We last heard from Richard Colman when he showed in Toronto (covered) last year with Andrew Schoultz. This time around, he is showing alongside another talented artist, Alex Lukas (covered), at the Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco. Lukas filled the project room with a selection of paintings and monochromatic works populated by a surreal mix of his hooded figures, nudes, and bears. Take a closer look at the opening and work in the photos below… Photo credit: Berlin Tomas (with installation shots by Randy Dodson). Discuss this show here. Discuss Richard Colman here.

Over the weekend, fans of Alex Lukas in the Bay Area saw the return of the Philadelphia-based artist to Guerrero Gallery with a new solo show. Along with what was seen during our studio visit with Lukas featuring his signature dsytopian imagery and submerged cities, the fresh pieces also included some interesting new developments. Among these were series of folded diazotype editions that gave a real dimensionality to his work as well as some pieces with a more abstract look or a “breakdown” of elements [...]

These 10” x 8” enamel paintings are mostly based on sketches inspired by everyday problems and pleasures, often on the [...]
Frieze returned to New York City this weekend, and again put on an top-notch art fair that challenges the dominance of The Armory Show.

Being a graffiti writer himself, Nils started using his camera solely for a documenting purpose only, but it didn’t take long until he [...]
Last week, the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York hosted the opening of JR and José Parlá’s collaborative showing entitled The Wrinkles of the City, Havana. The joint works were based on the time they spent in Cuba a year ago painting street murals together (covered) as part of JR’s continuing project Wrinkles of the City where he photographs senior citizens and pastes their portraits on the walls of city buildings. An example of this was outside the showspace in the form of a mural which the two created several weeks ago (covered). Take a look at all the [...]
