Dalek @ Redux Contemporay

A site-specific installation by Dalek is scheduled to open to the public on January 23rd (6-10pm) at the Redux Contemporary Art Center with Dalek in attendance.

The show is entitled “Broken, Beaten, and Buried,” and will give Dalek a chance to expand on his usual colorful 2D paintings. We are excited to see what him and his team will come up with. A […]

Update: Anthony Lister

We recently came across this picture of Anthony Lister working on an etching for an upcoming release from Paper Monster scheduled for this month.  No details yet as to the edition size, price, or even the image, but from the looks of it, the print will most likely be of the painting seen below that was shown by New Image Art at Art Basel week. We are also looking forward to his two-person show with Craola coming up next month at Fifty24SF, but more on […]

Teaser: Brandt Peters @ Gallery 1988 LA

Brandt Peters’ show “Cackle Factory” opens on February 3rd at Gallery 1988 LA. Thought we would drop a little teaser of what he has been working on for those interested. Looking at his paintings, we are always reminded of the stylings of Jessica Rabbit, perhaps because Brandt draws from his background as a illustrator, character, film, and animation designer.  His masked misfist, deviant animal characters, and unique color palette sets him apart, and we are looking forward to this new body of work.
