Futura may live and work in New York City, but the graffiti legend hasn’t had a solo exhibition in his hometown for over 12 years.

We look to see more of the amazing direction he showed us when we saw him in Paris. […]

Our friend and Hawaiian native Nicole Naone recently made her debut solo at Honolulu’s Human Imagination. Entitled Mass, the exhibition gives us a look at the classic female form through subtle compositions which Nicole hand molded in foam and plaster. Diverse in her mediums, we also caught sight of smooth illustrations and sculptures cast in bronze. A very sweet debut showcasing what the full time artist & part time model has achieved since we last time we saw her at this year’s POW WOW.

Futura has always been a legend in the realm of graffiti and street art. Recently, he has taken a step back towards the limelight in the world of art with a show at Galerie Jerome de Noirmont (covered) and a prominent collaboration with Hennessy on their iconic VS bottle.

Our friends at Complex put together a comprehensive write up on the […]

Now with her recent retrospective at The Whitney Museum in full swing, Kusama has set to reclaim the city which was her second home. The first project we want to share with you is set up […]
