inspiring figure has arrived safely for it’s October 3rd opening entitled “Passing Through”. It appears that the city is preparing for the opening with assorted character wall paper installations to compliment the exhibition at the main entrances. There will also be specialized Kaws items available including shirts, mugs & stickers in their shop commemorating this event. Wish we […]
We couldn’t resist posting another teaser pic that is possibly (there’s a good chance it’s a commission piece also due to its size) for Josh Keyes‘ (interviewed) upcoming show at David B. Smith Gallery. This monster piece (perhaps 120″ x 40″?) looks to be an further exploration of the “Sowing” concept that we first saw in his Swarm Gallery show last year. We can’t wait to see the completed piece when the show “Collision” opens in November. Discuss Josh Keyes here.
As we mentioned last week, we recently had the chance to stop by Brian Viveros’ Riverside studio for a visit to talk to him about a show we had been looking forward to for a while now. “The Dirtyland” opens this Saturday night (note that it’s not the usual Friday opening) at Thinkspace Gallery and will be a comprehensive exhibition of Brian’s artistic vision. The artist, based in the beautiful IE, is known for his smoking hot girls, often battered and bruised, but still maintaining […]
Sometimes things just creep up on us. Didn’t it seem like yesterday that we were in Riverside covering the monster art retreat that is Baby Tattooville? Well, the annual weekend extravaganza is nearly upon us as we count down to BBTV 2010. With a line-up consisting of Robert Williams, Suzanne Williams, Michael Hussar, Ron English, Johnny Ryan, Spain, Anthony Ausgang, Van Arno, COOP, and William Stout, it’s no wonder that memberships sold out early. However, we have just received a bit of exclusive good news […]
Opening at the second and gallery location for Giant Robot on Sawtelle Street next week is a joint show from Deth P. Sun and Ferris Plock. As you can see, Mr. Sun has been busy preparing a new body of work following the adventures of his beloved feline character as he appears to be trekking through the wilderness. Along the way, only armed with a knife, the wiley cat encounters other creatures as well as some ghosts! We’ve been enjoying Deth’s charming characters and imagery […]
