Teaser: Nicoletta Ceccoli @ Richard Goodall

San Marino based artist Nicoletta Ceccoli has sent us some exclusive images from her upcoming show at Richard Goodall Gallery in December.  We have been anticipating this show for quite a while since her job as an illustrator does not allow her time to exhibit as often as her fans would like. Her fairytale-like paintings have been described as a having a Ryden-esque feel to them yet softer and more delicate. In particular, we like the clever way in which her characters are painted such […]

Openings: In Language of Angels @ Ad Hoc

With the DJ spinning and the hipsters of Williamsburg crowded about on Friday night, Ad Hoc Art opened their new show “In Language of Angels”. The six artist show was a nice compliment to the diverse Brooklyn crowd. Seen in the exhibit were: the Manga-esqe Camilla d’Errico, the bold Lisa Alisa, the entrancing Sarah Joncas, the embroidery laced layouts of Simone Maynard, the digitally detailed Mijn Schatje, and the dynamic illustrations of MIA. This was a great show for AM to attend as Ad Hoc […]

Teaser: The Drawing Room @ Thinkspace

Looking forward to this show at Thinkspace on November 7th not only because Audrey Kawasaki is in it, but also because she is curating it. It seems that artist curated group shows (others that come to mind include Luke Chueh and Travis Louie) usually include some very good names from their genre for some obvious reasons. Audrey’s assembled cast is no exception – Stella Im Hultberg, Amy Sol, Kukula, Brandi Milne, Brian Viveros, Catherine Brooks, Mari Inukai, Nomi Chi, Lauren Albert, Jessica McCourt, Julia Sonmi […]

Yoshitomo Nara @ BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art

If you are lucky enough to be in the UK and haven’t stopped by to see Yoshitomo Nara’s show at the Baltic, this is the last weekend. He teamed up with Hideki Toyoshima (one of the founding members of graf) to build three cross-shaped houses called the “A to Z Project” for the exhibit. It would be so satisfying to be able to walk slowly through this exhibit and explore all the nooks and crannies … hopefully AM will be able to experience something similar […]

Preview: Joe Ledbetter @ M Modern

Palm Springs will play host to Joe Ledbetter’s solo show “Hunters and Gatherers” tomorrow night at M Modern Gallery. His usual cast of characters play out the multiple stories and interactions that he creates for them. He seems to have moved away from the lighter faded linework that he had been experimenting with in previous shows and again is painting with stronger silhouettes. Some selected pieces after the jump.

Preview: Faile @ Lazarides – Vauxhall, UK

When we last left Faile, the Brooklyn collective was hard at work prepping for their upcoming show in the UK.  Now, AM brings you an exclusive glimpse of the show. Set in a abandoned school house in Vauxhall London, Faile and Laz bring the heat on November 7th with “Lost in Glimmering Shadows”. It will be another signature “must see or will regret events” much like the Outsiders show in NYC. Faile – Lost in Glimmering Shadows Lillian Baylis School, Lollard St London, SE11 6PY […]

Preview: Liz McGrath @ Iguapop

Artist and musician Liz McGrath is opening a show tonight in Spain called “Tears of the Crocodile.”  Her grotesque yet beautiful sculptures have always been eye-catching and strangely fascinating.  Her show at Iguapop will feature many detailed works that must be looked at closely to fully appreciate their intricacies.  Examples of this after the jump.

Preview: Nate Frizzell @ Cerasoli:LeBasse

Nate Frizzell’s “Put on a Happy Face” opens November 8th at the new Cerasoli:LeBasse gallery. He took a little time to talk with us about his first solo show. “With this show, I’m trying to convey the mixed emotions that people have from day to day. Some may be depressing, some happy, some scared, and some brave. I feel like for myself, my mood is constantly changing, and I act accordingly. I put on a different mask to let people know where I stand at […]

Preview: In the Language of Angels @ Ad Hoc

This Saturday, Ad Hoc Art will be opening “In The Language of Angels“. With six young and extremely talented artists from around the world: Sarah Joncas (Canada), Camilla d’Errico (Canada), Mia (USA), Lisa Alisa (Russia), Mijn Schatje (France) and Simone Maynard (Australia), it should be exciting to see each of them display the softer “angelic” side of Pop Surrealism.   We’ve gathered some special preview images of the pieces that will be on display at the show after the jump.

Update: Amy Sol @ Mondo Bizzarro & New Print

One of the shows we are looking forward to at the end of 2008 is Amy Sol’s “smoke & water” at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery.  Some new images have surfaced besides one that we previously posted; one of which is seen on the show card above.  The use of the tsunami theme is quite interesting as Amy rarely paints any of her characters in distress.  Perhaps the girl and the swan-like character with the basket are there as rescuers… Also, something you should be aware of […]
