Showing: Pablo Delgado – “On Their Level” @ Howard Griffin Gallery (Los Angeles)

Howard Griffin Gallery Los Angeles opened a solo by Pablo Delgado on March 7th entitled On Their Level. After showing last year at their London gallery (covered), the Mexican artist took a different approach to presenting his peculiar work this time. By changing the point of view and challenging the viewer’s perspective, the exhibition “explores multiple perceptions of society, equality, consumerism and temporality.“ Delgado’s street work usually consists of small installations within existing environments, which strongly affects viewing experience. With this new exhibition, he took this idea even further […]

Openings: Nawer – “Colors in Shapesland” @ Hidari Zingaro, Tokyo

Nawer recently opened his successful Tokyo debut at Hidari Zingaro Gallery. Co-curated by Takashi Murakami and Takumi “Kasenyan” Kaseno of the GEISAI executive committee, Colors in Shapeland is a part of KaiKai Kiki’s GEISAI∞Infinity​ project. For this show, the Polish artist created a whole new body of work consisting of his abstract geo-based pieces. While quite different than other artists on the KaiKai Kiki’s roster, Nawer’s futuristic abstract works obviously resonated with the local collectors as the show completely sold out.

Last weekend,  Sarah Joncas (seen above) and Camilla d’Errico (seen below) opened up a joint show together at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles that included good representations of what they were known for. Beauty in the Breakdown featured the feminine portraiture  of Joncas in film-noir settings contrasted against the manga-inspired surreal work of d’Errico.

POW! WOW! ’15 / Streets: Doze Green

Working on probably the biggest wall of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii (more coverage here), the legendary Doze Green and his team painted a mural with warm tones showing his signature characters in action. Using his recognizable line work and intuitive style, the artist who made his name on the streets of NYC came up with an interesting composition on a long wall. Spending days doing the fill ins and shading the large, almost tribal like characters, the sight of his mural slowly turned into a neighborhood attraction […]

Yassine YAZE Mekhnache just launched a new solo exhibition titled The Conference of the Birds at David Bloch Gallery in Marrakech. In the past ten years, the French artist has built up strong ties with Morocco and particularly with the embroiderers of the small mountain village of Tameslouht, in the region of Marrakech, whom it is thought shared encoded information in their silent works for many years. Through a series of thirty large scale canvases, the artist invites the viewer to a mystical journey by merging figurative drawings together […]
