Update: Josh Keyes

Josh Keyes recently revealed two new paintings he has completed entitled “Flutter” and “Scorch.” With his participation in the SCOPE NY art fair (which AM will cover) in March and his upcoming solo in May at David B. Smith Gallery, we suspect these will make their appearance at one of these venues. With his predilection for creating works in series, look for him to explore these themes a little more as he fleshes out his new body of work. Discuss Josh Keyes here.

Openings: Brandt Peters @ G1988 LA

AM dropped by Brandt Peters’ solo show “Cackle Factory” (interviewed/previewed) which runs through February 27th at Gallery 1988 LA.  As you will see from the photos, the scuptures and customs round out this body of work nicely.  His unique color palette and details are much more impressive in person so make sure you stop by for a look as there is only one more week left for the exhibition.   See all the photos after the jump.

KAWS x Royal/T Party and Art Exhibition

On the eve before his solo show at Honor Fraser, KAWS kicked things off with, “I Can’t Feel My Face,” a VIP party and art exhibition at Culver City’s Japanese-style maid cafe Royal/T.

Natalia Fabia’s show at Corey Helford “Hooker DreamEscapes” is opening tomorrow (Feb 21st) in the Culver City art district.

Openings: Crash & Oliver Vernon @ Joshua Liner

  AM had the chance to stop by Joshua Liner Gallery to check out two great shows: Unexpected Occurrences by Oliver Vernon and Unfinished Business by Crash (previewed). Both of these artists took us by surprise with their unique styles. Crash has long been regarded as one of the pioneers of graffiti art, but we noticed his works brought a mix of Lichtenstein meets the streets. His raw yet pop-y images leaped out to grab our attention as we passed by each painting.  Oliver Vernon had a very interesting mix of geometric conformity vs. […]

Teaser: Hush “Hymn to Beauty” @ Carmichael Gallery

Hush has been a busy little artist since his last show in the UK (here). On March 5th, he’s going to “skip across the pond” and head straight to Hollywood for a solo at the Carmichael Gallery. We’ve been anxiously waiting to catch a glimpse of the urban sensation’s latest body of work “Hymn to Beauty” and got a hold of little gem: “Butterfly Girl – Siren“. Measuring a whooping 55 x 30 inches, we weren’t surprised to find out that it’s already been sold. Hopefully, […]
