Preview: Deth P. Sun – “Fare Thee Well” @ GR2

Opening at the second and gallery location for Giant Robot on Sawtelle Street next week is a joint show from Deth P. Sun and Ferris Plock. As you can see, Mr. Sun has been busy preparing a new body of work following the adventures of his beloved feline character as he appears to be trekking through the wilderness. Along the way, only armed with a knife, the wiley cat encounters other creatures as well as some ghosts! We’ve been enjoying Deth’s charming characters and imagery […]

Teaser: Joe Sorren – “Interruption” @ Grand Central Art Center

Our friends at the go-to Bay Area art resource, Fecal Face (coverage of their 10 year show here), were able to recently pick sculptor Jud Bergeron’s brain about his collaboration with Joe Sorren (featured) for the acclaimed painter’s first retrospective exhibit, slated to open at California State University Fullerton’s Grand Central Art Center (GCAC) in Santa Ana on Saturday, November 10th. In an effort to shed some light on the collection of unique sculptures produced exclusively for this milestone occasion, entitled “Interruption”, the insightful interview […]

Streets: Banksy in Basque

With “Exit Through the Gift Shop” premiering in Basque Country at the International Film Festival of San Sebastian, it’s not surprising that Banksy fans were keeping their eyes out for stencils from the elusive street artist. Well, looks like one popped up with a man staring a randomly framed section of a painted wall, probably Mr. B’s poke at abstract art. If the man in this image looks familiar, you may remember him from Toronto. So, all signs point to this as being a Banksy […]

Teasers: Hush – “Distant Portrait Series” @ Shooting Gallery NYC Pop-Up

We recently gave you a look at the latest batch of work that Hush (interviewed) has been working on. This series named “Distant Portraits” focuses more on the intent and emotions of his mysterious Geishas in the urban environment. Our question was where is it going to be shown at?

After shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco, Hush will finally be landing in the Big Apple for a pop-up gallery show presented […]

Fame Fest ’10: Erica Il Cane

With the opening of the Fame Festival set for this Saturday night, Erica Il Cane squeezed in two last murals in Grottaglie. The Bologna-based artist’s murals are straight from fairy tales with the feel of old-school illustrations found in antique books, but in wonderful large scale. Take a look at another piece – “the frog prince” – after the jump as well as a video of his unusual technique of handpainted his screenprints.

Teaser: Tara McPherson – “The Bunny in the Moon” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Featured next month in New York at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery will be the bittersweet art from the “Queen of Hearts” Tara McPherson. We’ll be looking forward to seeing what adventures are in store for her signature redheads with their heart motifs (see Dr. Sketchy session), but we’re sure the new body of work will also bring some other surprises for her fans. If you can’t wait until next month, you can catch her signing prints at ZEROFRIENDS in SF tomorrow. Discuss Tara McPherson here.

Update: Jeremy Geddes

It sounds like fans of Jeremy Geddes (interviewed) will be seeing a major show from him stateside come 2012. Showing alongside his friend and esteemed artist / illustrator Ashley Wood at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, the dynamic duo will give New York a taste of what Hong Kong and Beijing have already experienced. 2012 is a long ways off and with prophecies of the end of the world on the horizon, we will keep you up to date on the any details we hear – […]
